Not sure how I feel about the big floppy felt hats for fall and winter… It’s just a little too Mary Tyler Moore for me.
I’m not totally opposed to the hippie dippie look that Nicole Richie pulls it off with. I love jean shorts, a fringe vest, and boots topped off with a floppy hat at Coachella. Even Jenny from the block could occasionally pull it off.
What really turned me off was Kim Kardashian’s white ensemble with the white wide brimmed hat. It’s not that it’s white, I do adore white after labor day (I hate fashion rules). And don’t get me wrong, I love the Kardashian’s as much as the next girl and I’m all about keeping up with them. But it’s so overdone and it doesn’t seem to provide any purpose.
A sun hat I get, you are lame and you don’t want to get a fabulous glow. And a fedora, well I get that too; in the winter it can keep your blow-out from getting snowed on. Even a knit cap to keep your diamond studs from freezing over can be useful.
So, my advice is unless you’re on a yacht in St. Tropez keep the brim slim.
