It’s off to the races for the Kentucky Derby this weekend, and we’re just as excited for the parade of festive hats as we are for the actual race. If past is precedent, the stars are aligned to show up in creative takes on the southern belle headpiece, a tradition that’s believed to bring good luck. Check out a few of our favorites from years past in the gallery.
