3 Hats For The Freelance Writer

As a writer, you need not worry about what you're going to wear to work every morning. This is just one of the several perks that come with the territory.

However, you need to take full advantage of the bohemian lifestyle that the noble profession affords you. Here are three types of hats that you might want as part of your bohemian wardrobe.

The Slouchy Beanie Hat

Beanie hats are trendy and they're perfect for freelance writers in more ways than one. Unlike many "office-based" professionals, short and well-combed hair (or the traditional ponytail) is not a pre-requisite for working as a writer.

Writers will often spot dreadlocks; twisted rope braids and fishtails among other seemingly unconventional hairstyles. All of these work perfectly with a slouchy beanie hat to give a casual look that you'll probably love.

Additionally, a bad hair day is probably less of a concern for you because you get to stay indoors for the greater part of the day. A slouchy beanie might be the perfect cover-up for your bad hair when you have to pick up a few things from the grocery store during work hours.

The Floppy Boho Hat

You shouldn't really claim to live a bohemian lifestyle if you don't have at least one of these hats in your wardrobe. Floppy hats often have a wide brim, and they work well with flowy dresses and floral prints, both of which are integral components of the bohemian wardrobe.

Spotting a floppy boho hat is perhaps one of the best ways to scream to the world that you write for a living. In addition to being a fashion statement, a wide-brimmed floppy hat has great functionality. The wide brims offer great protection from the sun. Perfect for a day out on the beach or when you decide to take a travelling break in order to gain a fresh perspective on your writing.

The Fedora Hat

Even with the bohemian lifestyle, you'll probably want to look a bit formal from time to time. For example, a beanie hat or a floppy boho hat may not be the best choice if you're going on a first date or if you have a meeting with a potential publisher. You might want to rock a fedora hat for situations that require you to make a more "formal/serious" first impression. Fedora hats are known for their indented crowns and their wide brims. One can rightly argue that the fedora hat strikes a perfect balance between bohemianism and professionalism.
