When I’m working the Hats In the Belfry shop, I love to help people put together the perfect hat/scarf/bag combo. Now you don’t have to be in the shop to get expert accessorizing advice. We have added a new feature to our website that does just that! “Looks We Love” is a new section where you can get a little preview of how our hats look with other accessories. I wanted to share a few of my favorite looks on the blog today to give you an idea what to expect from our experts.
One of my favorite women’s hat styles this season is this Belfry Sadie, cloche. This hat is a statement piece that is sure to get complimented on the street. Often with a hat this special, people are conservative with accessories. I am here to say, you don’t have to be. This pairing of plaid print scarf is a fashion, YES! You can wear this look over any color coat, including black, camel, red, navy or brown.
A casual women’s look that is sure to turn heads is this brown and tan look. This knit Hat by Grace Hats is perfect for bad hair days and is much cuter than a ball cap. Pair this comfy hat with a stylish scarf and you look put together, whether it is over your winter coat or with a long sleeve t-shirt and jeans. Throw on your brown Bagallini and the look is complete.
For guys who want to look put together without looking like they are trying too hard, this casual camel look is perfect. An army style cap in corduroy from our new Belfry Street collection paired with a warm brown scarf looks great over your black or navy pea coat. Add your messenger bag and you are ready for work or school with everything you need. Plus you can wear this canvas bag year round.
The last look I picked to share is a classic. The snap brim felt fedora and the Belfry Tweed Scarf in grey. I love the contrast of the black hat with a grey scarf, instead of black on black on black. This style hat looks great with a long black wool or trench coat. The grey is a nice contrast without going too crazy with a print or a bright color. Sometimes people don’t think about the scarf when purchasing a hat, but you really need it to complete your winter look. Did I mention we are offering a gift with purchase of our classic style fedoras?
When putting together your winter look (or the look of a loved one this holiday season) don’t forget about accessories. And check out the Looks we Love at www.hatsinthebelfry.com.
