What Could Be Missing In Your Wardrobe, A Hat Holder?

Could a hat holder complete Your Summer Wardrobe?

If you haven’t got a statement hat holder, don’t overlook this small but super important item in your Summer wardrobe.
In fact, if you like hats, it belongs in any capsule wardrobe at any time of year.

Packing for a Summer holiday typically includes a swimsuit or bikini plus a sarong or beach dress and of course a beach bag, sliders and not forgetting a sun hat.

All too soon you’re at the airport and having checked in your luggage, you only have to carry a small carry-on bag. Until you remember your hat! And you’re left thinking: what am I going to do with my hat?

Yes you can wear the hat to save carrying it but you’ll have to take it off and say Goodbye to it at Security and Passport Control. How is it that your hat manages to escape out of the tray only to arrive squashed between 2 trays on the conveyor belt – and that’s if you’re lucky. You can’t really wear it on the plane so you put it carefully on top of your carry-on bag in the cabin locker. Yet you need to be sure that someone arriving on board later than you, doesn’t put their case on top of yours, squashing your hat again!

Hello Hat Holder!

I have often said, ‘little things matter’ and they do.

In this case, I’m talking about a small yet essential magnetic leather hat holder.
A quality hat holder, approximately the size of a key ring will keep your hat safely in place attached to your tote or basket. With a sturdy magnet closure to secure your hat, you’re left hands free!

No more hats losing their shape whether being crushed in your basket or between your shopping. They are just as useful for heavier hats too.

So whatever the weather and wherever you are, you’ll find a hat holder becomes your favourite accessory.

How To Style Your Hat Holder 

Changing accessories can create a whole new look.
Its worth noting that accessories are an integral part of your look. Avoid adding accessories as an after-thought as it’s too easy to add one piece too many.

A quality hat holder is another accessory that can become an intrinsic piece to hold your image together. Being made of leather, whether you’re in business mode, on holiday or BBQ Casual, they’ll always look good.

Choose similar colours for an understated look and opposing colours for more impact.
