Accessories are often the best part of an outfit. You can wear the simplest monochrome ensemble and transform it into the trendiest outfit with some extra details. And we have to let you know that spring 2019 will be all about standout accessories of all types. Paris Fashion Week brought so many trends in the jewelry, hat, and eye-wear departments. Check out the statement accessories to shop in Spring 2019.
Pretty and romantic looks are in. Light and flowy fabrics, feminine ruffles, floral embroidery and prints are more popular now than ever. I feel as if a lot of the styles I am seeing are reminiscent of the Gunne Sax day’s back in the 70’s. The pieces were something like a combination of a boho prairie girl. They key is to add some modern touches to the outfit to make it a bit more modern and stylish while keeping the vintage vibe. In my look I paired this airy cotton jumpsuit from Free People that has that boho prairie girl vibe and combined it with an oversized hat by Nick Fouquet, a metal handbag by From St. Xavier, and since I really wanted to add a Gypsy touch to this I went heavy on the jewelry, mixing some newer pieces like the bangles and earrings with some of my favorite vintage pieces like the rings and the one large bangle. Having pieces that are airy like this jumpsuit for the summertime heat is so important. Cotton’s and chiffons allow you to feel cooler while looking great. Browse below to shop my look or make it your own with some similar pieces that may be better suited for your taste or budget!
Sun’s out, better start getting ready to flaunt the most stylish summer looks. No outfit is ready without some statement accessories. Straw hats are the perfect addition to simple, laid-back looks, bikinis or even dressier outfits. Check out how to style your fedora, boater, Panama hat or chupalla this summer.
Straw hats are definitely the perfect beach accessory. Even if you opt for a simple, monochrome swimsuit, you can elevate the look by including one of these hats.
One of my favorite spring styles is the dark romance style. It’s channeling so many of my favorite people and things. A little goth, contradicted with a little innocence, Saint Laurent, meets Stevie Nicks, bohemian meets western. There are plenty of ways you can describe this kind of look, but it certainly has a romantic vibe to it, and I love the natural-looking effortlessness of it, and how feminine and pretty it makes me feel. While shooting this look, I actually spun and danced around in circles singing “Rhiannon”. So maybe if you are planning to attend a music festival this Spring or Summer, this is a great look for that as well! I got a very similar dress in white as well and will for sure be wearing one of the two to a festival. Below you can shop my look along with pieces of a similar vibe to customize your own dark romantic look.
My Look: I paired this super affordable black maxi dress with these beautiful, drool-worthy Chloe boots that I couldn’t love without. I have been looking for a good pair of summer-friendly boots like this for literally a couple of years, and had no luck. Then I saw these beauties last month and was at Chloe later that day ordering my pair. They are a perfect fit for any bohemian babe look, but also can cross over into a rock-n-roll vibe, western vibe, or just a casual California girl jeans and t-shirt look. I threw on one of my “oldie but goodie” fedora hats that I customized with some satin fabric, and then finished the look with some vintage jewelry that I found at various places such at Etsy and flea markets.

During the cold winter days, we could use as many warm accessories as possible. Aside from the chunky oversized scarves, hats are another way to stay trendy and cozy. This year we witnessed the comeback of the chic conductor caps. But with the first snow, it’s officially time to swap them with beanies. The beanie is one of the most underrated accessories in your closet.
And when it gets ultimately cold, it’s not only about being trendy anymore. You will need something to keep you warm. One of the must-have accessories for winter is the beanie. You probably remember them from when you were a kid. At that time, they only served to protect you from cold. As a grown-up, you should think about more than one thing. If you are a fashionista who loves all the latest trends, you probably won’t find this hat very popular. But when it comes to winter accessories this is the most versatile one.
If you thought that a beanie only works with casual outfits, our gallery will change your mind. These hats will complement every single one of your looks. All you need is the right inspiration on how to style beanies. When you are wearing casual jeans, coat, and boots you don’t have to think twice to include one in your outfit. When you are opting for dark colors such as gray and black, a vibrant beanie will be a great addition to your style.
Most bloggers include these warm hats as a regular item in their looks. They find many innovative ways to make the beanie look chic without much effort. There are many different designs of this hat that you can rock. If you get creative enough you will find multiple ways to wear the same beanie. When it comes to colors black, white, gray, and camel are the ones that will pair with most of your outfits. Bold shades such as red, pink, orange as well as patterns are great for simple, monochrome fashion choices.
