I’m going to come right out and say it: I think people don’t wear nearly enough hats. Hats are probably my single favorite accessory. In fact, I’m virtually never seen out of doors without a hat. What began, though, as a bit of extra protection against the sun for my ridiculously pale skin (for lo, I come of the Transparent Peoples and go from lily white to lobster red faster than a Lamborghini can go from zero to sixty) rapidly grew into a signature and a philosophy of life. Hats add dignity or whimsey, depending on the style. They can be entirely practical or they can simply be fun and decorative. And since they aren’t nearly as commonly worn as they used to be, hats do tend to get one noticed.

Cloches not your style? Don’t worry. There are plenty of other options that are equally superfantastic. Take, for instance, this fabulous straw beach hat:
Of course, for an evening out on the town, a brimmed hat isn’t always practical. That’s when a great cocktail hat is worth its weight in gold. I’m rather in love with this whimsical one with its eye-grazing veil and cat stencil.
If you haven’t worn a hat lately, go try one on. You may be amazed at how much fun you have and how superfantastic you look!
