Our Editor at Large has an un going love affair with hats, here she tells us why.
Up until the 1960’s most women of every class would not step outside their house without wearing a hat- not to become nostalgic, but doesn’t a hat or hat-like accessory make every outfit special and wonderful?
I remember my grandmother always wearing a hat (with a little veil), I was so fascinated by it and the whole ritual of putting that pretty thing on…..and was wondering today, why hats disappeared from the ladies’ heads.
A hat is not just an emergency tool to hide a bad hair day. A hat is a statement: You can’t hide wearing a hat. If you think „I am not a hat person“ try those lovey hair loops and bands, and I guarantee: the next step up will be a hat. It is not just excellent sun protection, but also makes every look feel complete, fun and glamorous.
I myself own several hats- and whenever I step out with a hat, I get complimented and women and men tell me, that they feel inspired to wear a hat when they see me.
These two quotes come to my mind when thinking about hats this season and I cannot wait to step outside in Jeans, my Irma T-Shirt and a straw-hat by Lola hats.
“A crown is merely a hat that lets the rain in”.
Frederick the Great
“A hat is a flag, a shield, a bit of Armor, and the badge of femininity. A hat is the difference between wearing clothes and wearing a costume; it’s the difference between being dressed and being dressed up; it’s the difference between looking adequate and looking your best. A hat is to be stylish in, to glow under, to flirt beneath, to make all others seem jealous over, and to make all men feel masculine about. A piece of magic is a hat.”
