January 2012 Lookbook: Fun with a Fedora

January 2012 Lookbook: Fun with a Fedora
This look is part of Omiru’s January 2012 Lookbook series, which builds upon our 16-Piece January 2012 Capsule Wardrobe.  See more information about this look.

When it comes down to it, a lot of the fun in dressing up is playing with accessories.  You can transform a look with a single item - be it a statement necklace, a fantastic pair of boots, a colorful handbag, or as it often happens, a smart hat.  What I love about the fedora is that it instantly adds an air of playfulness to a look.  It’s simple, it’s chic, and it adds a certain boyish charm.  Here’s how to get the look:

1. Start with a traditional big over small combination - an oversized blouse over a pair of skinny bottoms.
2. Layer on a cozy sweater.  After all, it is the middle of winter.
3. Add a jacket on top of the sweater.  We love how the leopard print denim jacket pairs with the texture of the sweater - and the peep of color you get from the blouse underneath.
4. Finish off this simple look with standout accessories.  I picked a pair of colorblocked flats (aren’t they lovely?), a stunning suede colorblocked handbag (adore the purple & red combination), and last but surely not least, the ribbon tied fedora to cap off the look.

How would you wear a fedora?
