Easter–Best Time For Hat Experiments

Straw Dress Hats and Fedoras - Men's Mr. Green Sewn Braid Hat - The Frank FedoraThe true hat-wearers among us don’t need excuses to wear hats on a daily basis. The Easter holidays, though, are a great opportunity to experiment with some of the fancier styles or patterns that might take us out of our comfort zone.

Easter is pretty much the last major holiday where buying a new hat or bonnet, and then showing it off, is still a widely practiced (albeit church-based) tradition. In case you don’t remember, getting a new Easter hat is part of the celebration of the end of Lent, a 40-day pre-Easter religious period of denial. For the observant, new hats and outfits became part of the symbolic rebirth.

For people who don’t regularly wear more than ballcaps, this time of year is perfect to try out a new type of hat. Not only is Easter a ready-made “excuse”, but you’ve also got that more urgent one: spring fever!
