The opposite day, I requested a query on Instagram: ‘Are you a hat individual?’ Surprisingly, most individuals made the identical confession: “I like hats,” wrote New Englander Cheryl Sparks, “However I at all times really feel so conspicuous.”
I get it, hats are intimidating. But I’ve a principle: If you’d like be a hat individual, you will be. You don’t want a sure sized head or the ‘persona’ we typically assume hat individuals have (They’re creative! They’re outgoing! They don’t thoughts standing out!). You simply need to imagine you’re a hat individual.
In any case, Cup of Jo reader Madison stated she at all times admired hat individuals however then had an epiphany: “Sooner or later, I simply determined to turn out to be one. When you put on hats often, others begin believing you’re a hat individual, too.”
If you wish to make the soar, listed here are 5 hats to mess around with:
Baseball Cap The baseball cap is a gateway hat. Most individuals begin carrying it to cowl untamed hair whereas working errands. However then they catch themselves carrying one to fulfill buddies on the park. And shortly they’re questioning how it will look with a silk slip gown, even when their hair is freshly dried. You’ll be able to take the connection to the following stage with a slogan cap: I put on the same one, and this one-liner made me giggle. Or, for those who’d favor no catchphrase, this pastel quantity would go together with every little thing.
Straw Hat A straw hat is one other glorious newbie model as a result of it’s sensible (hi there, solar safety) however brings character. At any time when I put on a floppy one, I really feel like I needs to be cruising down Freeway 1, admiring Large Sur’s cliffs and crashing waves.
Fisherman Cap This fisherman cap offers face shade, however let’s be actual, I don’t put on it for solar safety. I put on it as a result of it makes me really feel like a JLo backup dancer. You’ll be able to pair this with a black turtleneck and houndstooth mini skirt for a Solely Murders within the Constructing vibe. Or for a extra relaxed really feel, put on this olive quantity with a white T-shirt and denims.
Bucket Hat The primary time I wore this bucket hat, my pal Angela laughed out loud. However I understood. Bucket hats will not be designed to look good. Their revival is a playful pattern, and I’m going to lean in onerous on this 90’s-inspired style second. In case you’ve been itching to experiment with a bucket, this understated model would go together with any outfit, and for those who favor prints, how candy are these?
Beret “Why are you posing like that? You’re so goofy!” my husband Max laughed when he took the picture above. Clearly, I’m not 100% assured carrying berets, but this winter I’m decided to faux it til I make it. In case you’ve already mastered carrying these cuties, 1) I’m actually jealous and a pair of) please share your styling suggestions. Ideally I’ll look extra Parisian than Griswold. I’d love to include a beret into my on a regular basis winter uniform. And the way fairly is this coloration?
