STYLE GURU STYLE: Mad Hatter

STYLE GURU STYLE: Mad Hatter

What’s in a hat, one would ask? A normal person might say a rabbit or a dove, but a Fashionista would say that it is a statement that bombards you with effortless confidence. In the past, we have seen plenty of hats from baseball caps to toboggans and even fedoras. But the wide brim trillby hat has caught my eye the most the past couple seasons.

It was hard to not be captivated by the trillby that was donned by the Fashionisto, and the jacket is a close contender but the hat spoke volumes. This Fashionisto took black and brown leather to the next level mixing an army fatigue jacket with black leather sleeves and adding a brown trillby and brown leather Chelsea boots. This look is seldom done and exudes and eagerness to show his originality. Mixing so many different prints also adds texture to the outfit, which the hat does as well. It adds a dash of ruggedness that only a lover of street style could appreciate.

How To: If you want to try your own trillby hat, you can simply pull a monochromatic look and keep it simple. If the hat is black, try and all black outfit with statement pieces and maybe a hint of white. The contemporary look is trending right now from Kim Kardashian to her husband, Kanye.  But don’t be afraid to go the daring route by adding and mixing prints! Make it your own dynamic, each depiction is sure to be bold and convey your mad hatter style!
