A Matter of Hats

So, hats…we all want to wear them but very few people actually do? What a tragedy! The other day I was talking to someone about what I consider to be the two most under-rated and under-used accessories right now: scarves & hats. And when I say scarves I don’t mean wooly winter wraps…I mean delicate, patterned silk scarves, the kind you wear on your head, neck or draped around your shoulders. It was only a few weeks ago that I pointed out the potential of this lovely item. And regarding hats…again, I’m not referring to a cold weather knit cap. I mean…well, here’s what I mean. See for your self…
