If you want to step out in style this summer don a hat or headpiece. That’s the advice from hatmaker Aisling Maher. She says these accessories are easy to wear and can dress up an outfit in seconds.
Her handmade pieces - which sell at Marian’s in Francis Street and Beyond Beauty in Claregalway - range in price from €30 to €200. Each is bespoke and features crystals and freshwater pearls. They are inspired by the Irish landscape be it the Cliffs of Moher, the Burren, the waves or the stone walls of Connemara.
The designer says style icons are increasingly turning to hats to give their ensembles an edge.
With the wedding and race season upon us everyone is searching for something different to put in their hair.
“Style icons from Lady Gaga to Sarah Jessica Parker to the late Audrey Hepburn have all worn fantastic creations and it is our turn to join this list and don a hat or headpiece.”
