Tilt Your Hat at Just the Right Angle

The new Marc Jacobs collection featured numerous side-slanted hats...in straw, no less. These seem so nostalgic and great-grandma-ish. But, I keep wondering, how do you keep these on your head? I think this trend might fall into the category of looks-cool-but-I-can't-pull-it-off... What do you think? Does this seem like a wearable trend?

I am particularly enthralled by the way this lovely lady at Facehunter is wearing hers. Her version has a more Southern-American vibe to it, and is just so lady-like and summery.

I love how this woman seems so perfectly eccentric, with her puffy pants and side-slanted hat. She is like the cool aunt you've always wanted.

These hats are ridorkulous for my suburban life, but they sure look great on the runway! Hats off to Marc for his verve!

the secret is hatpins! Often tucked away in vintage shops, they are simply long pins (2-3 inches), often with a (fake) pearl on one end. Poke through the hat, weave some hair in; you're basically safety pinning the hat to your head to keep it in its jaunty place.
