The Hat Trick – Home Run – THE FLOPPY HAT

Initially portrayed as the hat of Odin, the almighty father of the gods in Norse mythology, was used as a symbol for magic characters as warlocks during the second half of the passed millennium.

But that is ancient history 🙂 . The floppy hat, or field hat, was used initially by mainly the working class because of its large brims that ensured a very good sun protection, but adopted afterwards other social classes.

The 70s were the time when the large brims of the floppy succeeded in taking their rightful place in fashion and remained a classic since. The versatility of this item makes it an ideal accessory for both good and bad weather and gives the liberty of personalizing it to ones needs.

In my opinion the floppy hat is a symbol of sensuality and sex appeal and goes perfectly with the feminine spirit.

As for the tips, you can wear it with:

[1] an overall, a maxi shirt dress or a wrap dress for the warm weather.

[2] a simple cut dress and a trench jacket.

[3] a simple pair of flared bootleg jeans, a blazer jacket and a oversized scarf.

[4] a pair of skinny jeans and a poncho.

As in the case of other hats, the floppy can be adapted easily by adding broaches, different ribbons on the crown.
