Last weekend I was in Utah for gay pride and as I was having lunch with friends I noticed a pretty little girl sitting with her family wearing a very cute pink floppy hat paired with a little white purse, a white dress, shoes and shades, and then it hit me! Style doesn't have an age limit, you can start at any age and it can go on forever! Seeing this little girl made me want to talk about big floppy hats as a fashionable accessory.
This trend started back in the funky hippie 70's with iconic women like Brigitte Bardot and Faye Dunaway and it's still a chic accessory you can wear today! You can rock them on the beach or just to feel glamorous on a day out. Either way, it’s definitely a must-have accessory in your closet. What’s even better is that you can find this outfit enhancer in stores like Forever 21, Urban Outfitters and American Apparel, so ladies— you don’t have to break the bank to look good.
I personally own a collection of all types of big floppy hats in all colors. For a soft and sexy look, wear a brown or beige big floppy hat with denim skinnies, a neutral colored flowy top, and a fun pair of clunky espadrilles. For a hippy look, wear a long and beautiful white spaghetti strap or halter top summer dress with a white floppy hat, round sunnies, and a brown cross-body fringe bag! And voila!
At the end of the day, it’s all in how you wear it! No matter if it’s hot or cold outside, you can still rock your big floppy hat!
