I took an unexpected trip into Manhattan yesterday and, according to the world of fashion, fall has arrived. Why this surprises me is anybody’s guess and yet I still find myself surprisingly sad. Not to say fall isn’t bringing some fantastic things our way [think tweed, plaid, leather and oh I’m sorry Donna Karan but is that a popped collar you’re bringing back, girlfriend?] but it’s July and I’m a teacher so just saying the word fall is enough to give me hives. Lucky for me, as the fashion world gets ready to take on the fall lines, their summer lines are on major markdown.
In honor of this new holiday, here are a few hats worth…well, worth tipping your hat to.
Perfect beach hat
Casual straw or formal linen? Both, please
Bigger is better, I always say. Classic black or fun coral
My version of the perfect hat
Sunglasses and a hat, all in one? Winner of the world’s funkiest hat.
*National Hat Month was invented by yours truly in order to justify the purchasing of multiple hats. Join me. It’s going to be a great tradition.
