As seen on amazing A-listers, the floppy hat is forever in style.

“We like how this hat wavers between casual and cool, (Audrey) Hepburn or (Kate) Hudson.” – Black Book Magazine

Floppy hats have held sway recently over runways, taking its cue from carefree 1970’s style. As seen in Just Cavalli, Tracy Reese, Cynthia Steffe, Albino and Chris Benz’s shows a floppy brimmed hat promises to add a romantic flair to maxis, flares or shorts.

This year designers presented floppy brim hats made with denim (Just Cavalli) and felt (Tracy Reese) so keep it in mind please. Made with straw, a floppy brim hat is the ultimate beach accessory, that provides comfortable, chic protection from the sun. It’s universal: wear it to cover your face from the glare of the cameras, throw it on for the beach, to cover a bad hair day or simply to add some chic to your look!

Either with a grosgrain band to the top, a bow or just plain, floppy evokes romance and mystery. The hat has to be large, with a gently swaying soft brim that falls on cheeks.

I say “70’s style hat featuring a wide brim in an over sized floppy style”, I think: in particular. The Latina superstar is a celebrity who’s very into spring’s ’70s sensibilities. It’s no wonder why she was called “the floppy hat icon for this decade” by Eugenia Kim who designed the floppy hat J.Lo wore to the American Music Awards back in 2001.
