In America, bonnets and hats on babies and toddlers are expected, and is even considered cute. However, once you've got your sea legs, unless you’re at the beach, most people think it’s weird to be wearing a hat.
Personally I think hats are an awesome way to express your individuality. Who wants to look like everybody else anyway?
Hats are a great conversation starter. Through the years, I’ve had many women talk to me about my hats and why they do or don’t wear hats of their own.
There are a lot of notions about wearing hats that American women have that just aren’t true. I want to dispel these anti-hat myths and help women find the right hat for them.
I like the Victorian hats you have featured. This is going on my new Victorian hats board.
Thank you! I never thought of hats as inspirational!
AbbyFitz, Hats certainly can convey a lot about their wearers! Your lifelong devotion to hats is inspirational.
Yes, I am jealous when I see pictures from Great Britain
I love to see the beautiful hats worn by fancy ladies - like the Queen! I agree that it would be nice to see them be worn more often by Americans.
There's one out there for you. It'll sneak up mo you when you least expect it :)
Unfortunately I've never found a hat that suits my face shape. Am still looking...
Thank you! I'm glad you liked it.
Fantastic article Abby! I am so glad you published this. The large brimmed hats take me to the days of Edith Head, the famous American fashion designer and also remind me of all the church ladies when I was growing up.. The beanie hats take me back to my days at the University of Miami.
By the way, you sport hats quite nicely! If I were in your family, I would have waited each day to see what you'd be wearing on your head when you came out of your bedroom. :)
