Fact: In the winter time we are forced to cover our heads with beanies and wool hats with earflaps to ensure that we don’t lose an ear on the way into work. But now that spring is back, we can retire those ugly toppers and have some fun with headwear as a fashion statement rather than a necessity. Yay! It’s really no surprise that the floppy hat just keeps coming back in style. It became quite the stylish piece back in the 60s thanks to bohemian beauties such as Brigitte Bardot rocking the style. And rock it she did…
Fast forward through to around the late noughties when celebs such as Sienna Miller rocked the same boho chic while J-Lo added some hip-hoppy edge to her hip floppy. Well it seems the hat is back for 2014 as it has been seen on many a teen-queen and made countless appearances at the achingly cool Coachella festival.
Other celebs such as Khloe Kardashian and Nicole Richie have embraced a more structured take on the style with a less floppy, more wide-brimmed hat. Whether you’re embracing your inner hippy or looking for something a little more sharp, there’s no doubt that you need one of these hats in your repertoire this summer!
