Hats On

My hat was pulled down and this girl said 'Are you really him?' I whispered 'Yeah, I'm really him.' She screamed, 'Mom! Dad! It's Heath Ledger!

-Josh Hartnett

That was a good one. Jokes apart, I keep wondering why girls don’t wear hats in India. After all, Its hot like crazy these days.

As much as I try not to do it, I end up giving you all a history of several items of clothing and accessories. At times I do think if it serves any purpose. There must be some kind of dormant teacher inside me.

In the past, hats were an indicator of social status. Though hats originated long back, it was not until the end of the 16th century that women started wearing proper hats inspired by men. The word 'milliner',  a maker of women's hats, was first recorded in 1529 when the term referred to the products for which Milan and the northern Italian regions were well known, i.e. ribbons, gloves and straws.

Now that you have studied for the day, go get your hat on and enjoy the weekend. It's hot out there.

  4. I also wonder the same. Then I think that summers in most Indian cities is so humid that wearing a hat would only make it more unbearable. But certainly parts of the country where the summer is a dry one, hats can definitely be worn and should be worn!
    You look cute with yours. I do have a few too.

  5. You are right. We should wear more hats in India. Love the way you have paired yours. The shirt provides the perfect colour for the grey skirt :)

  17. It's definitely a good idea to wear a hat when it's really hot! I always find that I don't like wearing hats when I'm in Asia though cause it feels like the hat is keeping all the heat on my head!

  22. I think that hats are a really underrated accessory- not many girls in Latvia wear them either. I am not a big hat person myself, because they don't exactly look good on me!
    Though, you look really good in hat, in fact you look so cute in it! :)
