STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: It's Kind of A Floppy Story

The floppy hat is growing to be very popular recently. It is similar to the fedora hat in the sense that it is typically made from felt and often seen in dark or muted colors. They are typically seen adorned with a thin braid around the crown, a wide piece of ribbon or even just plain. They differ from the fedora however, because they do not crease on the top, in the center as the fedora does. These hats are perfect at any time of the year because they can be found in different materials. As this Fashionista is showing, they can be found in felt, which is perfect for the colder months. They can also be found in straw, which is perfect for the warmer months. The floppy felt hat is perfect for colder months because it provides warmth while being fashionable. In the warmer months, it blocks your eyes from the sun and serves as shade for your face from the dangerous UV rays.

This Fashionista has made her floppy hat the star of her outfit by pairing it with a cropped, gray top, a high-waisted, black skirt and an off white cardigan. She topped it off with over- the-knee, black, leather boots and a matching statement necklace. This outfit is perfect because the days are starting to get warmer, but there can still be a brisk breeze in the morning and evening. The felt hat is the perfect accessory here because it adds the right amount of detail and color to the outfit. This mauve purple is such a perfect, unique and beautiful color and the simple detail of the felt bow adds interest without detracting from the hat overall.
