Hold Onto Your Hat, Doll

Ladies, start your engines. The Kentucky Derby is coming to town! Well, not actually. But the elegant, large-brimmed hats found at such elite occasions are! As the summer approaches and the sun shines brighter we need to adjust our accessories accordingly.

Bucket hats, or cloche hats, are another way to do this.These 1920s inspired bonnets are perfect way to add a touch of vintage to any summer outfit!

Hats can do more than just block the sun. They can add a little flair too!

Hats Off To You, Sir

Newsboy caps have to be THE MOST attractive and stylish hat a guy can wear! Throw on one of these neutral colored “grandpa hats” with a hoodie/suit jacket combo and you’re gold! Newsboy caps have a way of adding a little more style to the overplayed, predictable t-shirt and jeans look that most guys tend to sport.  Of course, they can always be dressed up with a nice leather jacket or scarf. (Bold, confident men need only apply).

Fedoras can also have this style-enhancing effect. Again giving the casual guy a little more class.

Perhaps what I enjoy most about these hats is not their tendency to give even the most fashionably clueless guys a chance in this trendy, hipster world but the way they remind me of simpler times. Times when chivalry prevailed. A time of scotch-drinking, pipe smoking, ruggedly handsome men.Those type of men… never  go out of style.
