Hat Fashion – Transition from Summer to Fall

Before you know it, the chilly fall weather will soon be upon us. You don’t have to pack up your summer wardrobe just yet, though. You can get the most mileage out of all your summer pieces by adding one accessory in particular to your look. Here are some tips to help you transition from summer to fall in the headwear department.

Felt Hats

Trade your summer sun hat or fedora for a floppy felt hat in a jewel-tone or earth-tone. These hats are a little more slick than a beanie and they’ll still keep your head covered. The texture of the felt looks great paired with a messy braid and an infinity scarf.

Fiddler Caps

With summer on its way out and fall fast approaching, the Greek fisherman’s cap is a great transition headpiece. A fiddler cap brings a nautical feel – saying goodbye to summer – and many are made of wool – saying hello to fall.

Today, people wear beanies all year round – even when it’s hot outside! But this fall, you may see some people sporting them a bit differently than you’d expect.¬†Designers like Stella McCartney, Alexander Wang and Donna Karen all showed beanies in their autumn collections, making a relaxed hat a tad more sophisticated. Pair a simple knit beanie with pointed courts and a mannish coat for a new twist on the normally casual hat.
