I love when function and fashion join forces. Think stylish winter coats, chic iPhone cases and adorable comfy sneakers, just to name a few. For summer, there isn’t an accessory that combines both style and purpose more than a Fashionista’s favorite fedora. A simple and easy add-on to any wardrobe, the fedora can instantly alter the feel of your outfit from prim and preppy to laid back and cool. Whether you’re relaxing on a beach far away or just strolling a city street, this accessory is sure to make a stylish statement.
I spotted this Fashionista looking effortlessly pulled together in a trendy stitched fedora. The small pattern of her hat contrasts perfectly with the like color bold stripes on her black and white dress. There’s no denying that black and white is a huge trend for fall, and this Fashionista commits to the trend with ease. Her striped midi dress gets a mod update with illusion paneling, creating a figure flattering effect.
A few simple gold accessories are all she needs to brighten up fall’s favorite neutrals. I love how the pyramid studs that detail her cross necklace pop against the high contrast stripes. This Fashionista completes her look with a trusty black tote with edgy skull embellishment that’s perfect for a busy day of classes.
So while we’re still enjoying the gorgeous summer weather here in the Northeast, be sure to accessorize with the perfect fedora to suit your style. Paired with looks as simple as jeans and a tee, or as romantic as a floral frock a la Michelle Williams, your options are endless.
Spotted: Kenzo’s pre-fall 2011 collection is just one of the many instances in which the fedora has appeared in a big way. Scour this collection for inspiration to top off your favorite fall looks.
