FOR THE 2017 JUBILEE WE SUGGEST:
Our rule for dressing is to maintain the Red Hat Society's tradition of "red hats and purple outfits if you are 50 or older, pink hats and lavender outfits if you are under 50."
Some of us are tempted to wear those beautiful outfits in other chic colors, purchased for other occasions. We want to remind you that Red Hat events are special, in that we distinguish ourselves by donning regalia in our own red/purple or pink/lavender colors. So when you do not honor the tradition, you are not fully participating in the spirit of the Red Hat Society, and it shows.
The Georgia Red Hat Jubilee will require that you wear our traditional colors the entire time you are at the event,
including travel, and reserves the right to ask you to change (into traditional colors) or leave if necessary.
Your purple outfit may, of course, have lots of red accents and accessories if you like. The occasional use of small bits of other neutral colors, such as black, white, silver is acceptable.
Special character costumes can be a bit more flexible; however the red/purple or pink/lavender basis must be maintained.
Your Hat -
You must be wearing a "red hat" at all times (purple is acceptable if it is your birthday month). When appropriate for the activity, "hats" may also consist of decorated headbands, clips, fascinators, etc.
