Can we talk fedoras for a minute?
Every summer I try to avoid them, because I’m not Justin Timberlake, and sometimes I feel like he’s the only person who can legitimately pull them off.
But some fedoras are really cute.
Really, really cute.
I spotted this one at a Kate Spade store last May and struggled, unsuccessfully, for weeks to erase it from my Lust List, only to eventually give in after employing every excuse in the book.
- “I need a hat to protect my hair color!”
- “I’m going on vacation!”
- “It’s my birthday month!”
- “There’s a bow on it!”
Honestly, though, this hat is awesome. It’s the pinnacle of summery straw hat fedoras in that it’s not only super cute, but it’s also packable, which means that you can store it flat in your bag or luggage, and then when you unpack it at your destination, it pops back into shape.
The neutral colors also go with everything, and hello! — THERE’S A BOW ON IT.
The Kate Spade Packable Straw Fedora is a little difficult to track down right now online (it appears to be sold out, boo!), but they may have it at your neighborhood Kate Spade store.
Sometimes it’s worth going to the store just to see if you can snag a sweet discount. I got this one for 15% off because it was the last hat available, and it happened to be on a mannequin. I told the sales associate that I was hoping to get a “fresh hat from the back” (yes, I used those exact words, LOL!), but the only one they had was the floor model, so to speak. So she cut me a break on the price (thank you, whoever you are!). 🙂
