|Moi. Straight-up diva, yo. (Got the hat at Dillard's!)|
1) We already love them for occasions.
The Kentucky Derby. Easter. Fancy-dress parties. People freakin' love hats. People are just so far in the closet about their love of hats, they can probably see Narnia.
|MY GOD YES.|
|Isabella, the ultimate hat-wearing diva of our time.|
2) Why should the trilby wearing douchebros have all the fun?
Gentlemen, I submit to you a small collection of acceptable, sexy, non-douchey (unless the wearer is a douche) manly fedora-ish hats:
|Vintage 1960s porkpie, Etsy seller TheLonelySock|
Tommy Bahama braided paper fedora
Tommy Bahama Golf palm fiber fedora
3) They make the "what am I going to do with my hair?" question moot.
Because who's going to be looking at your hair when you're wearing THIS delightful confection!

4)Nobody rocks a hat like a elderly Black gentleman, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't try to emulate.
I rest my case:
|Morgan, you sexy devil.|
5) The sun ages you! Keep it off with style!
6) Browsing and buying a unique hat is a great way to support small businesses.
Here are just a few of the amazing purveyors on Etsy:
emilliner (Emily is local to Indianapolis, by the way! I've met her! She's glorious!)
Hat-timid? Try a fascinator, a cloche, or a simple beanie/skullcap. Perhaps even a turban. Or a different turban.

Gentlemen: to try a brimmed hat, but afraid of looking like a douche? Go for a true fedora or a derby, rather than a trilby (Their brims are bigger, and they're usually accented with a little feather.) Or try a porkpie, top hat, or bowler. Or the standard driving hat, which is also generally a winner.

Or why not a cowboy hat? Why NOT a cowboy hat?
