Not until recently have I thought of hats as the perfect accessory. When I think of hats my mind instantly thinks Kentucky Derby! The women come to the race in crazy, fun, big hats that give the outfit emotion. Hats can spark a whole new vibe to a simply bland outfit.
Although the Kentucky Derby hats are amazing and memorable, they can still be tamed and worn in an everyday setting. Every outfit should include some type of statement piece and in my outfit today my hat is the focus. This sudden inspiration came from the Moncler Gamme Rouge spring 2014 ready-to-wear runway show with their being hats galore. A hat was worn in 48 looks throughout the show. It was the staple piece to enhance the diversity and urban culture of Giambattista Valli’s collection.
In my opinion, hats can be a tricky accessory to wear. You can dress up a simple outfit with a fedora or make a sundress a bit trendier with a floppy hat. Today I went on an impulsive shopping spree in the town of Princeton and wore a casual outfit. I had combined floral shorts with a chambray vest and Steve Madden flats. I finished it off with the main focus from the Moncler Gamme Rouge collection and added a gray fedora. Hats are fun, different and this one happened to complete my outfit. So find a hat that gets some heads turning and create some good vibes with your next outfit!
