Accessories Report

Hats off to this week’s Fashionista for effortlessly pulling off the floppy brimmed hat. This accessory has been seen throughout the winter months but there’s no need to leave it behind now that spring has sprung upon us. This particular look works well with a boho or urban and festival-inspired outfit. The weather is still a little too cold to pull off the festival look with a great pair of high-wasted shorts in addition to the floppy hat and booties. However, in the mean time wearing it with skinny jeans and a sweater is a great way to make the festival and urban-inspired outfit appropriate for the transitioning weather and a day of classes.

This particular hat from Saks Fifth Avenue is seasonless due to its clay earth toned color. It’s unique in that it’s a mixture of brown and orange making it wearable in varying seasons and with an assortment of outfits. What stands out most to me is the detail of the feather on the side of the hat. Not to mention the feather picks up the maroon color in her sweater ever so perfectly. The detailing of the feather gives this floppy hat the feel of a fedora, which is also a great purchase to make for the coming summer months. Mixing earth tones and small splashes of color is a great way to transition from winter to spring. Try out this ASOS statement hat to achieve the look of this Fashionista.

A pair of booties as seen on this Fashionista in her Steve Madden’s, is an added accessory that pulls this boho and urban look together. A pair hitting just below the ankle makes it possible to be worn not only with full-length jeans or leggings, but cropped pants as well as shorts when paired with the right outfit. It’s time to get the stereotype that boots are just meant for fall and winter out of our heads and bring them into spring. Free People often masters this boho look through the use of booties as you can see on their website in this combination of booties, floppy hat and bohemian dress.

With the new season, it’s time to try something new with your wardrobe so go get your floppy hat today and make a statement like this Fashionista did.
