Oversized Fedora & Fun Fashion Friday Link Up!

December 3, 2015

In today’s look, I took a very simple outfit (sweater, jeans, booties) and automatically upped the style quotient by adding an oversized fedora.

I have a fedora in black and now burgundy too.  It’s great for covering bad hair, dirty hair, grey roots … you name it! And hey, it actually keeps my head warm too.


Here’s a few other dolls rocking the oversized fedora trend ….

    I'm not a hat person, but when you said "cover up gray hair" .. I thought – Oh, ya, I'm gonna get me a hat!

    Also love your wedge boots 🙂

    Nothing better to make you feel fabulous and a great hat! It's such a lady like way to take it up a notch without trying to hard. Looking stunning as always! Thank you for another great link up!

    I LOVE that ladies hats are making a comeback (I hope!) other than at church. That is one of the once commonplace fashions that never should have died. Your hat is gorgeous…and so are those wedge boots! Work it! Happy Friday!

  • Reply Tall girl December 7, 2015 at 1:45 pm

    I wear hats all year around, but more so in winter to keep my head warm and the rain off my hair, and love how the hat brings some pizzazz to an outfit. Hat hair is not so great, however. 😉 Thanks for hosting the linkup!

    What a fabulous hat! I didn't have the confidence to wear hats until quite recently but they can totally transform an outfit!
