Hats have been around for a long time. Although their usage was for protection and functionality mostly, people over the course of time realised the sartorial importance of it. They have the power to up the ante of an outfit and add elegance to a look in a jiffy. Fashion’s most powerful ladies have given their stamp of approval to the trend. Think Queen Elizabeth, Princess Diana to the leading ladies of India like Sonam Kapoor Ahuja and Priyanka Chopra Jonas.
What’s more, sporting a hat is a guaranteed way of standing out in the crowd. While other kinds of accessories do make an outfit look more stylish, a hat has the ability to turn heads without much effort. Of all the numerous options of hats, there are, we have rounded up 7 must-have pieces.
Ahead, we give you a list of 5 hats you should have in your accessory wardrobe:1. Beret
Berets are a widely loved type of hats and have their origins in France and Spain. Fuss-free and effortlessly chic is the best way to describe them. They were first a part of the military uniform but have now made their way into every blogger to celebrity’s accessory repertoire. Berets are soft caps with a rounded, flat crown.
Fedora hats add a quirky touch to an outfit given their edgy yet playful shape. Celebrities quite often are spotted wearing them with pantsuits or other kinds of formal-wear. The name of the hat can be credited to dramatist Victorien Sardou, Fédora who wore this hat during his play. Fedoras are soft-brimmed hats that have a creased centre.
3. Floppy hats
As the name suggests, floppy hats don’t have a sturdy brim and can acquire any shape. And the fact that they can take on any fluid shape just makes them look ultra classy. Best to sport these hats flowy, Bohemian outfits at sundowners. Floppy hats were first used for protection until fashion connoisseurs like Coco Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent made them into a fashionable accessory.
Boater hats became a popular fashion accessory in the 19th century and were mostly donned by men. The name stems from the fact that these hats were mostly used by men while sailing or boating. However, as fashion is constantly freed from gender stereotypes, the boater was quick to be adopted by women as well. Love that they add a poised touch to an outfit.
Bucket hats were literally my go-to fashion accessory as a child. They protect your hair from the sun, are your best friends on bad hair days and in my personal opinion, always make you look more friendly and adorable. Initially, their use was purely functional with Irish farmers wearing them while farming to protect them from the rain. However, they soon became a fashion trend and have been worn by many celebrities globally.
