A green hat.

A green hat.

I love the resurrection of old trends and fashions. I am perfectly aware that in some circles of society formal hats never went out of style, but I don’t see any reason why they shouldn’t return to the masses. I love seeing stylish women promenade into churches in feathered and flowered hats. Something about wearing a nice hat makes you hold your head a little higher - or simply feel like you are attending a royal wedding! That’s how I feel when I style this fun, green number. Something about wearing a hat with a bit of flash takes a little bravery, and I love to test myself.

As if wearing a hat with personality isn’t fun enough, shopping for vintage hats, especially, is an art and it should be enjoyed. I have the best time checking out local Chattanooga places in search of fun hats. This green one came from The Knitting Mill. I tried it on while looking into an old vanity mirror and had such an ‘old Hollywood” moment. I almost wish I had some lovely silk gloves to wear, to really push this look over the top.

Not all fun hats have to be vintage. If you have been reading my blog for any number of time, you have certainly noticed that I love hats as an accessory in general. A few of my favorite places to pick new styles up are Urban Outfitters, Anthropologie and Mod Cloth. I simply think some outfits aren’t complete without a hat! I can see a lovely old Southern women telling her young granddaughter just that. Ensue feelings of nostalgia.

Below, I have linked some similar new hats that you may like to work into your wardrobe! Enjoy!
