Here at the Fashion Police we’re not averse to a good hat. Being fans of ladylike fashion, we’re in favour of the trend for year-round headwear – as long as it’s not of the woodland animal persuasion – and it’s impossible to argue with anything that offers serious protection from the dangers of the high summer sun.
The beauty of this summer’s milinery is that the choice of hat is entirely in your hands. You can choose a trilby or a fedora to indulge your masculine side. You can wear a wide-brimmed straw hat and over-sized sunglasses to channel your inner starlet. You can go for a cute cloche, flapper style, or a boater for the preppy vibe… In other words, you can choose the style that suits you best!
