Style: Hat Couture

Covering your head has its advantages. It can protect you from certain weather elements and aid in hiding those random bad hair days that like to sneak up on us. From the runway to the sidewalk, hats are a great way to make a bold statement.

The Fedora

Two words pop into my mind with this hat: fun and funky.The term fedora originated from the play “Fedora”by Victorien Sardou and featured the heroine wearing something similar to what we know it as today. The key to this hat’s excitement is the air of mystery that it brings for the wearer. Throw on a pair of aviators or wayfarer sunglasses, slip on a pair of dark wash jeans, and you already have an effortlessly cool look!

The Beret

This hat is arguably one of the most famous hats due to its worldwide history. The beret could be found in the military clothing of the French, Scottish, and Spanish in the 16th and 17th century, on the heads of the Black Panther Party, and in Cuba with Che Guevara just to name a few. No longer just for revolutionists and military folk, this typically wool headpiece is simple, sleek, can be completely pulled down, or pulled slightly to the side for a fun look. Pair this with a pea coat, a cozy off the shoulder sweater, or a flirty dress to add a little something extra!

The Cloche Hat

Cloche, which is French for “bell,” is shaped as such and was designed by Caroline Reboux in 1908. Gaining popularity in the 1920s, these hats come in a variety of styles. They can be simple or adorned with ribbons, feathers, or jewels. It brings a luxuriously vintage feel to the wearer’s all over outfit. Bring out a flowy maxi dress, silk blouse, or trench coat for a soft and classy look!

You can pair these fine head adornments with just about anything. These celebrities are doing well with the hat game and offer some style inspiration!
