Hats on TV and on Celebrities 1

According to the One Show last night, hats are back in fashion!  They did a little section on the hat industry and the fact that sales have been up by 30% over the last few years.  According to the BBC Magazine, it is younger men (between 14 & 25) that are keeping hat-wearing alive.  Then again, it seems that more and more celebrities are appearing in public wearing hats of various shapes and sizes … from movie stars to royalty, hats are both popular and fashionable again!

As I have said before, I enjoy wearing hats and grab one on the way out of the house everytime I leave.  Just this last weekend, I purchased my newest hat – a straw trilby/fedora from M&S – for summer.  Something a little nicer than a ball cap but cooler (temperature-wise, that is) than my flat caps, especially the wool one (in Rob Roy tartan).  Unfortunately, the trend over the last 100 years towards casual wear has meant that I have fewer opportunities to wear my suit and fedora … then again, it does give me a chance to wear a wider variety of hats!

But, I digress … on Monday, the Celebrity Hat Wearers of the Year were announced, with the list being topped by Hugh Jackman and Carla Bruni-Sarkozy (wife of the French President).
