The Mad Hatter

Hats are typically a scarcity in my wardrobe. In the past, I would wear the occasional knit beanie in the frigid cold, a floppy straw hat on Beaver Lake, and a baseball cap on a desperately bad hair day. But now, I see them everywhere in NWA, so I think I want hats to help mix-up my arsenal of accessories. I want fedoras in all colors and materials, an extremely wide brimmed floppy felt hat (like this one), a newsboy cap, and of course we can't live in the South without a cowboy hat. But the likelihood of hats becoming a permanent staple in my accessory rotation (like belts and scarves) is slim, so I don't want to invest. Forever 21 will be my best friend to fill my current hat craving.

Before I become the mad hatter, I want to make sure hats are wearable in my everyday wardrobe. Because, like platform shoes, I am unsure how appropriate hats are in middle America's professional space. What do you think?

  1. I ADORE hats. I have fedora, newsboy, cowboy, baseball, beret, and the list goes on! It is one of the best ways to look totally casual yet put together or to add an element of "funk" to an outfit when you go out. Phenomenal!
