Generation of Sun-Shunners Wears Hats

Straw Fedoras from Hartford York Hats - Makins Summer Straw Fedora Hat for Men and WomenYounger people, especially women, have been raised to shun the sun. In addition to wearing baseball caps and visors for sports, they’re putting on newsboys and cabbie-style hats as well as oversized berets, says Deborah Rudinski of trend strategist firm Henry Doneger Associates.

I think I knew that. And I’d like to add something. (No comments from the peanut gallery, please).

With Johnny Depp and Justin Timberlake et al representing young men in hats, bad girl Britney Spears continues her very public love affair with fedoras (great look!) paired with short shorts and cowboy boots (*shudder*). The always classy Nicole Kidman is another celebrity often pictured shading her fair skin with broad brimmed sun hats.

We are indeed seeing the rebirth of the hat as an integral part of the wardrobe–but this time round, I think it won’t be as much as uniform as a joyful statement of individuality.

Make your statement!
