Before, I would only see a felt hat when I am watching an Indiana Jones movie, starring Harrison Ford but now, they are everywhere! When I say everywhere – in men and women. I wasn’t sure if this was because of the re-runs being shown on cable but this I think have started the phenomenon.
However, the phenomenon has struck the women more rather than men. You will see women wearing this hat almost anywhere, even in places where there is no sunlight (i.e. the mall).
I have also seen a lot of celebrities wearing this hat paired off with their big sunglasses to avoid the paparazzi, I guess. So if you have a set of paparazzi, you can definitely wear this as a cover-up or at least to buy you time to think of what you need to say when they caught you in an area or place that is not your ‘district’.
Kidding aside, the felt hats do add extra fashion points when put together properly. On the photo above with Charlize Theron, she looked relaxed with her hat and paired it off with just a blazer, white shirt and gray pants. She didn’t have to exert a lot of effort on the hair department because that it what the hat did for her.
Getting a hat is like a shoe, you need to make sure that it fits your head properly or else you will end up either picking up the hat because it is being blown by the wind or you keep pushing it up because it gets into your eyes.
For some attention grabbing felt hats, you can check out this Resultly right here. I like the Armani felt hat.
It is narrow brimmed and seems to fit well in my head. Usually with this type of hat, it kind of exudes a manly appeal so if you are being conservative about this, you can wear it with just a plain top (any color would do) and a pair of jeans. You can add up a blazer or a vest to complete the look. Since it’s a casual look, you can dazzle up by painting your eyelids with the eye shadow that will complement the hat. For this, it will be a smoky gray color.
Now, if you wish to explore or incorporate this on a fun, flirty manner, you can wear it with a short dress and flats (sandals or ballet shoes). The hat will work as an accessory. Since you are in a dress, you can pair it off with a string of pearls or gold plated necklace.
You can share this fashion accessory with your man to level up his machismo. I bet he will have heads turning once this is worn so make sure he only wears it when you are in your room. LOL!
Just kidding but I think the hat does add a bit of mysteriousness in a man and with a woman too.
Now, this will be a wonderful experiment to try, don’t you think?
