The sun is shining a little longer and the weather is starting to warm. It is the time of year when things start to bloom. Heavy coats will find their way to the back of the closet and bright colors will reappear in our wardrobe. Hats in cottons and canvas are making their comeback. I just love Springtime.
This season, light weight fedoras in varied shades of grey are the perfect compliment to any outfit. Grey is a great transition color between winter and spring and can be worn with ensembles both formal and casual. I took a look at the new arrivals from some of my favorite stores and paired them with some of our Spring hat styles.
For women, J. Crew is all about bright colors. This style is all about mixing complimenting colors like yellow and green with muted accessories in creams and greys. The Kangol Tropic in a light grey is a great accent that doesn’t take away from your bright style.
The J. Crew casual guy is bringing on the blues. Navy is a great transitional color that looks great with jeans, khakis or white linen pants shown here. The light grey Kangol Tropic looks great with any shade of blue and can elevate a casual look like this one.
Banana Republic is known for classic pieces that can be worn season after season. The pastel dresses showing this Spring are items that you will have in your closet for many years. I love the look of a flirty dress with solid colored leggings. Adding a hat in a blue-grey print adds a whole different dimension to the look.
Mixing prints is something that many people are afraid to do, but do not be intimidated. A printed hat like the Goorin BBQ Shrimp can mix with a plaid shirt like ones featured in the men’s line at Banana Republic. Don’t let the silly name fool you, this is a seriously stylish hat.
Express for Women shows that simple pieces when put together with the perfect accessories can create a comfortable look that is still very stylish. I love the idea of putting the dark grey plaid Puyo with a heather grey tank top and long comfy skirt. This is an outfit you would wear around the house and out and about on a Spring day.
The casual cool guy from Express for Men is wearing every shade of grey all in one outfit. A washed grey jean with a graphic tee is good, but add the dark grey jacket and top it off with the Belfry Street Puyo and you have a great outfit.
What every your style for Spring, a fedora in a shade of grey is sure to keep the clouds away. Check out our new Spring hats in many styles and colors at www.hatsinthebelfry.com. -Shannon
