Footloose and fancy-free men and women alike are donning hats more and more these days. There was a definite drought of classic styles between the 50s and more recent times but, thanks to the the rise of vintage/festival style in everyday life, the hat is most definitely back. Trilbies, Bowlers, Fedoras.. they're all so easy to throw on and they can jazz up an outfit no end.
They can make a formal outfit more casual and quirky, or smarten up a scruffy look. The summer is a great time for wearing hats because they keep your head cool and shaded (plus a sunburnt scalp is by far the most painful thing I've ever experienced). I wear mine positioned on the crown and tipped back, with a sun dress, sunglasses and sandals.
