Hi ALL , This is a quick no fuss tutorial to make a cheap and cheerful kimono out of 2 scarves....
The humble hat is one of the more eccentric accessories in a girls' wardrobe. Its not easy finding the perfect hat but there are plenty of styles to choose from. The straw fedora is ideal for summer and its a shape that suits most faces. I got a bargain straw fedora reduced to 5 euro in TK Maxx that was a life saver on my Ibiza trip. The perfect time to buy hats like this is at the end of the summer of course and save them for the following year. I invested in another fedora in Australia for 35 dollars and its made from raffia a palm which retains its shape so its ideal for shoving into the overpacked holiday suitcase. Felt fedoras are nice in the cooler weather and can be spruced up with a contrasting band or a feather.
Trucker caps are another summer staple although not as easy to pull off as other styles. The trucker cap is like the baseball cap but with a lot more attitude and the flatter peak is not always a winner for every face shape. Forever 21 have a variety of trucker caps at the moment perfect for keeping your face sheltered from the blazing Irish sun! Also if you are feeling creative this type of cap lends itself to all kinds of customising with any kind of jewels, embroidery, fabric markers or studs.
The old reliable beanie is an all year rouner. The beanie is cozy, comfortable, casual and can disguise a bad hair day perfectly what more could you ask of a hat. Beanies are a handy one for the handbag when you're not quite sure what the weather is going to be like (every day in Ireland).
From Russia with love comes the fur hat perfect for those chilly winter days! This head gear is not for maximum impact as it will not go unnoticed whenever you are stepping out. The fur hat is instant glamor and opulence and very much a luxury buy.
Oooh la la! If you're looking for somethingwith that 'je ne sais quoi' then the beret is for you. The beret is chic, sophisticated and very European. There is an old fashioned charm to the beret and it compliments any dressy ensemble.
The bowler is brave, bold and British and an excellent addition for an androgynous look.This vintage style hat creates cool whatever you team it with!Trendy-tough-cool fashionistas like Laura Whitmore and Fearne cotton are big fans of the bowler and keep it fun and feminine.
The 1920s cloche hat is very much a statement of girlish beauty and creates an elegant look. This cap means definite hat hair so its a bit of a commitment and also needs to be teamed with clothes that match that damsel vibe.
Last but by no means least my favourite type of hat...the cowboy hat/stetson! Pennys have very reasonably priced straw stetsons at the moment that will go with any holiday outfit as Elle MacPherson so kindly demonstrates!
