You know what I love? Hats.
I wore them a lot as a kid; from baseball caps to straw hats to crazy Joker hats, you name it. However, when I hit high school I stopped, although I don’t really know why.
Either way, I think it’s time I start wearing hats again! Last Christmas, I got my first “grown up” hat from my mom, a really cute blue fedora with a peacock feather in it from Accessorize. And recently, I was shopping at H&M with BagaholicBoy (can I just say how impressed I am with H&M? I know they came to Singapore awhile ago now but I haven’t really had the chance to really look through, but what amazing stuff) and chanced upon this classic, sophisticated hat, and I think I’ve found a great everyday hat. (I don’t care if it’s too hot for hats here!)
Wanna start wearing hats too? Here are some of my picks.
1. H&M Wool Hat: My first pick, of course, was the hat from H&M. If I can remember correctly, it was $24 which is totally reasonable. And look how cool it is! It’ll go with everything, don’t you think?
2. Shopbop Bop Basics Raffia Fedora: Shopbop is probably my favorite online shop (as recommended to me by Roseanne), and they have their own in-house brand of style basics, and I love their “Bop Basic Fedora Hat”; a casual brown hat if you’re not into black every single day.
3. Melissa Odabash Jemima Sun Hat: I can’t remember the occasion, but my friend Gloria and I were doing something in the sun (beach? swimming? sigh my memory), and she came out in a huge, floppy straw hat. It was amazing. She looked like a mysterious glamour woman; not to mention how good it is at protecting your face from the sun (she doesn’t have a single wrinkle, either). I think we all need a massive straw hat for super sunny days.
