Trend Report: Hats


Who would guess in the 1950-ies that by the beginning of the XXI century hats would be basically an extinct specious of clothing. Only recently the word "hat" meant solely a piece of clothing keeping your head warm. Think: babies' hats, green foresters' hats, Russian fur hats. However a hope for hats finally rose somewhere on the fashion horizon. 
In the October issue of British Vogue the "Hat Trick" article by Catherine St Germans recollects what's happened with once to be an integral part of any outfit - hats. I like the notice of the author that nowadays probably nobody would be able to say what's his or her hat size, meanwhile a shoe size could be revealed without a second of hesitation. Probably hats were dismissed during the 60-ies when social standards were changing proportionally fast with the growth of the popularity of voluminous hair. By the end of the decade hats were seen only on top of the royal heads or during a Halloween party. And yet something brought hats back. Was it really Marc Jacobs who put a hat on each and every model both at LV A/W 12 and Marc Jacobs A/W 12 shows? Or was it Lady Gaga or Anna Dello Russo who were spotted more and more often wearing a head-piece? Or maybe people simply got tired of an exposed body and finally wanted to cover their naked self... Hats are in direct association with ladies and gentlemen, good manners and stability (both financial and moral). I assume leaving a hat on or, ok, putting a hat on enables us to feel better, nicer about ourselves, more polite and sophisticated, more aristocratic in a sense. I would thank not Marc Jacobs or Anna Dello Russo but the society luring into the stability of the past for bringing hats back. 
As for me I couldn't be happier with hats finding their way back to our heads.

  3. Мне очень понравилось!!!
    А я вот все не могу решиться на приобретение такой детали гардероба...Все хожу и меряю только. В магазинах чувствую себя отлично, но как представляю на улицах города...как-то откладываю...

  9. To be honest, I am not sure it was Marc. It felt more like Gucci last year when it all came out... Anyway... When it comes to hats, I don't really go with the trend. I wear hats because I like them and I do wear them a lot... :) Plus I hate umbrellas and hoods, so hat makes such a wonderful replacement. :)

  10. hey, Alexandra! the first photo of you is gorgeous! I like the eye make-up ;) and the orange hat is beautiful as well. so is the faux leopard one, very unique! and I will definitely take out my hats when it gets cold enough (though I would be happy when it stayed warm forever, hehe).

  13. The hat looks great on you. Love the colors! I had a phase where I had to wear a headband or beanie lest I feel naked, so I can see myself getting addicted to this trend=]

  34. Love hats, they give any look a charming and chic point of view, but is true that Valencia is more or less warm even in Winter and I rarerlly use them, but I wear them a lot during the Summer, perfect for the beach.
