Fall is in full swing and it is out with the straw and in with…just about everything but straw. The season change is my favorite time of year and as the new season of hats hit the shelves it is time to define your fall style.
The fashion industry works months ahead, so it is sometimes fun to take a look back at the runways and see what styles made it to market. This Fall Season, hats were all over Fashion Week in NYC and other major fashion cities. And many designers had one trend in common, women in men styles. From fedoras to bowlers, women are donning classic men’s hat styles for every type of occasion.
You have the fedora as an accent to evening wear like seen in the Valvo show.
Women in bowlers (and leather) in the Hermes show.
Women in Westerns with party dresses (and black socks) at Marc Jacobs.
Big Brim Classic Styles in Carolina Herrera.
Lucky for us, Hats in the Belfry is ahead of the curve with this season’s styles. We’ve been carrying bowlers since we opened our doors. And for the last few seasons, our women’s styles have been inspired by the classic fedora, but still wearable with the highest of fashion statements. I like the mix of masculine and feminine in this season’s styles.
