New Felt Hats Hit Beyond Retro Stores

Posted on January 31 2012

Pre-season essentials come in all shapes and sizes. But time and time again you’ll see that accessories pretty much get the over-rule vote. Be it bags or belts, our winner here at Beyond Retro HQ is the trusty hat. Reliable in wet weather (although a fun challenge in windier climes) these are an instant hit when completing an outfit within a nano second. While our Top Hats, Trilbys and Pork Pies continue to fly out the door, 2012 sees a couple of new treats for our snappy dressers of the female variety.

Our newest additions compliment the demands of the wettest season in shapes reminiscent of the lost hazy days of summer. Our picnic-perfect straw hats were the hit of spring 2011 at Beyond Retro, but out go the straw varieties of the summer and in come our adorable felt hats in two classic retro shapes.

Pick from either felt cloche hats, straight out of the 1920s, or perhaps continue the obsession with the '70s with a floppy felt number. Each are available in tan, black or wine, each coming in at £22. The 1920s are set to be big news for SS12, particularly with Ralph Lauren’s depiction of The Great Gatsby causing quite a stir, as well as Gucci’s flapper fabulous Art Deco frocks. And a look that epitomises the summer year after year is the floaty, fluid shapes of the '70s, which is topped off perfectly with hats such as these.
