Ask Rosalee: Hats Off For Fashion

December 7, 2010

Dear Rosalee,

What do you think about hats? I would love to wear them, but I’m not sure if I can pull it off. Do you have any advice for me?

Thanks,

Julie, 43; Mount Horeb

Hi Julie,

Thanks for your question. I love wearing hats and yes, of course you can pull it off! Wearing the perfect hat starts with confidence. If you are not feeling confident in what you’re wearing, it will show in the way you carry yourself. I am a firm believer that if you feel like you look good, so will everyone else.

Many women shy away from hats because they can feel too bold. But it’s a shame, because a hat is a great fashion accessory that can pull together an outfit and improve its overall look. Hats are an extension of your personality. Start with a simple beret in a solid neutral color. This is a classic shape that looks good on everyone. And most of all, don’t be afraid to experiment! Stop into a local hat shop to try different shapes and colors to see what feels the best. Here are a few photos for inspiration:

I love turbans and red lipstick. It's a lot of look, but with confidence it works.

Here are a couple of local shops with a great selection of hats to try:

Sacred Feather | 417 State St., Madison; (608) 255-2071

E-Collectique | 234 E. Dekora St., Saukville; (262) 536-4537

Have confidence Dolls,  you are beautiful!
