Over the last few years I’ve become seriously addicted to my hats, finding them more and more essential to my everyday style, especially as a mom. The obsession all started while I was pregnant—what else are you going to buy for yourself during that time, am I right? But I also give credit to the discovery of Janessa Leoné hats, which can instantly change or enhance your look, make you feel 10 times cooler and hide your hair if it’s one of those days. I’m not sure how I made it through life without a handful of good hats but all I can say is thank goodness for Janessa Leoné who makes it so easy, almost too easy, to fall in love with a style that suits you.
If you haven’t been to her amazing store at Platform in Culver City, I suggest you make a trip! It’s beyond fun to try each style on and you’re bound to find one that will become your wardrobe’s best friend. Here are my top styles that I wear on repeat…
The Janessa Leoné Hats I live in…
The Fawn, one of her latest styles that I’ve been wearing almost everyday lately. It’s perfect with just about anything but I love wearing mine with long, simple dresses and bikinis, duh.
The Klint, easily the most worn hat in my wardrobe. It has that subtle nod to the past so I grab anything with the same vibe—antique-like blouses and dresses, liberty prints, vintage denim and loafers.
The Mattie, the hat you get on a waiting list for. I literally feel like a different version of myself in this hat and I love it. It’s so Bridgette Bardot in France.
JL Mini Styles
And then she made mini versions… drop the mic. I don’t think it gets any cuter. Elin’s pick? The Calla Light Pink Mini.