Another great thing about beanies is that you can wear them on days when your hair just doesn’t look right. We all have those bad hair moments, that make us slip on a hat and hide the messy do. Beanies are ideal for a crisis like this one.
Get some inspiration from the most popular style bloggers on how to rock a beanie this winter. You will find plenty of warm, trendy choices. Flip through the pictures below to choose your favorite ways to wear this hat.
You don’t have to be in Paris to wear a beret. This hat is one of the oldest and most fashionable accessories that exist. It can become a regular part of your style, especially during cold days. Many fashion bloggers and influencers showed off their favorite berets during the last month. All of them found easy and chic ways to include this accessory in their looks. Some people might find it tricky to wear a beret. But if you are open-minded and you love trying new trends, this hat will become your favorite.
First of all, you can style it in many different ways. When choosing accessories, we always want them to be versatile. That is the best thing about the beret. In the past women only wore it when they were all dressed up, or with super-serious suits. But today, those rules don’t apply anymore. The key to owning the beret look is to feel comfortable in it. You can always throw on your favorite jeans, fun sneakers and nice coat. Another way to go is to switch the sneakers with heels.
Classy and elegant outfits can always be accessorized with a beret. Power suits will look amazing combined with this hat. Plaids are big right now, and just like many other bloggers, you can try matching them with a beret. Skirts and dresses are other options. If you have a simple dress just add this hat and a chic bag, that’s all you need. Black is always a good idea when it comes to colors. It goes well with everything and you can pair it with patterned clothes. Red, brown, dark green, maroon are just a part of the colors that look amazing with fall outfits.
Take a look at these super-chic outfits that include a beret. All of them are cool, simple, and you will find them very helpful if you are looking for fresh fall ideas.
Fall is already in motion, and celebrities are serving us new trends. Cool accessories are always welcomed especially hats. We’ve seen celebrities wearing dad hats, fedoras, and straw hats. Now it is time for a new change. Most of the fun styles at the moment are throw-backs from the 90s. Starting from patched denim, check suits, Matrix sunglasses, they all belong to that decade. Another thing that will be huge in fall 2017 is the conductor cap. Get ready to fall in love with this weird accessory.
Famous influencers know how to make daring accessories a thing. It all started with the mega-popular Bella Hadid. The younger Hadid sister started rocking these unordinary hats a while ago. In the beginning, it looked weird and confusing. But shortly after that, the biggest fashionistas started following. Now, conductor hats are all over social media, being a part of the chicest outfits you can imagine. During the fashion weeks, almost every It girl involved a conductor hat in her street style
Elsa Hosk is another young fashion influencer who is in love with this cap. The supermodel even has a favorite hat designer that makes her conductor caps. Ruslan Baginskiy from Ukraine is the new celebrity-approved milliner. Hosk is one of his most influential clients. Kaia Gerber and Bella Hadid are also a part of his celebrity customer crowd.
You will see these hats everywhere this fall, which is a sign that you should own at least one. They are very versatile and look cool with many outfits. Karlie Kloss, for example, added a black conductor cap in her look for the Dior Spring 2018 show. Kendall Jenner wears them with casual outfits as a part of her street style. Here are some of the biggest celebs that are in love with this new fall accessory.
While many designers for spring 2017 opted to leave models’ heads bare, and to just play with different kinds of hairstyles, others decided that the spring/ summer 2017 hats were exactly what they needed to add an extra touch of magic, refinement, or edge to their collection. Hats are an important staple for the summer season, since they help to shield us from the sun, but they also make for an excellent addition to any outfit.
This season we really saw anything, from fascinators perfect for special occasions to different kinds of sunhats for that Caribbean vacation, and ball caps for those weekends out playing sports in style. No matter how you plan on spending the warm seasons, the spring/ summer 2017 headwear trends have you covered!
#1. Ride the Bull with Cowboy Hats
This is the least pretentious of the spring 2017 headwear trends – unless you are wearing it ironically… in which case, maybe it’s extra pretentious? Doesn’t matter! Whether designers were inspired by deplorables in baskets, or the incredible first season of HBO’s Westworld, we’re taking a walk on the wild side with cowboy hats this spring.
