Hat Style according to Dior

I’ve been thinking about an important question lately: ¬†Should one wear a hat or not? If so, how do I style a hat? I’ve looked up advice from no other than Monsieur Christian Dior himself, in my “Little Dictionary of Fashion”. Here’s his take on the hat:

“I think that in town you cannot be really dressed without a hat. It is really the completion of your outfit an in another way, it is very often the best way to show your personality. It is easier to express yourself sometimes with your hat than with your clothes.
A hat can make you gay, serious, dignified, happy – or sometimes ugly, if you don’t choose it well!”

When the book was published, in 1954, a hat was a must to complete an outfit. These days, wearing a hat is no longer customary. I wouldn’t wear a hat on my way to work, the styling is too complicated. London Fashion Week however is the perfect occasion to wear a hat. I had so much fun wearing my pop blue coloured chapeau by BCBG. It instanlty lifted my whole outfit.
