Lime green straw 1960s brim floppy sun hat
With shows like Mad Men making a huge impact on fashion, it's no wonder that we are seeing the return of the waistline!For the new Fall 2011 season, there will be plenty of dresses reminiscent of the 1950's - 60's where fitted waists and full circle skirts will most definitely be the silhouette of choice!What better way to accent this feminine asset than a simple slim belt. Topshop's green double bow keeper belt is one of our favorites here at the Hive. In the perfect shade of classic Kelly green, the leather belt features two dainty bow keepers and a antique gold buckle. Wear it with pretty dresses or, for something more casual, pair it with a crisp white shirt and some high-waist jeans. (It also comes in - light tan, orange, aubergine and oxblood versions!)Where to Buy - TopShopPrice - $32.00Who - Melimeli was the first to add the Green Double Bow Keeper Belt to the Hive.

There are several things a big floppy hat can do for you this summer. It can protect your face from the sun, keep your hair color from fading (again, those darn UV rays), and it can hide a bad hair day. Not too shabby for such a simple accessory, right? But, what's even better is that you too can be the proud owner of this lovely, classic piece of head wear for less than six bucks! Yup, you definitely read that correctly. That means for the same amount of the sandwich you're gonna buy for lunch, you'll also be ready to take on a hot, sunny afternoon at the beach or pool in style. Hat tip to that!
