Hats reign supreme as we look to accessorize this fall. With styles ranging from berets to fedoras, this season dictates that you aren’t fully dressed without one.
Here are a few of our favorite toppers. And, don’t forget, as Frank Sinatra once said, “Cock your hat — angles are attitudes.”
A wide brim hat is a must-have. While there are plenty of slouchy styles a la 1970s bohemia, Eugenia Kim (of double fur pom pom fame) instead adds more sophistication with the Harlowe Wide Brim fedora. This black sueded-wool fedora is finished with a leopard-print calf hair band and boasts an adjustable ribbon for the perfect fit. Wear with a belted frock and tall suede boots to complete the look.
$445. Saks Fifth Avenue, Prudential Center, Boston
Boston-based knitwear company Shit That I Knit has the knit beanie trend well covered with the Gunn, made from alpaca and merino wool from Peru by group of women in Lima work from home, enabling them to take care of their kids while bringing in an income. Wear it with the faux fur “fom fom” or without; the slouchy fit and comes in nine kettle-dyed colors at Flock Boston.
$125. 274 Shawmut Ave., Boston
For a oui bit of French flair, try a beret with a bit of a kick in leather. The WYETH Joaquin Vegan Leather Beret at Madewell was designed in California by husband-wife duo Michael Hagen and Hedda Staines. Made from vegan leather, this classic beret can be worn tilted to the side and paired with a sweater, culottes and tall boots. Or, try it with a rock ’n’ roll tee and jeans with a slouchy cardi on the chilly weekends.
$39. Madewell, 329 Newbury St., Boston
Known as Le Champignon, this velour, fur, felt molded cap in lizard green is right in line with the trendy khaki and olive shades of fall. It captures the newsboy vibe, but you keep your styling feminine and modern. And if you don’t find that style suits you, Salmagundi is packed with more than 16,000 hats to choose from.
