How to Wear a Wide Brim Hat This Fall
Blustery fall days call for a stylish topper, so whip out that wool hat and rock it on your way into the office. Get to layering with textured pieces that bring a bit of edge, like a leather skirt, knit sweater vest and an eye-catching printed top. Funky gold hoops introduce a bit of polish, while snakeskin boots give the overall look a sassy ’70s vibe. To complete the getup, toss on a lightweight duster that will give you an added layer of warmth without all the bulk.

Forget frilly and fussy. Fall’s party scene calls for something a little more funky. Pair that sleek, wide brim hat with a flowy, feminine frock to infuse your look with a little mysterious je ne sais quoi, then step into quicksilver steppers with a sharp silhouette. Faux fur is in this season, so swap out your classic box clutch for a shaggy number in bright, statement-making hues. Make those lips pop in a siren shade of red and finish the look with streamlined baubles.

Play up that wide brim’s rocker edge with a few “psychedelic” separates. A dark floral duster packs plenty of bohemian personality, while flared denim feels oh-so-on-trend. Go bold by wearing not one, but two statement necklaces and ditch your standard sack for a structured backpack in a bright shade of red.
