Vintage Vixen: Jaunty Hats

I love Kate Middleton. Lately with all the media attention surrounding the engagement, I've been able to fully appreciate her style. Subsequently, I've become obsessed with hats! She does it all- big brims, small brims, berets- and my feature today: light, jaunty hats with feathers and netting, or small hats that don't have a brim at all, but they definitely add a dimension of class and style to any outfit. In one of every five photos of Miss Middleton she is wearing a cute hat, cocked to the side, looking so chic! Too few young women wear hats. Often we fear they might fall into the category of looking like a costume, so we veer away from all but the necessary and useful winter hat. I want to change that! We might not all be future princesses, but we can stand proud and enjoy wearing a fashionable hat! Kate, thank you for the inspiration.
