Last Friday was a very happy and definitely not so casual Friday! Kick-off of the weekend of course but more importantly: a meet & greet with the one and only: Ella a.k.a. Miss Victory Violet!
When it comes to retro fashion I am a big fan of certain accessories. Today I want to shine some light on (mini) hats. I love them for several reasons, but here is a list of 5 reasons why (mini) hats should make a comeback in everyday fashion:
1. Instant Rainproof
A big floppy hat is perfect for those rainy days. And we have a lot of those in the Netherlands. Besides that, it also gives a little bit of protection to your styled hair. Not always applicable if you have long hair by the way. So I usually tuck my hair in my coat during winter days. Of course wind is definitely not a hat’s friend. So in that case, buy a hat that isn’t gone with the wind in a few seconds.
I have to admit it. I like big earrings and I cannot lie. Next to the classic pearls, big earrings are my best friends when it comes to my favorite modern vintage accessories. I do like them a little bit different. For a typical oriental meets retro look, I often use Indian style earrings. You may have seen some examples in my blog post about my Oriental meets Retro looks.
However, Indian earrings are often heavy, not very wearable for more than a few hours and most importantly: they have ripped more scarves than I can count. So I leave those for the Spring and Summer days.
