STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Brimming From Ear To Ear

Style Advice of the Week

Bad hair days and unreasonably cold winters are both reasons to shield your eyes. From the beaming sun, hats have always been there to make the uncomfortable more comfortable. Recently hats are no longer just for convenience, but they are used to add a nice finishing touch to any outfit.

For the winter season, these wide brimmed floppy hats were mainly available in darker colors such as black, gray or brown. But as the seasons change so too do the color selections: blacks become light grays, browns become tan. Regardless of the color the design, the wide brim of the hat makes it noticeable and a statement in every outfit. Growing up we were constantly told, “Take your hat off because your are indoors or at the dinner table.” If you chose to wear the hat like this Fashionista then it shows that you are not afraid to break the rules and step outside of your comfort zone. It is a hat that can turn many heads when walking down the streets of Boylston, but being noticed for your willingness to try something new is not a bad thing.

If you are like me and were a little hesitant when you first saw this style emerge,because you are not sure what to pair it with, a great place to start is shopping sites that sell the hat and see what else the model is wearing. The hat this Fashionista is wearing is from Free People. This Fashionista chose to pair it with a skirt and denim, but it also goes great with a casual dress or a pair of jeans. The versatility of this hat can carry you through all the seasons from the time we shed our coats to when jeans are traded in for shorts and boots are traded in for canvas sneakers and flip flops.
