Who doesn’t love getting all gussied up in fancy duds for Easter? The tradition of donning a new look dates back centuries as a symbol of rebirth, and frankly, we love any excuse to add a dress or snazzy pair of shoes to our closet.
Of course, nothing says “Easter” quite like a home-crafted bonnet — especially if you plan on marching down the streets to show it off in a parade. Like the Irving Berlin tune says, “In your Easter bonnet with all the frills upon it, you'll be the grandest lady in the Easter parade.”
If you’re looking for some inspiration for your own fantastic holiday hat, take a cue from the amazing ladies in the photos below. Whether they were part of a parade or enjoying Easter dinner with their families, these women have their elaborate Easter bonnets in all their over-the-top excellence on display.
