I’ve not been one for wearing a hat. The odd pom pom hat when the weather is freezing, and that’s about it. Until now. I recently bought this hat from Zara. Two tone, felt, with a floppy brim. Converted, kinda. I think in the right situation, and in the right outfit it will look great – but I’m still feeling a bit self-conscious when I wear it.
I’ve been recently pinning images with beautiful women wearing Fedora’s. If only I could look as effortlessly cool as these babes. Just look at her in the red trousers!
An autumn hat, fedora or not, is a must. Wind swept hair, or made ‘fluffy’ from central heating is a no no. No amount of conditioner will do. Just grab a hat and you are off. Braving the cold as you rush off to work or grab a coffee.
I’m still not convinced by mine. Dan says kindly ‘perhaps it doesn’t go with that coat’? as I ask his opinion on it. At the end of the day – you gotta go with your gut, and my gut says ‘this hat looks bloody daft’. Perhaps I should have gone for a small, fixed brim, instead of the larger floppy one. Maybe I should change my hat, and persevere.
Oh well, I did try. If you fancy getting in on the fedora trend, I’ve put together a little shopping round up of colours and styles below. For more Autumn/Winter style inspiration, please visit my pinboard.
Tell me, do you wear a hat in the winter months? What do you wear? Do you have a fedora?
