Hats Off: Why We Love Mariel (and Audrey)


Audrey Hepburn has long been loved for her iconic fashion sense. Classic, feminine and ever so chic define her looks and women from every walk of life love the starlet for her style and grace. With hat season approaching, we’re taking a look at our favorite Audrey Hepburn millinery moments for inspiration. Then, we’re heading to the best place in Denver for channeling our inner Audrey – Denise Snyder’s Mariel boutique. Need an excuse to don your new accessory? We also have the inside scoop on Colorado’s “hat friendly” charitable soirees this spring and beyond. From Hattitude to Polo, we’re stepping out in style.

Mariel, in the heart of Cherry Creek North, offers Denver's best selection of fabulous hats.
