Summer Hats

To continue on the same subject as my man Brian Etco (see Hybrid Summer Accessory), hats have become an intricate part of the summer look. Whether it’s for hiding a horrible hairdo or to simply give a finishing touch to your outfit, hats can add a twist to your everyday wardrobe. Let’s take a closer look…


Popularized by President Theodore Roosevelt when he visited the Panama Canal construction, straw hats are designed to protect the head from the sun and the heat. There are several styles of straw hats, but all of them are made of woven straw.


The newsboy hat style was popular in Europe and the United States in the late 19th and early 20th centuries among both boys and adult men. As the name suggests, it is now associated with newspaper boys, and it is sometimes associated with golfers as well. Today, the newsboy cap has become a timeless classic, just as popular with trendy women as is it with men of all ages.


The Fedora / Trilby is a soft felt hat that is creased lengthwise down the crown and pinched in the front on both sides. It was invented in the mid-1920s. The word comes from the title of an 1882 play by Sardou, “Fedora”, the heroine of which wore this style hat.
