hats off to you
If you haven't discovered ASOS, the British shopping site that has over 40,0000 designer labels, including their own, including lines for women, men, plus accessories, jewelry & beauty, (not to mention free worldwide shipping)--get yourself online right now and check it out. I am in love with my ASOS Wide Brim Fedora in a lovely camel felt with a black band. Cool and chic and great with both a feminine blouse or a military style jacket. And being a girl from Montana, the cowboy hat is always going to be one of my favorites.
Slouchy knit beanies are a cute right now look, and I have to admit I do have a rabbit fur trapper hat that is so cozy and fun--I bought it last year during a ski trip and have worn it often this winter as well. My friend Kacy inherited a fabulous fur cossack hat that she describes as a bit "Marge Simpson", but I think looks fantastic on her and all the more fabulous because it is vintage.
If you are in the mood for more a warm weather lid, go for a floppy 70's hat or a straw fedora of some kind. For the past couple of years I have worn my straw trilby all summer long, with shorts, sun dresses, and my swimsuit at the pool. So much so its time for a new one. Grab a girlfriend and hit an accessories department to check out the latest styles first, if you are feeling a little hesitant about what looks best on you. Being a head case was never so much fun.
