[Trend] Wide Brimmed Fedora


I have spent a lot of time on Pinterest these last few days, and have fallen in love with fedora hats which I spotted on all of my favourite muses.  The short brimmed styles are gorgeous, but the wider ones are amazing (and having checked with a milliner, it is a fedora not a trilby when the rim is set flat...) - and they're everywhere!


I get the fedora trend is a continuation from the cowboy themes of 2010, which slowly developed into a stronger more androgynous idea - it sits well with all the military pieces too.  I'm not sure if I could pull it off, but I love the whole look - plus, they're amazing for covering up roots!


All my favourite people are wearing them: Miranda Kerr, Kate Moss, Erin Wasson, and one of the best 'outfit inspiration' bloggers Lucy Williams is always spotted in them during the shows. I love that because the hat itself is pretty tailored, you can wear lots of oversize pieces and neutrals with them... Easy, breezy gorgeousness.


I've had a little browse around the shops and found the following fedoras, not sure which to get but know I need to try this look ASAP. Reiss have come up trumps to start with, these two are lovely - I'm really liking the dark green one (which is actually in menswear) even though the brown is definitely more practical...

I then obviously had a long browse on Net A Porter and spotted these two - the Emilio Pucci one is a brilliant colour, and as always I managed to find a Rag and Bone piece (and it's that oxblood red that everyone is going nuts for at the moment).  Neither are cheap, but I bet the quality is amazing.


I also found a great little bargain at French Connection reduced from £40 to £24 here, ASOS have a few which you can browse here and finally this Paul Smith one is a winner for £85.

The one I'm wearing on my homepage is from Accessorize and was ten measly squids. I'd check their selection out if I were you!

I've been eyeing fedora hats for a while now (though I wasn't aware of the name of the style!) I'm going to check out the Reiss one as it's the exact colour I was after! Thank you x

Loving your inspiration. I'm on the hunt for a fedora too! I like the look of the beige one from Reiss.
