I love hats... a bit too much depending on who you ask. Pretty sure one of the first gifts I gave my husband was a hat. People say they are not hat people but what that means is two fold:
You haven't found a hat that you like enough
You don't like people looking at you/confidence
Generally it is true that wearing a hat brings/marks some attention but not as much as you would think. The best way to wear a hat is confidently. No matter how silly the hat, if you wear it like you're owning it no one will look twice but if you look like someone placed a dunce cap on your head, unsure expression and wrinkles of worry...
So I challenge you go out and find a hat, any hat and try it. There is so much about an outfit that can be forgiven if there is a hat. Pretty sure that you could wear the same outfit two days in a row and not many will notice. All attention is drawn to the hat, because it is unique. Not many people don hats, to be honest makes me a little sad.
Do you take the challenge? I'd love to see it if you do!
