New Orleans

It will be Easter in the Crescent City before you know it, and we’ll be celebrating—that’s right—with parades!  Be an early riser if you plan to catch the French Quarter Easter Parade and scout out a good spot along the route.

After working up an appetite chasing floats, mosey on over to Cafe Adelaide for “Brunch with Hattitude”. Every Saturday and Sunday from 7:30 AM to 1:30 PM, we offer (up to) 3 complimentary martinis to guests who brunch with us while wearing a hat. Now what better time could there be to sport that fancy Easter bonnet—hats on you, drinks on us!

If, however, you’re in a bind and don’t have the proper chapeau for the occasion, we’ve got you covered. We know just where to look and we’ve also asked style expert Andi Eaton for her advice.

A NOLA native, author of “New Orleans Style”, travel and style blogger at and founder of the Southern Coalition of Fashion & Design, Andi is the perfect person to guide you through the ins and outs of fashion in the deep south.

Where to Shop For Your Easter Hat


Yvonne LaFleur (Andi’s Top Pick)
This ten-thousand square foot shop has everything to offer in high fashion and elegant European style: a fragrance department, bridal boutique, sportswear, gowns, millinery and more. For this sophisticated shopping destination, recommending the perfect hat is definitely a specialty.


Neon Heart (Andi’s Trendy Pick)
Owned by Alli McNally (former London model and stylist) and her husband Chris, this trendy uptown shop offers thoughtfully selected, high quality, fashion-forward pieces for men and women.


Meyer the Hatter (Lizzie’s Classic Pick)
Famed as the “South’s Largest Hat Store”, this family-owned business was established over 120 years ago by Sam H. Meyer. His grandson, 88 years young, still works five days a week in this unique store with heaps of character and a rich history.

Happy shopping and Happy Easter!
