While there were a few questionable chapeau choices captured this year, that’s not to say that we should issue an edict banning all floppy hats, especially when the originator of the look proves that it can actually work. Pretty much all of Rabensteiner’s hats look considerably beat up, but it’s better that way—a worn in hat has stories in all of its creases. This is probably why Rabensteiner’s floppy hat look works so well. It’s almost as if he’s just taken flat brimmed hats and worked them in 'til they can’t stand up straight anymore. If you have enough confidence to copy the look (or an only child complex), take it from RR and aire on the shorter side when it comes to the brim. It’ll make you look more like a fashion editor and less like a lady who lunches.

These sorts of things remind me how this is a fun hobby but it would be embarrassing to have to write about clothes for a living.
