As a hat lover since the day I was born, I’d like to give a heartfelt thank you to the fedora for reacquainting women with hats. The fedora has gone way past trend to become a fashion staple, and now I’d like to introduce you to the felt floppy hat. Glamour girls–you know, those who like to be seen lounging by the pool, not in it–are rather acquainted with the felt floppy hat’s cousin, the big straw floppy hat. But I can attest that the felt hat is much easier to wear than the straw one. I mean, hats are expected in the colder months and don’t seem as forced as in the summer. Also, few items can bridge the divide between the boho-chic look and the edgy-downtown vibe like the felt floppy hat. To prove this point, I put together one day and one night look where the felt floppy hat was the foundation. To work the downtown-bohemian look, contrast sleek, fitted fabrics with more plush ones and top the body-conscious outfit with a looser piece of outerwear. The result is a luxe and chic head-to-toe look that will have the style hawks flocking.
