Style Advice of the Week

I could not pass by this Fashionista without admiring her outfit the other week in the city. She is looking fabulous and her style is certainly blogging material. Her outfit is professional, yet trendy, and her wide-brimmed hat helps her to stand out a mile away. I am all about the hats, especially for this time of year. And this Fashionista knows how to do it right.

It definitely takes a bold Fashionista to try out a big hat like this. But trust me, you can pull it off too. All you need is the right outfit to go along with it. Wide-brimmed hats are very popular these days so you will not have any troubles finding one. I absolutely love the detail of the Fashionista’s hat. This floppy brim hat from ASOS also has nice detail as it features leopard trim on it. Free People even has one with scarf detailing on it, which you can find here. Or maybe get one perfect for the holiday season such as this “UNIF Lore Velvet Hat” from Urban Outfitters. Nothing is more perfect for the season than velvet. But once you find the hat that is most suitable for you, you are almost there.

Next is finding the right attire to pair with your hat, and this Fashionista knows how to do that well. A white blouse topped with a fitted jacket is the way to go. I would recommend something similar to the “Glamorous Quilted Began Leather Moto Jacket.” Any pair of nice jeans will go well with this look, but I would follow the Fashionista’s lead and go with a dark wash. The final touch, and one of my favorites, is the Fashionista’s shoes. If you don’t already have a pair of ankle boots, I high suggest investing in a pair. These Jeffrey Campbell “Rosmore Zip Booties” from Shopbop are a wise decision. And just because we all enjoy planning our holiday outfits, perhaps consider some metallic ankle boots for the season.

We’ve all walked by those cool big hats in the mall and if you’re like me, desired to attempt and pull one off. But just follow this Fashionista’s lead and you’ll be looking style in one in no time. So go out and find the right hat for you. Happy shopping!
