staff picks: claire’s hat.

For our inaugural "staff picks" post, we asked Claire for her favorite Proper Topper offering. She just returned from a wild and wonderful Southern adventure, and she sent us the photo to the left, there, in which she's wearing a crocheted raffia safari hat (currently found on our shelves and online). The hat is her first pick, so we had to ask...

Why is the safari hat one of your current favorites?
It's a timeless style that's versatile and very easy to wear---this hat can go to the beach, garden, park, and rooftop bar! I appreciate its utilitarian design---wide brim, tight crochet weave, light color; it's everything I want in a hot-weather hat.

Where did you last wear it?
When I was running errands around town on Tuesday afternoon. The weather was absolutely sweltering, and my hat did a great job of keeping the sun out of my eyes and off my face (for which my fair skin is very grateful).

What can it be worn with/how can it be worn?
I like to wear it tipped back a little bit. I'll pair it with everything in my closet---whether it's a long maxi dress, vintage outfit, or white shirt with jean shorts. I think it's a universally flattering style for both men and women, and can imagine lots of folks wearing it well!

Thanks, Claire! Stay tuned for more staff insight into our wondrous stock!
