Wear a Hat. Does anyone still wear a hat ?

Wear a hat

Wear a hat or not. I like to think that the hat is still a worthwhile accessory. Lots of the runway shows for Spring/Summer 2015 show hats as part of their collections. With global warming and the warnings about sunscreen a hat seems like a worth while investment. Hats were always a part of both a woman’s and mans attire right up to the 1960’s. No outfit was considered complete without a hat

.As times have changed and our tastes have become more individual it is no longer expected that a woman wear a hat . In certain social circles and for certain events a hat is still considered required attire.So this summer if you attend the christening of the new Royal Baby wear a hat. If you attend a society wedding it will be expected that you don an appropriate hat. As for the rest of us , it may take a special talent to weed your way through choosing a hat from what’s available this year . Therefore let me be your guide to help  you choose the that works for you.Here are the top 3 trends for spring / summer 2015.
