Making a Statement: The Boater Hat

Nothing makes a statement better than a hat! In days of old, women wouldn’t consider appearing in public without a hat atop their head. Where have those days gone? We have slowly inched away from the things that make being a woman so absoutely fabulous. Dressing down is now the norm, but I say.. let’s get back to our roots. Take inspiration from your grandmother and her grandmother, and consider dressing up the way a lady should.
Spring is the perfect time to start, the days are warm and sunny and all you need is a sweet dress, sandals and a perfect new hat. One particular style that is so much fun is the boater hat – classic and boxy or lady like and floralized.
Wear your boater hat to the park for a stroll, to your neighbors BBQ or out to brunch. There are options galore, so start shopping the look at Urban Oufitters, a Hat Store or go vintage with Etsy and Ebay.
