Every time I go to my grandfather's house, I try to steal one of his hats. Say what you will about Poppie (that he's adorable, charming, wonderful, a keen business man with the spirit of a hustler and a knack for the ponies…), but one indisputable fact is that man's got style. Donned in tweed vests, sport jackets, camel hair coats, and derby caps, he can mix prints, coordinate textiles, and-- most importantly of all-- the man knows what to do with an accessory.
At 88 years old, Poppie may have short term memory loss, but he always remembers that I can't have that hat because he wears it when he's "feeling nautical." (That's a direct quote, and a valid point which I totally respect. Personally, when I'm feeling nautical, I wear The Sailor's Knot bracelet set.) So, rather than robbing my grandfather, I turned to Etsy to help me replicate to the look of my old-man style icon.
Menswear is so hot right now (spoiler alert, it's so hot every fall/ winter) and you can totally pull off these menswear hats, Madam.
If your personal style's more old-Hollywood-siren than old-man-chic, High Hat Couture has an awesome selection of glamourous vintage hats, as well as retro accessories and apparel for silver screen stars and off-screen starlettes.
