Hat Obsessed

DowntonAbbeyHat
I like to call this my new Downton Abbey hat. I love it almost as much as I love the show.

I just bought another hat, the one pictured above, and so I’m afraid my hat obsession continues. Besides the practicality of a hat, as it allows for both eye and skin protection, hats are also a fabulous accessory that make me yearn for fashion of the 1920s, 1930s, 1940s, and the 1950s when hats were incredibly stylish and sophisticated. With the continuing deescalation of dressy fashion as it continually becomes more and more “comfortable,” there is less need for stylish hats. Remember when women wore hats to church? To events? Yes, we see them worn at horse races, where women purchase gorgeous hats, but wouldn’t it be nice to see them come back in fashion? They do say fashion is cyclical. Let’s hope so.

Do you love hats like I do? If so, what are your favorites? I’d love to hear about your hats.