At Anna Sui, we saw a really colorful take on the cowboy hat, complete with cats on the bottom of the rim, dancing topless figures, and a massive pink shell in the center.
The Blugirl collection was all about honorable white hats, for the lawful lady who’s fighting bandits. At Sonia Rykiel, we saw a two-tone cowboy-style hat, but made of straw instead of the traditional leather.
#2. Always Ready for the Pool with Caps
Another of the summer 2017 headwear trends is all about channeling the pool, whether you’re in or out of it, with tight caps. What we learned is that there are a lot of different ways to play with this unique hat style – it can be adorned one way for a retro effect, or another for a sci-fi one.
At Dolce & Gabbana, we saw a gorgeous bejeweled cap, covered in many differently colored gems, which really reminded us of antique jewelry.
On the Maison Margiela runway, the caps had a much more futuristic effect. They appeared to have been cut out of felt, in pale shades. Their edges had been cut sharply, especially along the forehead and over the ears, and had been paired with headsets in some cases, adding to the sci-fi feel.
On the Miu Miu runway, caps attached by a strap under the models’ chins reminded us of retro swim caps – large and covering everything. These caps were covered in plastic flowers, emphasizing the beachy, ‘50s vibe.
#3. All About the Berets
I think this is the season when we finally admit that the French are not really into berets anymore – so we’re putting an end to the stereotypes, and will simply start accepting berets for what they are: a unique and classy part of this list of trendy spring/ summer 2017 hats.
The berets in the Desigual collection were full on guerrillero glam, covered in gorgeous floral designs and a bit of jewels. They were exactly the kind of hat I would want if I were fighting in lush, fantastical jungles, against a mythical fascistic despot.
At Undercover, we saw massive berets printed with piano keys.
#4. No Need to Look Beyond the Veils
Whether you are attending a sad spring time funeral, or just a great alternative party, you’ll be happy to know that veils made it to our list of the spring/ summer 2017 headwear trends.
On the Dolce & Gabbana runway, it was a full-on gothic showing, of a dark fascinator and black net attached to it, paired with sufficiently burgundy lipstick. On the Michael Costello runway, veils were also utilized for their dark, film noir vibe. A beaded black net was attached to an extravagant headband, and draped over the model’s face.
To really help the Dries Van Noten collection stand out, a long and thick piece of netted veil was wrapped around the models’ faces, and tied off at the back in a big bow. While this might not be fully practical, the idea of a net tying one’s hair back sounds quite lovely.
#5. Batter Up with Baseball Caps
This season’s baseball cap trend showed that high fashion can indeed meet activewear to create something that is just idiosyncratic enough to work.
At Chanel, pastel baseball caps were worn sideways, in a nod to the ‘80s. At Moschino, the baseball caps were also on the urban side. They were made of puffy, patchwork leather in shades of black, red, and pink, and were worn both facing forward and backwards.
At Desigual, as usual, fascinating designs were all so important, including on some lovely fabric caps. The effect, thanks to the bohemian design, really reminded us of the ‘70s.
At Elie Saab, many of the models strutted down the runway in ball caps covered in sequins. It was a wonderfully flamboyant take on a sporty look.
At Off-White, the ball caps were actually a stark white, emblazoned with the word “woman.” We also saw baseball caps, both extravagant in gold and a little more plain, on the Philipp Plein runway. Lastly, we saw edgy caps at Versus Versace, inscribed with the brand name.
#6. Uniform Chic Hats
A few designers took inspiration from various uniform-requiring professions. All types of soldiers were featured in the spring/ summer 2017 headwear trends.
On the Yohji Yamamoto runway, models sported a variety of military and office-style caps, complete with tough brims, in unforgiving shades of black and dark gray. The effect was especially striking and authoritarian because it was paired with pale pastel lipsticks, and spiky black locks.
On the Vivetta runway, on the other hand, the hats worn were reminiscent of a sailor’s caps – much like that iconic picture of the sailor kissing a surprised woman, right after the end of World War II. The effect was cute and quirky.
Lastly, at Moncler Gamme Rouge, it was the military marching bands that were represented, with white and black hats with solid rims, and tall crowns.
