I’ve been sharing my ultimate festival favourites, just in time for Glastonbury 2015! I recently blogged about the ultimate festival shoes and in keeping with this theme today I thought I would share my thoughts on the ultimate festival hat! You know I’m a massive hat lover. I think it’s a thing – you either love ’em or hate ’em and I’m definitely in the former so this was a challenge I was more than happy to pursue. After a lot of consideration I finally decided that the Stott & Scott Floppy’wester was the deserving winner of this accolade.
A Bit about the Brand
Stott & Scott are a UK hat brand founded by two fashion-loving best friends. They have designed the floppy’wester hat which was borne out of friendship, love and a passion for happiness. All Stott & Scott products are made in the UK using UK based products. The idea behind the hat came from the changeable British weather taking inspiration from 1960’s style trends.
As soon as I spotted this hat I knew it was the perfect festival hat. It’s a hat that is suitable for all weather – rain or shine. Outfit planning for festivals in the UK or Ireland is never easy, the weather is so changeable, as we know and I thought it was so great to have a headpiece which has you covered on all bases when it comes to weather! The hat is reversible with contrasting lace and waxed cotton. So when the heavens open at a concert simply turn your hat inside out ensuring the waxed side is on the outer. There are a number of different styles available with prices ranging from £35 – £50. My favourite is the Britpop; which is the black & white version featured in this blog post. I love the lace detail, it’s super stylish along with being a very practical, fashion choice.
