From the Runway: Straw Hats

From wide-brimmed and floppy to trim and prim, straw hats graced Spring and Resort 2011 runways:

Trina Turk (Spring)

Marc Jacobs (Spring)

Chanel (Resort)

My mother-in-law handed down to me a wonderfully wide-brimmed and floppy hat just in time for end-of-summer socials.

Maybe you have a brand new hat, but if you have a hand-me-down hat, one bought from a thrift store, or one shoved in the back of your closet, pull it out!  It’s time for a quick remodel.

If your hat, like mine, needs a new ribbon, you can find one in your house or pick up an inexpensive one at a fabric store.  I had just enough length left of a gold organdy ribbon to tie around my hat.

Perfect for a Labor Day party this weekend!

Did you remodel a hat for the summer?  What would you wear with a straw hat?
