Move over handbags and heels. There are new “It” accessories in town, and they’ve been in style before: vintage hats. And thanks to the online retailer Hat Covet, you don’t have to scour flea markets and yard sales to find these second-hand styles.
Hat Covet was founded by vintage fashion hunters and best friends Natalie Mackey and Chelsea Irwin. “Our team scours the globe to find the most beautiful creations from the roaring 1920s to the rad 1990s,” says Irwin. Each hat is cleaned, photographed and categorized before it’s posted on the Hat Covet website. Hat Covet offers eight different styles of hats – bowler, brimmed, capulet, couture, fedora, pill box, statement and Western – and has a team of expert stylists who can help you find the best hat for your style and face shape.
“Of course our collection is constantly growing,” says Irwin, “In keeping up with current trends and events, we’re getting ready to launch our Spring/Summer Easter and Derby Collection in the next week or so. Keep an eye out for these colorful additions!” HatCovet.com
