How to wear: Hats & Fascinators

Today I am happy to be collaborating with Patricia (or Tea) of whatmamawear.blogspot.ca to bring you a “How 2 Wear” hats and fascinators. I love how Tea styled her fascinator hat with her laced pink top bringing out the lovely features of her face and beaming smile through the bright vibrant colors. I love how her look can be worn to church, Easter parties, bridal or baby showers or to tea parties. Go to Tea’s page here to see how she styled her fascinator hat.

With spring weather upon us I have become quite the hat wearing lady as I somehow gravitate toward hats in the springtime. With Easter weekend coming up I know I will definitely be wearing my hats to egg hunts, church and to other events; however today I wanted to  show you how to style a hat to create a Boho vibe using an aztec patterm printed maxi skirt, black top, pendant necklace and cognac ankle boots.

To give the feel for a traveling bohemian I went with a patterned maxi skirt and cognac ankle booties.  I am sure this look would have been equally as fun with flared harem pants, flared pants or even skinny jeans but I went with what I wore that day to church instead and just added the ankle boots and hat for a more relaxed look.

Some of you may be wondering not only how to create a similar look but also where to even wear a hat or outfit like this to stand out and make a statement. Here are some fun options: music festivals, countryside walks, carnival, etc. The options for styling this hat for a boho feel are limitless and so are the places you can wear it too.

If you wear hats, how do you like to style your hats?

Want to see how else I have styled a hat for spring time:
