Buying new hats for spring might seem like a task from the to-do list of your (older, wiser, and impeccably dressed) grandma, but don’t let Granny have all the fun. NYC-based brand Yestadt Millinery is making it so that a decidedly younger crowd gravitates toward sprightly toppers.
For spring, Yestadt is all about airy pastels, plus a few all-black pieces for good measure. Think that berets are strictly for fall and winter? Think again — Yestadt’s got a light and structured model for your enjoyment.
