Yes, we know that men love curves. However, that pertains to hats as well. My Simply Elegant hat has been popular with men, as well as women. I recently met with a client to design a Kentucky Derby hat. Her boyfriend was present. His comment on seeing his girlfriend in a black Simply Elegant was “Wow, that’s a sexy hat”.
While the “sexy” comment hit me, I realized that men like the sensual curve of the hat. It is reminiscent of past times where ladies dressed as ladies, with large romantic hat shapes. Men love seeing women in hats, especially romantic ones.
The hat featured in the photo above, Violet Romance, is an ode to times past. It’s probably one of my favorite hats.
