Bonnet in the Oregonian!

"Patricia Zanger and her staff at Bonnet in the Pearl District like to guide customers to hats that are both stylish and flattering."

If you happened to check out the Oregonian this past Thursday, I hope you got the chance to read the article on stylish hats for spring. Bonnet was featured in the article, which gave our shop a great review for those who haven't stopped into the shop yet. Here is a snippit of the article...

"At Bonnet, which had its grand opening last December, the focus is "trendy urban" everyday hats.

"In this economy, a lot of people are buying a cute hat instead of a cute coat to punch up what they're wearing," says owner Patricia Zanger.

Here are some styles to look for at Bonnet: a straw fedora (the more wear it gets, the better it looks, Zanger says), casquette (like a baseball cap with a soft, full crown), linen jockey hat, shiny rain hat, cotton bucket hat, enormous recycled paper straw sunhat, and sequined beret (daytime sparkle is a mini-trend).

Zanger likes lavender and fuschia this spring, which she says are flattering on almost everyone.

Most hats here cost $28 to $34. There are several makers, including Christy's Crown Series of Los Angeles. Many hats are unisex, and men's and women's are mixed together.

The staff will let you know what suits you.

"I don't want anybody to leave in a hat that doesn't look good on them, so we're really honest with people," says Zanger."
