WHO WE ARE & WHAT WE DO
Press play above to see more Simply Devine images.
Simply Devine is run by award-winning milliner and businesswoman Liz Devine-Wright (yes that really is her name). What began as a local shop in the Yorkshire town of Tadcaster, situated within easy access of York, Harrogate and Leeds, has become a popular destination for women with discerning tastes who want a very special hat for when they need to look their absolute best. Liz supplies hats up and down the country, from Berwick to Berkshire, Land’s End to Lanarkshire, and is happy to arrange special appointments for those customers who either prefer a personal service, or who are unable to visit during normal working hours.
She offers beautiful hats, hatinators (not quite a full hat and sits on a band) and fascinators from well-known British designers, but also welcomes original creations from talented milliners who are just starting their careers.
With such a huge choice of designs, colours, styles and prices, there is something to suit every taste and budget for any occasion.
And her range doesn’t stop there; Simply Devine also stocks a huge range of accessories from handbags to jewellery to pashminas to bridal tiaras – to complement your special outfit.
Liz is an enthusiastic networker, loves to visit friends and family, travels to fashion shows, and is always on the lookout for interesting and innovative stock, so you may have seen her zooming around the country in her Hatmobile. She has even been known to personally deliver hats to different parts of the country – if she is passing nearby on her way to somewhere else! She has just taken delivery of a new Mini Countryman with Simply Devine livery and a personalised number plate SD11 HAT (of course!) So look out for her and give her a wave if you happen to see her passing.

HATS & FASCINATORS
SOME OF YORKSHIRE’S FINEST HEADWEAR
If you love hats, then Simply Devine fine hats are perfect for weddings, christenings, brides, mothers of the bride and groom and the races – including Royal Ascot.
Remember that Royal Ascot has very specific rules about ladies’ headwear and while hats and fascinators must be worn at all times, the regulations for the Royal enclosure are even stricter, with fascinators not allowed and hats which must have a base of at least 4 inches (10 centimetres).
At Simply Devine, there is a huge choice of style and colour – and we can also customise a bespoke hat for you so you can be assured that no-one else will have the same wonderful creation as you.
We can add touches of colour and accessories to your hat to match your special outfit.
Our fantastic range of styles varies from classic elegance to the whimsical to couture, but all Simply Devine fine hats are quality, British-made headwear.
Liz greets all her guests with a warm Yorkshire welcome, and whether you are looking for inspiration or know exactly what you want, we can find you a fabulous piece which is guaranteed to turn heads!
Hats, Hats and More Hats…
But we don’t just deal in fancy hats! We also have a great collection of everyday and winter hats, from funky summer trilbys to winter warmers and snugly faux fur headbands, with an enormous selection to help you get ahead.
Liz has just taken delivery of a new line in men’s top hats from upmarket supplier Christy’s of London. These superb quality top hats in shades of black and grey, are perfect for weddings and the races.
Measuring for your hat
Measuring for your hat can be done in one of two ways.
- Take a measuring tape and place it around the circumference of the head, slightly above the ears, with the tape held fairly closely to the head. Measure your head and then compare the measurement with the table below to find your hat size.
- If you don’t have a tape measure, then use a piece of string to measure around your head and then check the length using a ruler or other measure. Use measurement in centimetres for a more accurate fit.
