Hat Trick

My hair is usually too big to wear a proper hat, but every now and then I get into a “hat mood,” which is often brought on by watching old black-and-white movies and various TV shows featuring pimps.

Lately, I’ve seen a lot of beautiful vintage numbers while out on Style Tour stops at NVISION and Talk of the Town, and decided to (kind of) get in on the act.

I originally bought this hat as a gift for my dad, but he decided he wanted a brown one instead because he’s spoiled. Luckily(?), we both have huge heads, so it fit me just fine.

I tied a colorful scarf around my waist (the same one I used in my hair here and as a cravat here) underneath the skirt to add some texture.

Thrifted oxford, skirt, clutch, bangles, and scarf; Hats in the Belfry hat; Anthropologie earrings; Rupert Sanderson boots (Century 21 score!)

Back in the day, people wore hats all the time. Do you? What the heck do you do with your hair when you wear them?

    I’m a huge fan of hats, but like you my head is ginormious. I buy men’s hats cause they’re larger and adds feminine accents like a bow or ribbon.

      @Fajr That’s a good idea! I’m always embarrassed when they ask about the circumference of the ol’ dome–might just be best to borrow from the boys.

    love this look!

    LOVE hats but my head is very small, like pea sized so most times I have to use my hair to help the hat remain on my head.

    That hat looks great on you – it really suits you well. I like the way hats look but only wear them on occasion. They often end up collecting dust in my closet more than anything!

    I also have to comment on those great boots – those were a major score! Nice!

      @Beautifully Invisible: I rarely get to wear my hats because my hair is usually too big!

    I love this outfit, and yes, I think bigger heads are good! Most actresses have larger than average noggins as well…..
