2024 Best Hats for Party in the Park

The Designers Leather Clothiers

You wouldn’t expect to find such a selection of handmade cocktail hats and fascinators in a Beacon Hill leather-goods store. But they’re all here, and they’re all fabulous, festooned with feathers, flowers, bows, beads, and lots of love. You’ll become fast friends with the charming owner, who opened the biz with her husband in the 1980s; in fact, odds are good she’ll want you to send photos of your get-up after the big event.
