Woman Of Many Hats

Woman Of Many Hats

No matter what season it is, you can always find me wearing a hat. Even if the sun is blaring down on the top of my head or if it’s ridiculously windy… I will always wear one…I might have to hold it to my head for dear life but I will wear hats till the day I die. I know that’s a bit dramatic, but I truly believe my hats up the ante. You ever sit in front of your closet wondering what that one thing is that could make your fit better? For me, most of the time it’s a hat or some bold accessories! Whenever I put one on it feels almost as if I have a new persona. The cool thing is that they can fit any “genre” of clothes you have. For example, there’s the beret, beanie, boater hat, bucket hat, cowboy hat, derby hat, floppy hat, newsboy hat, straw hat, triangle crown hat, fedora, rancher, etc. The point is that there are so many to match your style, so why not be a hat gal?

Shelby Jewel has a great variety of classic hats that can be worn time & time again. One of my favorites right now is the Miller Fedora hat that’s black with a brown band around the crown. The brown ban really adds the perfect amount of pizazz for a simple black hat. The model is wearing  the Vendeti Corduroy Blazer with the Gentle Wind Mock Neck top in white & straight leg denim jeans. This fedora makes a casual look a little more business, especially fitted with the blazer.

If you want the black hat without the brown band we have the new Wes Fedora! It is styled with the gorgeous new set: Piper Pullover Sweater & the Piper Lounge Pants! Imagine wearing this set with booties & the Wes Fedora while walking through New York City sipping on your coffee. This look all together is my favorite because of the simple elegance. The fedora & the booties really elevated this cozy set!

If you are looking for a cream hat the Dakota Triangle Crown is the one for you! Nothing can beat a beautiful cream hat in the fall because of the contrast of the warm fall colors compared to the cream. The cream Dakota is a great neutral to wear in the fall, spring, & even the summer! The model is wearing yet another chic set: Alice Crop Neck Turtleneck & the Alice Knit Pencil Skirt. This outfit should definitely be worn for fall pictures, fall rooftop party, or a holiday event.

My favorite hat of all time is the oh so chic Cara Loren Pencil Brim hat in tan! The structure to me is profound…yes, the brim is my favorite part! The tan color is the best neutral for fall & it can be worn in any season. She is strong & filled with sophistication! The model is wearing the cutest sweater ever, aka: Coffee Break Mock Neck Sweater. The neutral colors of the sweater & the hat play off each other so well. Add a great pair of denim jeans & some flats for a dressed down look or spice it up with a fall skirt & some booties for an outside holiday event!

Let’s mix it up with our Zephyr Rancher in a muted sage! I’m a sucker for hats that aren’t neutrals because you don’t see them worn a lot, but when someone pulls it off I’m rooting for them in life!! The model is wearing the darling Whimsey Printed Slip Dress in a bone color. The sophisticated, yet free spirit gal would look awesome wearing this outfit to a picnic, tea party,  or even on a stroll in the park.

If you wanted a rancher hat in two different colors- we’ve got you covered! The Monroe Rancher hat in black & cream is short brimmed & sturdy. With the black rancher the model is wearing the Bentley Balloon Sleeve Sweater in a soft cloud color with the Audrey Linen Pant. This is a dressed up casual on-the-go look. With the Monroe Rancher in cream the model is wearing the Bentley Balloon Sleeve Sweater in cream with denim straight leg jeans. You can dress her up with booties or down with some good ole white sneakers.

Last but not least, we have a great staple hat, the Dakota Triangle Crown Hat in brown. Brown is honestly the best hat color to tie in summer to fall, fall to winter, winter to spring, & spring to summer. It’s an all year long hat that you will definitely make the most out of. The model is wearing the Bentley Balloon Sleeve Sweater in a soft mocha color. The brown hat & top mixed together with denim + booties = the best pumpkin patch pickin’ outfit!
