One of my personal favorite trends of 2015 so far is the floppy hat, especially for the coming hot summer. It’s the time of year when millions pack their beach bags to head towards the sunshine and sand.
For me I should never forget to bring my floppy hat. The wide brim floppy hat can not only protect our delicate skin from hurt in the strong sunshine, but also give us one charming look both feminine and fancy. So it’s not just designed for girls extremely sun conscious. It’s for all girls extremely fashion conscious. And more and more style icons are topping off a fantastic look with a smashing hat.
There are some plain floppy hats in my closet that I bought in the couple of summers. And I’m going to turn several into something unique. Today I am so glad to share with you the some both creative and easy DIY tutorials I found on internet.
