Inspired by 70s style, the floppy felt hat is my must-have this season. The classic wide-brim floppy will not only protect from sun damage, but will add a bit of glamour and bohemian flair.
The 70’s Floppy Felt Hat by Asos is my most recent purchase. I have been obsessing for months and finally found the perfect one. Made from thick felt/wool, the shape of the hat is perfect and adjustable (but hard to clean). The band of ribbon adds a simple embellishment that is soft and feminine.
Inspired by various bohemian and hippie influences, this hat has a retro-modern style. Pair this item with cut-off jean shorts and peasant top, big dangely earrings and ankle boots for an effortlessly casual look. Dress this look up by pairing with wide-leg pants and blazer or sundress and chunky heels. Or, channel your inner Brigitte Bardot and couple this floppy hat with wide-framed sunglasses and striped t-shirt.
The key to the look is confidence. Be fearless and rebellious this summer and try one on for size.
Worn for centuries, the Panama hat has survived the test of time. These hats are in fact made and originated in Equador, but then exported to Panama where it assumed the name.
These hats are essential not to mention convenient for travel. The lightweight straw can be packed-away in a suitcase readily and it’s design allows it to return to it’s original shape.
The Madewell Panama hat is a great option. It’s light, breathable material and wide-brimmed frame will be required and appreciated in the hot sun. I love the masculine, classic style of the Panama and that it can be paired perfectly with any kind of suit – business or bathing.
