68 Hideous Hats

Head Scratching Headgear, from Mad Hatter Couture to Eyelid Hats

— June 9, 2010 — Fashion
Now there is the right way to rock a hat (see my avatar), and there is also the wrong way to wear a hat (see this cluster of hideous hats). I don’t care if I’m going bald or it’s minus 9,000 degrees outside. Not one of the hats featured in this cluster will ever touch my head. Some are wild accessories in haute couture shows. Others, like the Bearded Beanies, are just hilarious. These hideous hats don’t exemplify cool like Sinatra’s fedora or Jay-Z’s Yankee fitted cap but just the same, you won’t forget them. From Mad Hatter couture to eyelid hats, this is a cluster you'll enjoy!
