1. This beach hat perfect for blocking out the sun, while camouflaging with the sand all at the same time. Time to finally tan in peace…and style. This poly-braid hat is durable and even comes with a grosgrain sweatband inside. Check it out!


2. For those who don’t want a beach hat that grabs all the attention, but still protects you from the sun, I give you a women’s straw hat! If you like the look of plain straw hats, this is the hat for you. It’s sturdy and crushable, which you don’t find in your average straw hat!

Really, this hat is a bargain since it can double for a traveling hat. Check it out!

4. Christine A. Moore Millinery hats make for some super-stylish beach hats! Made of durable panama, this hat is ideal for the beach. If your luck is as good as mine, it will rain the moment you get settled in at the beach. If so, you’re in luck: this beach hat is made of panama, which is resistant to light rain (and splashes from the ocean). Check it out!

5. Here comes the brimless beach hats. Tired of those brims getting in the way of your view of the ocean? Try out this cotton bucket hat. Style without the brim, you’ll be ready for running along the beach without it flying away. Made of 100% cotton, it’s lightweight and has a fashionable rope band. Check it out!

The Fedora: A Fashion Statement

fedora-hat-1

Every generation has its own unique sense of style, and in recent years, there hasn’t been a larger fashion statement then fedoras. These simple hats have made quite a stir in the fashion industry. We, the consumers, see celebrities wearing fedoras all the time, and this once thought formal masculine head wear has been transformed into a very unique item of any wardrobe.

Fedora hats were born in the late 1800’s, as a fashion accessory to depict the upper class. The fedoras popularity soared as it was prominently featured throughout 1940’s cinema as it adorned the heads of movie’s most famous detectives and gangsters. The fedora is still continuing to grow in popularity as a greater variety of styles are introduced, allowing for a plethora of options for selecting that perfect outfit.

The fedora represents the sheer elegance of class, style, and sophistication, and as the fedora became a unisex fashion, men and women can enjoy it at the same time. Whether you are looking for a light summer hat, a dress hat, or a casual hat, there are several tips that both men and women should take into consideration before selecting and wearing a fedora.

  • Plan out when you’ll wear it. Fedoras used to be strictly formal head wear for men, but recent style trends dictate that both men and women can wear them with formal or casual attire. The same fedora may work for both looks, but if you intend to use it for multiple outfits, keep that in mind when you go shopping. Also, decide whether you will wear the fedora as a summer hat or a more formal dress hat – or you can just get one for every occasion!
  • Pick a color and material. The setting and clothes you wear determine the type of fedora most appropriate.
  • For daytime and summer settings, a straw fedora would be the best option because it is a lighter material and allows the breeze through.
  • For evening or colder settings, a dark felt or twill fedora would best suit your needs.
  • If you plan on wearing your fedora with a suit, make sure you match the color of the hat to the color of the suit. If you tend to wear black or gray suits, choose a black or gray fedora. Similarly, if you wear brown suits, stick with a brown fedora.
  • Choose a proper fit. The hat should fit snugly, but not so snugly that it leaves a red mark on your skin. Remember, a properly fitted hat should rest approximately a finger’s width above your eyebrows and ears.
  • Keep the back brim of your fedora tilted up. The front brim can either be tilted up or left straight.

If you are looking for something to freshen up your wardrobe, a fedora hat might be just the thing for you, and here at Hats in the Belfry, we offer many varieties of fedoras for men and women.
