Accessories Report

Fall is here and so are the funky and fresh fashion trends coming off Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. With all the trends to choose from that are bombarding the runways, magazines and college campuses, my favorite has to be the ginormous collection of hats! I first discovered the trend in the holy grail of fashion magazines, Vogue, and of course it was the iconic September issue.

I have always been obsessed with wearing hats in the summer and winter months and to my delight, there is a fun hat selection this fall season with so many different colors, patterns, styles and accents. Luckily the phenomena is only getting bigger. From fedoras, beanies, baseball caps, fur and cloche hats, my go-to style at the moment has to be a panama hat.

Today’s Fashionista captured the essence of the hat trend perfectly. Typically panama hats go great with any type of clothing and season. You can go for a chic and fierce look and pair the black hat with darker and neutral colors perfect for a cold day in the city. Or pull together a look like this Fashionista, and pair the hat with some fun floral print harem pants and a nude top for some balance. Not to mention her adorable color-blocking flats that complement the colors on her bottom.

A hat can take any outfit from ordinary to extraordinary in seconds, so don’t be afraid to throw on a hat this fall season and stand out of the crowd.

Spotted: Nicole Miller is always on point with her designs and the pre-fall 2013 collection is no exception. Miller introduces the fall to some staple looks accessorized with a fresh take on hats.
