  1. I have a black cloche with a feather (but now my hair is long & it doesn't fit the same), I also have a Greek fisherman's hat (I bought it at a Greek festival), & I have a pink Fascinator hat with one single feather & for fun. I haven't worn them in a while….but I love your Tilby!!
    I'm from South Tx USA….my dad is a baseball cap kinda guy…my uncle wore both baseball caps & cowboy hats. My great uncle who was a pharmacist wore the mafia πŸ˜‰ & 1 of my grandfather's wore the newsboys hat. πŸ˜„πŸ˜πŸ˜ŽπŸ’–πŸ‘’πŸŽ©πŸ‘‘πŸŽ“

  2. In Australia, where it is very sunny, I wear hats with a brim – a straw fedora, or the style worn by Queen Elizabeth II usually made from light weight straws.

  3. I don't tend to wear hats because my head is big (both from the front and looking down) and it's quite hard to find one that fits properly. We had a summer hat as part of our school uniform and I had to get one that was didn't even stay on my head because of the space to the sides of my head inside the hat because their hats were too square for my head (even though they were already oval in shape). The only exception to my no hats rule is occasionally wearing a cap when I'm doing sports or going to the beach, and I find caps make my head look a little less big

  4. i have a so-called "hat head"… any hat suits me, but as I'm quite tall and suffer from Rosacea, I tend to prefer wide brimmed ones: cartwheel, capelines, or somme kind of cloche in Winter.
    Currently looking for the right city environment mid-season version, that would stand the rain, but also protect my face from sun, and not be too "beach-y" nor too warm (all my winter hats are wool or faux fur, and all the summer ones are big straw capelines that scream beach/holiday). Any suggestion that could go with a leather jacket as well as with a trench? (PS: I wear hats or hooded coats to protect me from rain because I HATE umbrellas. I need my hands free… and there's too much wind in my area, anyway)

  5. What about church hats? They are quite popular in the Protestant south east of the US, especially among Africa American women. In the Black church they are almost obligatory for Easter, but well dressed ladies (especially older women) will where them to church every Sunday.

  6. I love hats and have two i would like to wear out more, however as they dont cover my ears I generally get to cold for them most of the year so the season becomes very limited:( and then mid summer it is too warm for themXD

  7. Bonjour πŸ’—
    I love your videos!
    Very informative and interesting, I love hats especially when I have a bad hair day and don't have time to style my hair and to protect my head and face from the sun β˜€οΈ I wear hats on a daily basis even though it's not really trendy in where I live.
    Merci beaucoup and have a great weekend β˜˜οΈπŸ’

  8. I LOVE hats. I have a red felt riding hat which is so fun. Have at least 4 felt hats for winter and three straw for summer. Definitely my weakness. My favorites are the vintage hats I inherited from my grandmother and great aunt.
    Take a look at the hats in Japanese fashion, they are really pretty. South Korea and other Asian countries also have a lot of gorgeous sun hats (as well as hideous visors, they are very careful about protecting their skin from sun).

  9. Hi Justine! i love your videos <3 I'd like to buy a hat, but i wear glasses, and if I wear both, i look like if I've got too much stuff on my face. What do you think about it?

  10. Bumper brim hat. Millions of middle-aged and older church ladies still wear these every single sunday in America- probably parts of the Caribbean and the U.K. also. They have gone nowhere. ☺

  11. To all the people who are saying, "I wish it was in style so I could wear it." just wear it.Β  News Flash:Β  That's how things become 'in style.'Β  All you need is a little confidence…you'd be surprised how attractive that is all by itself.

  12. For a brief period of time, Walter White/Heisenberg in Breaking Bad brought back the pork pie hat! The hat was an iconic piece of the character – thought you might be pleased to know.

  13. It’s so funny she mentions fishermen’s hats being stylish in Europe when this video is 5 mos old and they’ve just now started trending in the US. Note to self: when I go to Europe buy everything and I’ll be ahead of the trends at home

  14. Hi, Justine,

    I'm enjoying all of your videos, and the timing for me finding them was perfect, as it is time to replace much of my wardrobe. I feel I will make better choices because of the information in your videos.

    My question related to hats is this. I have thin, curly hair, so I find that if I wear a hat, my hair looks terribly flat if I need to take it off. How do you recommend that we deal with "hat head" if we wish to wear hats?

  15. I enjoy wearing fun hats to the Renaissance Festival. I wear a feathered hat with a flat crown, flat sides and a shallow brim made of a black, shiny brocade with my black and white dress. With my purple costume I have a black and purple jester cap with three long, long dangling aspects of fabric that each end in a bell. I enjoy wearing both. I wear the feathered one to "normal" occasions as well. (I live in Ithaca, NY, USA.)

  16. Thank you so much for talking about hats. I am crazy about hats. It's my essential style. I wear beret, fedora, floppy hats, tribly, and some Indian hats like Himachali topi- Look this up. They're gorgeous and practical for the cold weather.

  17. I love Justine's videos!! She gets straight to the point, the content is explained well and in an intelligent way, and she smiles a lot! πŸ˜ƒ Echoing what others have mentioned, there are growing instances of older styles of hats in modern tv/performance/movie productions: Australia's akubra hat is iconic (although I don't recommend the one decorated with shark teeth as popularised by the Crocodile Dundee franchise), pork pie hats worn by the character Ray in Sex & The City and Heisenberg in Breaking Bad, ivy cap in Horton Hears A Who, burlesque performer Dita von Teese etc and many other examples out there.

    I am wondering though; in this video, if we're calling fascinators decoration instead, then what about visors e.g. the ones that some (mostly female) tennis and golf players still wear? Also those loose, thick knit caps – with or without stiff brim – that have become really easy to find in the last 10 years, and popularised as a great accessory for fall/winter streetwear. Would they be considered a hat?

  18. So dislike fascinators, just buy a hat!! lol Leaning towards fedora but loved the vagabond hat. If you ever watch "evil under the sun" watch for the hat worn by Jane Birkin near the end of the move….I love that hat and outfit.
    Oh yes, also you forgot to mention the top hat (very popular in the goth community).
