For someone who rarely wears a hat, I sure have a large collection. The majority of my collection falls in the beanie family, but I do have some of the baseball cap variety as well. I keep my hats in a small drawer, along with mittens and other cold weather necessities. To be honest, I looked into this drawer as I was gathering material for this post, but before that gander, I can’t remember the last time I opened my hat drawer.
At least for me, hats are an item that can be neglected. They reside in a drawer and I hardly ever think about them unless I see Kate Moss wearing an amazing fedora of sorts, and then I go crazy trying to think of ways to look exactly like her. But I digress. The point I’m trying to reach is that maybe if I exposed my hats, such as by placing them on top of my dresser, or by hanging in an interesting pattern inside my walk-in closet, I would be far more likely to wear them.

I love these images because they showcase hats as a design statement, much in the way that shoes can be. A great collection of straw hats can serve as the focal point of a living room, and can also serve to fill an antique bookcase.
