Great News Video on the Rise of Hats in Fashion
This is a great video piece done by an LA news channel on the rise of hats as a fashion statement. They visit a couple hat shops in LA and show unique hats from flat hats (cadet cap, newsboy hat, ivy cap, driving cap) to cloche hats to fur or coonskin caps to the ever-so-popular stingy brimmed fedora. Watch closely and you can catch Jon Hamm (Mad Men, The Town) wearing a driving cap. I’m used to seeing him in the classy fedoras, but he pulls off the look of the flat cap as well.
My favorite line from the video is the hat advice, “For women, as the days get shorter, the brim should get smaller.” A great piece of practical fashion advice. Notice the switch from the wide brimmed sun hat to the cloche hat. And if you aren’t brazen enough to wear a cloche, there are tons of cute beanies out there for you ladies, as well!
Another great line from the piece: “You know, you have bad hair days, and you’ve got to wear a hat!” Be prepared for a bad hair day with a great looking hat!
