Details, Details: The Fall Hat roundup
If sandals are the quintessential summer item, then a hat is fall’s definitive fashion piece. Like the cherry on top of a banana split (or let’s be weather-specific: the whipped cream on your mocha latte) the right hat can take an autumn outfit from passable to perfection. To help in your quest for the perfect head-topper, let’s take a look at the top three silhouettes of the season.
Whatever you call them, these face-framing knits are the height of cozy comfort (and have saved many a bad-hair day, too). Wear with a leather jacket and a knapsack for a downtown look, or with shearlingand aviators for that “just off to Switzerland for the weekend” feel.
WHO GETS IT RIGHT: Cara Delevigne, Emma Stone, Nicole Richie.
When it comes to topping off a sports-luxe look you can’t beat a cap. Youthful and fun, a simple cap in a traditional baseball silhouette looks amazing with a monochromatic outfit (but we’re not mad at loud leggings and oversize T’s either). Not into sports? Try one with a less pronounced brim.
WHO GETS IT RIGHT: Iggy Azalea, Beyonce, Fashion blogger Danielle from We Wore What.
They’ve been around forever, but ever since Hedi Slimane sent them down the runway for Saint Laurent, a wide-brimmed version feels fresh. Wear with a fringed sweater and a pair of skinny jeans or try it with a vintage dress and black tights.
