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.
