Accessories Report

In this week’s ACCESSORIES REPORT we take a closer look into the wide world of head wear, and find out why hats are so fabulous. Much like a gorgeous pair of leather shoes or a fantastic handbag, hats can often provide the finishing touch to an otherwise incomplete look. When it comes to this Fashionista, she added a polished bowler hat to her school girl-chic ensemble.

Whenever you are looking for that last minute addition to your look, and your usual options have been exhausted, a hat can be the perfect detail that sets your outfit apart. Regardless of the time of day or the occasion, hats can be used in a number of different ways. For instance, a bowler hat, such as the one this Fashionista is wearing, can be used to complete your daily look for class or a meeting. A woolen bowler hat, much like this one from Topshop, can keep you warm during the colder months, but also aid in maintaining your elegant demeanor on any given day.

Overall, this Fashionista easily pulls together her delightfully preppy ensemble with neutral, dark colors and matching black accessories. Her leather handbag, such as this one from ALDO, keeps on with the neutral theme of her outfit as well as providing a functional aspect for common use. Likewise, her shoes are a wonderful match with this ensemble because they help to carry out a common theme for the rest of her accessories. If you are looking for a quick fix to help bring your shoe game from drab to fab, adding a pair of leather shoes like these suede, platform oxfords from Tod’s are sure to do the trick.

In addition to incorporating a good hat into your wardrobe, it is always useful to have accessories that will go well with one another with the most minimal of efforts. Having a neutral color scheme to work from is always helpful due to the colors being so versatile, even if you also add some pops of color to your outfit. Lastly, a little hat can go a long way and help to make your look appear effortless and elegant.

Spotted: Hats and hoods were all the rage in both the Fendi and Moschino fall 2014 ready-to-wear shows.
