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. Other standouts include a purple-swirled chapeau, a colorful basket-weave, fedora-esque sun hat, and another beret, this time encrusted with bows and flowers. There’s also a perfectly on-trend ball cap in three colorways (two of which feature pretty, lacy overlay) and some askew toppers finished with more flowers. If you can’t find something to finish your fresh, youthful spring and summer looks here, we’re at as much of a loss as you.
