Our Story

As a mom, business owner and woman on the go, I rarely have the time or energy (let’s be honest) to wash my hair. I was faced with that eternal question, "How can I look cute, but still have dirty hair?"  

...And that is how Shady Lady was born.

I love wearing hats but I could never find the perfect one. They were either too stiff, too big, had team names, or adorned with cheesy catch phrases.  

After a lot of unsuccessful searching I came to only one conclusion: If I couldn't find the hat of my dreams, I had to make it. I immediately started sketching, sourcing the softest material I could find and perfecting the measurements to fit a woman’s head- no more sweaty boy caps!

Designed in Fairfield, CT and available for kids and adults, Shady Lady hats are inspired by fun times with fabulous girlfriends and beach days that turn into cozy nights around the fire pit.

At Shady Lady we want you to have fun and not take yourself too seriously because every lady is a little bit shady.
