The best thing about shopping for hats is that they work for any season. Straw floppy beach hats are perfect for those sunny seaside days or afternoons in the park, and wool hats and beanies are ideal for chilly temperatures. There are all sorts of colors and styles to choose from, so now is the time to get shopping.
If it’s warm out and you want something to wear to a picnic, luncheon or even the beach, you can’t go wrong with a wide-brim straw hat. They protect your face and eyes from the sun, and their neutral-tones match almost anything, from kaleidoscope print bathing suits to polka dot dresses. And if you want something more casual than that, check out snap backs. Pick up one with a funny saying on it, or go traditional and support your favorite athletic team.
When it comes time to retire your warm-weather lids start looking for beanies and wool hats. Rag & Bone makes a felted wool fedora that’s both rockish and warm. You can wear it with a leather jacket, or if it’s really cold, a long wool coat--the hat works with both styles of outerwear. And don’t forget about the beanie. There are so many ways to style them, just pick the color and knit that’s right for you.
