White is the color of 2012

People say that technically white is not a color. I don't know if this is true or not, but for hats white is the color. This summer men and women are choosing white in all styles of ladies sun hats and mens fedoras. White, of course, matchs just about anything you wear ,but it seems to be more than that. Year round black is #1 in any hat style, but we at The Hat Company cannot keep white in stock. Vegas visitors to our store go directly to the white hats. We used to get the question all the time about "how do you keep a white hat clean?' Keep it in the closet. Then they would go ahead and buy black. BORING. No more, white is it in hats. We have also seen more and more totally white outfits on the ladies for the hot summer months. Bright colors and white will keep you in the height of style in summer 2012.
Hat Question of the week: What did hats signify about the wearer in the old and ancient days?
1] Your head was bald
2] You were having a bad hair day
3] What style or shape of hat you wore was a sign of your social rank or type of skilled employment that you enjoyed. Answer next week.

New Trend in Women's Headwear

In the next 3 to 12 months the low-top jockey ballcap will be seen on all kinds of heads in People Magazine, Facebook pages of celebrity women, and trendy fashion conscience ladies.    The idea is to mix the ballcap with more dressier styles of clothing to give an offsetting look.  The caps will be decorated with prints of cute animals of all types such as puppies, palm trees, fruit, famous landmarks, and just about anything.  Colors will be pinks, blues, and neutral tones to show off the cute prints.  The trend will make a big splash for a few months or a season and then move on to something else.  You heard it here first.
