This week’s Fashionista is displaying the epitome of a summer outfit, looking very put together yet casual while enjoying the last days of the school year. She is wearing a striped dress, Tory Burch flip-flops and a fedora hat. The style of her dress, having multiple straps, has been a very popular trend this spring season. This Fashionista’s particular dress not only has spaghetti straps but also off the shoulder thicker straps creating a very unique dual strap feature. Furthermore, in regards to the hat, a lot of people in my opinion cannot pull them off. However, I believe that this Fashionista pulls it off effortlessly. The straw composition combined with the navy blue band is summery and preppy, the perfect hat for the upcoming season.
Fedora’s are not just spring and summer staples as Donna Karan proves in her fall 2012 collection. She pairs them with structured suits and tailored dresses to give somewhat of a masculine and rough vibe, where-as, this week’s Fashionista’s gives the opposite feeling of femininity and warmth. The season and outfit definitely create the mood around the hat. Just as fedoras have seasonal ambiguity, both males and females also can wear them. Lanvin’s fall 2012 collection for men featured a variety of fedora inspired hats. These were paired with suits and overcoats often times covering the eyes creating a sense of secrecy.
As you can see fedoras are the hat of versatility and chicness and should be incorporated in your summer wardrobe!
