When I first started blogging, I had an unhealthy obsession with fedoras. I was traveling to and from San Francisco pretty frequently and on one of my trips discovered Goorin Brothers for the first time. I was intrigued and loved how you could add a quick little something easily to an outfit and really change the overall look. However, I found out really fast that they’re a pain to travel with and I also found my tastes changing and now hate almost every single fedora I own (my count is at 8).
It wasn’t until recently that I started seeing a new kind of fedora re-surface that has a wider, floppier brim. I have both fedoras and floppy brim hats, but never one that was a combination of both. The result? Amazing. It softens the look of the hat and I think frames the face shape in a more flattering way (for me at least) and has a little more structure than a traditional floppy hat with just a round top. I have spent so much time hat stalking lately I thought I would share some of my favorites with you guys. What do you think? Willing to try out a floppy fedora?
