Spring 1961 - Pretty Prints and Big, Big Hats

April 1961 - One of the important looks for this season is huge statement hats with wide, wide brims. Here they are paired with dresses in pretty prints.

Those are lovely. A wide brimmed hat makes sense these days to minimize sun damage/skin cancer, too.

I've got two giant-brimmed hats ... and am working on getting up enough courage to actually WEAR them!

Hats are showing up all over the fashion magazines right now. I love wearing hats!

These prints are exquisite. I'll take #s 1, 2, and 3. If anyone wants #4, you can have it.

Hats. I only have three in my wardrobe that aren't contemporary headgear designed to keep the winter off of my noggin. I need more hats.

I need some hats with brims that large- I would wear them all the time, but I never find ones with big enough brims.
