We have admired them on celebrities like Vanessa Hudgens, Rihanna and Angelina Jolie. Fashion bloggers like Olivia Palermo and Anna dello Russo wore them with style and with all sort of outfits, be it elegant or street casual. We know now: hats are hot and it is about time we invest in this kind of fashion accessory.
Most women used to wear hats to protect their heads from the cold and the wind, rain or snow. But this season, the weather is just irrelevant as the hats are an absolutely necessary trend to follow. Use them to emphasize your outfits and personalize them to fit the “YOU” brand. The fashion designers presented intricate designs, elegant and sexy hats, funny and funky hats. Whatever your personal style might be, we can assure you that there is a hat to compliment it. Here is our selection of 4 must have hats for this fall:
The fur hat
Winter is the perfect time to experiment with this fashion trend. The good thing is that it doesn’t need to be made out of real fur, actually we advise you to choose the fake fur as it is just as stylish and more eclectic combinations can be done with it. The fur hat is sexy and it will make you look like a Russian princes if you wear it with the right attitude. They are appropriate for all ages and styles and you can even wear them in a color that will compliment your eyes!
Fashion editor’s choice: wear them with leather pants or lace dresses for a stunning effect.
The cowboy hat
Although the western style is not a common presence on the catwalks, for this season we have it all: the hat, the boots, the leather jackets and vests, gloves and shirts. Once we have established the cowboy hat is fashionable and safe to wear, we’ll give you one more benefit that will make you love it: it suits pretty much any face shape and it’s incredibly easy to mix and match.
Fashion editor’s choice: wear it with jeans and a poncho or with leather boots, black skinny pants and an oversized sweater for a relaxed and stylish look.
The Cloche hat
I must admit I’m a big fan of vintage clothing and accessories so the cloche hat should have been the first on my list! It’s elegant and delicate and so very feminine! You can wear it to work or to formal events and we can assure you it will look stunning on you. The cloche hat is the perfect choice when combined with the little black dress or a retro chic outfit.
Fashion editor’s choice: wear it with a trench coat and pumps for timeless elegance. Favorite colors are nude, black, grey and burgundy.
The Fedora Hat
They have been fashionable for some time now and also the preferred choice of the celebrities. There is no question about it: they are the kind of head accessory that you can wear both to a red carpet event and to work for a casual Friday. The fedora hat looks great in combination with suits, leather pants, jeans, white blouses… like we said, they go well with any of your chosen outfit.
Fashion editor’s choice: wear them with riding boots, jeans, white asymmetrical blouse, leather jacket and a big size scarf.
Before buying a hat remember that they also come in sizes and it is important to get one that is right for your head and compliments the shape of your face.
