Fashion/Floppy hat:

An old boyfriend once told me “I like women in hats. It makes them look smart.” I was never quite sure how to take that remark, but I know I took it to heart. I’ve boldly worn hats and fascinators to both casual gatherings and swanky soirees for years. At the very least,  it’s a conversation starter. But this year I’m pleased to report, hats are back big time and you and I won’t be the only ones wearing one. Not since the 1940’s have hats looked so good – and I’m not talking about pull over ski beanies. Specifically I’m talking about floppy brimmed hats. Rag & Bone carries a really snazzy series of floppy brim felt hats that are both “smart” and practical. Depending on the style,  you can choose from a rich pecan, navy or black. While the Rag & Bone hat is $195.00,  you can find cheaper versions of the floppy hat at Kate Spade, Urban Outfitters, and Nordstrom.  One of my favorites is the Nordstrom two-tone for just $48.00.  The hats are warm and double as an umbrella in light rain or snow. And it’s a good way to avoid too much exposure to the sun. Flop in anytime.

Though the stubborn New England weather clearly refuses to agree, we at styleboston are taking the Spring initiative ourselves and ushering in all the pastels you can stomach. We’ll start with a Tricolor Lipglass by M.A.C. that not only looks great on your lips, but looks damn pretty just sleeping in your makeup box. Inspiration comes in the strangest places. Weather, take note.
