Remember the days of yore when a woman wouldn’t be caught dead outside of her house without a hat? There’s something about a floppy, wide brimmed chapeau that harkens to the bold yet outrageously feminine appeal of Dior’s “New Look” from back in the day, while also calling to mind the carefree comfort and simplicity of the summer months. Floppy hats are an excellent way to add a touch of whimsy (without being girlish) to your ensemble and a timeless way to celebrate summer while still maintaining a delightfully business casual look.
