Classy Hats...

...Chapeaux, Hüte, Chapéus, Hoeden, Cappelli, 
καπέλα, Kape, Sombreros...

Okay, guys! We all have accessories that we can’t live without: 
purses, shoes, scarves, jewelry...But then there are some 
articles that can be a bit more tricky... Hats!!! 
In the past, hats could be surprisingly complicated things, 
they come with etiquette so complex that people had to consult 
guides just to wear them.
Times change thankfully, and today, rules are less complex and 
more casual.
¡Bueno, gente! Todo tenemos accesorios sin los que no podemos 
vivir: bolsos, zapatos, bufandas,joyería...Pero algunos artículos 
pueden ser un poco más difíciles...¡¡¡Los Sombreros!!!
En el pasado, los sombreros podían resultar sorprendentemente 
complicados, conllevaban reglas de etiqueta tan complejas que 
la gente debía consultar manuales para usarlos...
Por suerte, los tiempos cambian, y hoy, las reglas son menos 
complicadas y más casuales...

So, if you want to make a big fashion splash with just one 
accessory? Wear a hat, you  will definitely be noticed!!!
Así que, si quieres llamar la atención con sólo un accesorio...
Usa un sombrero, ¡¡definitivamente, serás notada!!

If you want to give your outfit a rather laid back feel, then 
wear a Fedora...This classic hat, straw in summer, felt for 
fall and winter, is one of the trendiest looks out there...
Si quieres darle a tu vestuario un estilo desenfadado, entonces 
usa un Fedora...Este sombrero es un clásico, de paja en verano, 
de fieltro en otoño e invierno, crea uno de los estilos de mayor 
tendencia...

And, they look right with everything from dresses to jeans, 
from trousers to shorts...so don’t be afraid to wear one with 
almost anything.
Y, se ven bien con todo desde vestidos hasta tejanos, desde 
pantalones hasta shorts...así que no tengas miedo, puedes usar 
uno con casi cualquier cosa.
  

Panama hats.




But if you want to wear a hat to look striking in warm weathers, 
you must choose a Panama...
Pero si quieres usar un sombrero para verte para verte impactante 
en climas cálidos, debes elegir un Panamá...

Most hats provide some amount of sun protection, but only one hat 
"breathes" like a Panama. The bests Panama hats are woven of 
toquilla straw, grown in Ecuador. No other straw, no other fiber, 
no other man-made material "breathes" like toquilla. Period.
Muchos sombreros brindan cierto grado de protección solar, pero 
solo uno "respira" como un Panamá. Los mejores sombreros Panamá 
están fabricados con paja de toquilla, que crece en Ecuador. 
Ninguna otra paja, ninguna otra fibra, ningún otro material hecho 
por el hombre "respira" como la toquilla. Punto.

When wearing a Panama, your look turns effortless and chic...
Cuando usas un Panamá, tu estilo se vuelve relajado y elegante...

Like anything else, you get what you pay for. Depending on the 
hat maker and quality of construction of the hat, you could 
find yourself paying anywhere from $20 to several thousands of 
dollars.
Como con cualquier otra cosa, obtienes lo que pagas. Dependiendo 
del quién lo hace y la calidad de fabricación del sombrero, puedes 
llegar a pagar entre $20 y varios miles de dólares.

Oh! That's me, Inés...
The Panama is preferred for travel because its design allows it 
to return to its original shape after being folded in a suitcase.
El Panamá es el preferido para viajar porque está diseñado para 
volver a su formato original después de haber sido doblado en una 
maleta.


Sydney, thedaybookblog
Panama simply remind you of warm weather and the tropics, they 
are one of the more fun hats to wear by far!
El Panamá simplemente te hace pensar en climas cálidos y en los 
trópicos, ¡y son uno de los sombreros más divertidos de usar!



Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Anthony Hopkins)
Because when you  place one on your head ,you become cool, 
controlled and  intriguing. It’s all about attitude... 
Ok, maybe Dr. Lecter has too much attitude!!!...
Porque con solo colocarlo sobre tu cabeza, te ves relajado, 
controlado e misterioso. Y todo se centra en la actitud...
Bueno,¡¡¡a lo mejor el Dr. Lecter tiene demasiada actitud!!!


Hats are functional in keeping you warm in Winter or fresh 
in Summer, hiding a bad hair day, keeping you hidden in the 
crowd, or helping you standout. It’s up to you.
Los sombreros son funcionales porque te mantienen caliente 
en invierno o fresco en verano, disimulan un mal día de cabello, 
te ocultan o te destacan en una multitud. Depende de ti...
As to how to wear these hats, my only real advice is: Don’t 
think about it, just put it on!!! 
Y con respecto a cómo usar estos sombreros, mi único consejo es: 
¡¡¡No lo pienses tanto, solo póntelo!!!

Fedora or Panama hats designs will seamless meld into an 
established outfit while at the same time give it a added oomph 
that could transform the look into something unforgettable. 
Los sombreros Fedora o Panamás se adaptarán a el estilo que 
hayas elegido y al mismo tiempo le brindarán ese empuje que 
puede transformar tu tenida 
en inolvidable...


Why do we have to have a reason to wear hats? When 
I wear them, some people ask me why...Why not?
¿Porqué tenemos que tener un motivo para usar 
sombreros? Cuando yo los uso, algunas personas me preguntan porqué...¿Por qué no?


Kisses & hugs!
¡Besos & abrazos!

  3. Qué acertado el consejo! En vez de buscar ocasiones para usar o no un sombrero, simplemente pongámoslo en nuestra cabeza! Al menos a mí me encanta cómo lucen en invierno, junto a una linda bufanda o pañuelo... sombreros grandes, pequeños, vistosos o negros, me gustan todos!
    Gracias por la inspiración, un abrazo :)

  5. I love Panama hats - as you say they are stylish at any age. I especially love Jessica Alba's look with her neutral pashmina - effortlessly chic and of course yours with your white shirt - lovely. I used to wear one as part of my summer school uniform and that's maybe why I haven't worn one since...maybe I should get one!
