Guest Post: Put a Hat on it!

Hello all; Kristian from Never Fully Dressed (Without a Style), taking over Ilana's blog for the day (Thanks for having me, Ilana)!

If you are all reading Modern Vintage, I'm going to go out on a limb and say, you like vintage. And you like seeing how Ilana (and others) remix it into a modern wardrobe or look. One of the best tricks to achieving that sort of look yourself? One word- Hats!

Once upon a time, it used to be par for the course that ladies wore hats. Unthinkable not to. Who knows now why they ever went out of style (the eighties' love of big hair?), but hats have a timeless feel that elevate your look into something that can be both modern and just a bit vintage too. The other great thing is, if you pick ones in neutral colors, hats can be some of your most versatile items in the closet. A woman can be a totally different person with just the switch a hat, whether she communicates an air of Joie d'vivre with a summery boater hat, a spirit of adventure in a man's bowler, or a feeling coziness in something knitted and warm. So here are several of my favorite hats.
