Trend Watch: Floppy Hats

by on August 13, 2012

Bohemian-style floppy hats have made their way in and out of fashion over the years – it looks like they’ll be making an appearance both this Summer and in the fast-approaching Fall.

I absolutely love these hats – I think they’re very feminine, glamorous, and evoke a romantic vintage style. I seriously wish I could pull this trend off, but unfortunately I think I look ridiculous in floppy hats (and hats in general). They look great with summer dresses, structured jackets and knit sweaters in colder weather; I love Kourtney Kardashian’s all-black look that she’s created, looking very chic:

I know that the black hat in the top right isn’t floppy, but I really liked that style – very rock-band-from-the-70s-chic. I surprisingly like the green hat – the color looks amazing with her hair and is very wearable. If I looked good in them, I would probably get one in classic black just because it would go with pretty much anything and looks great with any hair color.

The hats I’ve shown you are from Nasty Gal, but I know that American Apparel, Urban Outfitters, and most major department stores carry them as well.

What do you think of floppy hats?
