I love felt hats. They are the perfect accessory for a wide variety of looks, and help cover up the snarls of hair left by too much fun on a windy day. I was going through photos that Jason Sexton took of me a couple of months ago and found two shots demonstrating different ways to style a floppy hat.The first one is an easy bohemian look, and the second is a more refined and glamorous ensemble. The key to both get-ups is that they are paired with pieces that mimic the volume and shape of the hat. The first look has a top with sleeves that have a slight bell shape as well as a handkerchief dress that adds volume. The second look, although paired with a form-fitting top, has a full mini skirt which flairs out in a similar way.
As long as at least one of the other elements in your outfit balances the shape of a floppy hat, it's a surefire way to ramp up your look!
