With the recent passing of Memorial Day weekend, we’re reminded that summer is looming right around the corner; and you don’t want to hit the beach or soak in the sun’s rays without this trend- the floppy hat. These types of hats come in all different colors, textures, and styles and definitely add a feminine vibe to any girls wardrobe. Floppy hats date back to the days of “Old Hollywood”, but are still popular today and add the perfect touch in completing a summer look. They’re a good way to protect your head and face from sunburn while looking stylish and sophisticated at the same time.
Floppy hats are popular around Hollywood too, celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Vanessa Hudgens, and Jennifer Lopez have been spotted wearing them.
A fancier and more elegant version of the “floppy hat” is worn at the world-renowned Kentucky Derby, a horse race boasting an audience of over 150,000 people each year, with audience members including celebrities, politicians, and members of royal families. A tradition at the Kentucky Derby is the Derby Hat parade, in which the people in attendance show off their stylish hats, similar to the floppy hat- but with a lot more pizzaz (like pictured below; Kim Kardashian at the Kentucky Derby).
Whether you’re going to the Kentucky Derby or just hitting the pool or local beach, you are sure to look stylish and chic sporting a floppy hat!
