Trend Importance Factor: Medium.
Wearability Factor: Medium.
How to Wear It: The menswear-inspired fedora hat provides a nice counterpart to the predominantly pretty, feminine looks out on the runway. And for men, it provides a gentlemanly accessory for otherwise casual outfits. On the streets, we’ve seen a few Fedora Fashion Formulas for women that we adore:
Fashion Formula 1: Fedora + Cropped Sweater + Tank + Shorts.
Fashion Formula 2: Fedora + Lacy Camisole + Pinstriped Pants.
Fashion Formula 3: Fedora + Ruffled Blouse + Embellished Belt + Jeans.
Where in Trend Lifecycle: Early. This season’s focus on eclecticism has spurred a renewed interest in accessories, and fedora hats are one of fashion’s hottest hat styles.
