Baseball caps are logical summer headgear, but when an occasion calls for something more sophisticated, wide-brimmed hats are the popular choice.
This season features retro cloches and panamas, dainty pillbox crowns set on huge brims and large picture hats with snap-up or floppy brims. Colors, patterns and ornamentations range from the subtle to the flamboyant. There are brights (solid and two-toned, adorned with flowers or studding), neutrals (accessorized with scarves or leather ties) and large vintage floral fabrics in one-of-a-kind designs.
Wherever these functional and fashionable creations are worn, they're clearly headed for a long summer run.
