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.
