I want to thank everyone who participated in the “Looks You Love” January contest. We received some great entries just proving that Hats in the Belfry customers are the most stylish hat wearers around.
I am really excited to share our finalists. These looks will be posted on our Facebook page and you will have the chance to vote for your favorite. You can vote 2 times, once in the Men’s category and once in the Women’s category. Feel free to leave comments here on the blog for your favorites. Voters and commenters will be entered to win a $25 gift card. The winner in each category of the “Looks You Love” contest will win the hat they featured in their look and a $50 gift card.

“I would put my hair in braids, top with the hat, and pull on this dress as a bathingsuit coverup. This would be perfect for walking down to the Naples Beach Club for a pina colada at sunset.”

Hat: Belfry Bishop, Scarf: Men’s Merona Woven Plaid Scarf, Shirt: Spread-collar regular-fit dress shirt in white, Sweater: Merona OPP Sweater, Pants: Pinstriped tailored pants (slim fit), Coat: Classic cotton trench, Shoes: Bostonian, Men’s Akron Classy, Dressy and fun. Sophisticated yet not overstated. Dressy enough for the office or out on the town….casual enough for post-bar café or drinks at a cigar bar. The gray in the sweater and the high-crown fedora – pulls the look down from head-to-toe. Shoes are classy with a cap-toe and the red in the scarf is a nice contrast element with a patter to break up the solids of the outfit. The white shirt is fundamental to the ‘dressed up’ look. This look is also versatile. Too warm for a sweater? Ditch it and rock the shirt under the trench sans the scarf. Or, throw on a skinny black tie. Untuck the white shirt for a hint of sloppy-dress. This look will turn heads and envelop the wearer in a cloak of confidence and poise.

A fancy white dress shirt with French lapels, slim dress trousers, black vintage boots, finished off with a vintage dress jacket and topped off with Hats in the Belfry Deuce - Stingy Brim Bowler. Add an extra long feather on the bowler for added pizazz.
Ne-Yo has a thing for fedoras and beautiful suits and he looks good in them both. This ensemble he wore to the Grammys is by Ferragamo. Nice grey/black suit, yet his fedora should of matched up with a Belfry Street Fuego - Corduroy Fedora or Goorin Prohibition - Diamond Crown Fedora.
You have until this Friday, January 21st to vote. This competition is going to be tough. Happy voting! - Shannon
