This blog is about hats.
Yup – hats.
The other day at work a debate broke out – is it now deemed socially acceptable to wear ‘fashion hats’ to compliment ones outfit, or to hide a bad hair day or is it for the fashion elite only?
When I saw a parade of wide-brim hats come down the runway for Saint Laurent’s Spring 2013 show, it pretty much solidified that the hat trend was here to stay and within moments it had poured onto the streets. Indeed not a day goes by when I don’t see a fashion editor/model/fashion blogger strutting their stuff wearing a fedora hat but is it okay to just wear one to the pub, to grab coffee or to commute to the office?
My husband hates me wearing hats (other than bobble/beanie hats in winter). Whenever I try a fedora on I’m told I look like a try-hard, wanna-be fashion blogger etc. When I bought the subject up at work it was a very split vote – 50% think it’s totally out of bounds, 50% think hats are totes fabulous.
I suit hats, I have one of those faces and I would like nothing more to finish my look with a good felt fedora, but at what stage is it okay? I scoured through pinterest and tumblr to find some amazing hat looks and can’t help but feel without the hat the outfits would just be a bit….meh….
I’m very much a t-shirt and jeans kind of girl really think that a good strong hat would really add something to my outfit, even if it just makes me look a little bit more put together. It might be time for me to take the plunge….
Hats off to you…!
