Maybe because I'm from the Caribbean or watched too much Carmen Sandiego, but hats are a necessity for my everyday. Originally used to prevent injury, hats are now the accessory that draws attention to one's attitude.
Featured are three styles that complement any fall outfit:
A summer staple than can easily transition into fall.
This straw acessory pairs perfectly with any linen or cotton in your closet. Another way to style it: bring out the neutrals to soften a look. Black jumpsuit and tie knot top would be my first suggestion.
Have a patterned suit? Add a Panama hat and a solid color top to create a luxe feel.
Floppy-brim Fedora Hat
A detail to remember.
The best part of a floppy-brim is that it changes its structure depending on how it's worn. It can take a cowboy shape if worn up-right, or leaned to the side for a cool effect.
I prefer a fedora with a matching detail like the black on black buckle paired with a chocolate lip and bold stripes.
Original Fedora Hat
Not just for 1950s noir films
Fedora are commonly used as an informal clothing piece made out of wool or polyeurethane.
A simple ribbon decorates the brim; use that ribbon color to inspire the look.
Here I paired it with terracotta pants and striped top for a cocktail attire. There is no wrong answer on how to style the fedora making it the preferred hat for a novice.
