Hats off to summer

Remember when Justin (Timberlake, not Beiber) brought SEXY back? Well he brought the fedora back too. It’s been a couple of years now and fedoras are still one of the must have accessories for summer. Obviously, we must trade in our wool and heavier versions for straw. I prefer the traditional camel straw with a black ribbon, as it is the easiest to wear with almost anything. The key with hats is to wear them every so often. You don’t want it to become your staple, rather wear it on occasion.  Also, a thing to consider is that the angle at which you wear your hat changes it’s formality. I was going to show the differences, but the photo shoot would have been a bit of an embarrassment.

Brixton has always been my go-to company for hats; they have a bunch of different models and a great fit. My favorite hats from Brixton this season are “the Drifter,” which features a rope rather than a ribbon and “the Mill,” with its version of the uber-popular 5 panel.

I had two straw hats in LA that were squashed by a 70-pound duffel bag when I moved back, so this year I had to search for replacements. I was out with a friend when I stumbled across a larger rimmed black and straw hat from H&M. Not only does it look great but it also only cost me $10.  Next week I will let you in on some of the do’s and don’ts of summer fashion… Let the summer games begin!
