There is something about summer that I like. It’s not the heat or the clothes, but rather the fact that on a bad hair day I can go “under cover.”
Yes, I can hide my hair under a hat if I want and I still look great, or at least I think so. I’ve always been the kind of gal that can wear a hat too and I don’t mean a ball cap either. I like the nice straw ones with wide brims or fedora style.
Recently I purchase a new white straw fedora with a colorful band. Although the band doesn’t quite go with everything I found a way to make it work with outfits that the color is different. How? Well I wrapped ribbon atop the old and fastened it with a floral pin. I have other ideas as well that will make it work and I can constantly change it up to match my outfits.
Although the girls in Sex and the City 2 have made many hat styles popular again, I’ve never really found them to be out of style.
The one thing I want to impress upon others is that it is acceptable for a woman to wear a hat indoors, but disrespectful for men. So why the difference? It goes back to early Christian times and women having to wear head coverings in a place of worship.
Also a woman many leave her hat on during the playing of the National Anthem so long as it’s not considered a unisex one like a baseball cap.
So for all you ladies out there if you walk in somewhere donning a hat and you’re asked to remove it, kindly let them know etiquette states you don’t need to and politely tell them they might not want to see what’s underneath. Remember it’s all about the “hattitude.”
