Trendspotting: Floppy Hats
One of this fall’s most noticeable trends is the oversized floppy hat. Previously worn by famous silver-screen stars Sophia Lauren, Hedy Lamarr, and Marilyn Monroe, this nifty bohemian accessory has recently been sported atop the well-groomed tresses of contemporary celebrities Jennifer Lopez and Kim Cattrall. Likewise, an overwhelming number of Chictopia users have been similarly embracing this quirky trend.
Mel_oOo goes for an exotic vibe by pairing her svelte black hat with a black and yellow printed maxi dress. She makes this outfit even more mult-cultural by adding a stack of giant wooden bangles and beaded bracelets. Black gladiator sandals and a matching wrapped sash finish off this distinctive look.

K_Isa_bella works the bohemian spirit of her rosette-adorned beige topper into the rest of her outfit with a draped brown scarf and fringed leather bag. She creativley pairs these tougher pieces with a tea party-chic lace top, complete with classic denim skinnies and brown platform wedges.

alyssacesoir utilizes her simple chocolate-brown hat as a backdrop for some serious fashion color play. Her coral button-down blouse and pastel floral shorts zing with her giant silver and turquoise jewelry. She pulls the look together with neutral brown wedge sandals and delicate white bobby socks.
HollyAshley deftly combines the 70’s aspect of her woven ivory topper with several additional vintage decade elements. Her fierce leopard print skirt and leather oxfords emulate the styles of the 50’s, while her sheer ruffled blouse harkens to fashions of the Victorian era. She keeps her outfit streamlined with a coordinating neutral color scheme.
mousevoxvintage compliments her pretty golden hat with an equally feminine dress. The fuscia, turquoise, and golden colors of her floral-print frock simultaneously coordinate and contrast with the hue of her hat. No fancy furbelows for this natural beauty: her soft, honey-colored curls are the best possible asset to this look.
As we can see from these five lovely Chictopians, floppy hats can work wonders upon an outfit, no matter your personal style preferences. Their chameleon-like quality makes these whimsical toppers something that we should all have!