#7. All You Need is Brim
Visors are like the fanny packs of hats – utilitarian, and a little dorky. However, much like fanny packs are making a serious comeback, so too are the visors, which made it to our list of summer 2017 headwear trends. Normally, visors remind us of the old women who collect old beer cans like it’s a sport, but in the hands of a talented designer they can become the height of casual chicness.
The most unusual of the visors we saw this season were on the Nicholas K runway, where they had been made of suede, and had a very thick rims wrapped around the model’s hair.
At Max Mara, the visors were a cheeky nod to summer vacations, since their brims had been covered with exotic floral designs.
#8. Wrap Up the Season with Scarves and Headwraps
There is something elegant yet casual about scarves and headwraps – maybe it’s the way they were totally appropriate eveningwear in the ‘20s, and then became a symbol of the housewife in the ‘50s. Whatever it is, we love them in all their iterations, and are so happy to see them as part of the spring/ summer 2017 headwear trends.
On the Daks runway, we saw long keffiyeh-style scarves tied into beautiful headwraps that added a lot of volume, and exuded an old-timey, rural confidence. On the Miu Miu runway, some of the models sported bright, graphically printed scarves, tied over their hair in headwraps that had more of a ‘50s feel.
At Giorgio Armani, the head wraps were all about the ‘20s chic. The multi-colored scarves were kept smaller and tied tighter around the models’ heads. We saw earth toned headwraps at Pascal Millet.
Lastly, at Gucci, in addition to some extremely creative hats, we also saw luxurious satin headwraps and scarves wrapped around the models’ heads, and in many cases tied off in bows or buns right at the front of the models’ heads, rather than at the back.
#9. Golden Straw Sun Hats
Is there a better way to usher in the summer than with a golden straw hat? It immediately conjures memories of vacations to hot, exotic places, where the sun shines bright and hot.
Straw hats, on top of being forever effortlessly chic, are also extremely useful, to protect us from the harmful UV rays that become so much stronger in the winter time. The spring/ summer 2017 headwear trends are rife with excellent straw hat choices, to keep you stylish and protected during the hot summer months.
At the Agnes B. show, we saw some lovely straw hats, in the panama style that, rather than looking like your stereotypical farmer’s hat, actually had shorter brims, which made for a very stylish casual hat.
At Blumarine, designer Anna Molinari decided that big was it, with massive straw hats that functioned like portable patio umbrellas, and would make sure that anyone who wears them this summer will not be missed. Not one to be outshone, Christian Siriano’s models also graced the runway in hats with sizeable straw rims, and a fabric crown.
Daniela Gregis decided to play with unusual shapes in the straw hats she created. While we did see some traditional large-brimmed hats, a long bucket hat really stood out for its uniqueness.
We also saw large, golden straw sun hats at Jacquemus, Tome, and Liselore Frowijn.
#10. A Darker Shade of Straw
Some of the idiosyncratic spring/ summer 2017 headwear trends have a humorous effect, but the black straw hat trend somehow manages to be mysterious – think Addams Family Vacation. We saw a lot of perfect straw hats for the lady with a dark heart and ivory pale skin.
At Erdem, even the eyes were covered by the low, ruffled skirt-style brim of a shiny dark hat. At Emporio Armani, we saw a really dapper take on the hat, which was shaped like an especially large bowler, with a magenta bow.
Lastly, at Emilio Pucci, the effect was fully-protective, seeing as instead of having a proper brim, many pieces of straw jutted out from the crown, and totally obscured the models’ face.
#11. The Fiercest Fisherwoman’s Hats
This is another trendy take on an otherwise kind of dumpy hat. Designers really glammed up fisherman hats for the spring/ summer 2017 headwear trends.
On the Aalto runway, the models wore really unique fisherman’s hats, made of both fabric and leather, with a pearl chain to keep them from flying away. At Etro, the fisherman hat design was taken to a luxurious place, thanks to slightly longer brims, gorgeous prints, and a satin-y fabric.
Lastly, at Paul & Joe, we likely saw the most traditional take on this style of hat, in a pastel shade.
#12. Fancy and Fascinating Miniature Hats
Fascinators are not just for gothic Lolitas. These adorable and unusual miniature attachments have made it to our list of spring/ summer 2017 hats, so channel your inner diva and give ‘em a try.
The Christopher Kane collection had an overall retro vibe that was only increased by solidly colored quirky fascinators bent into swirly shapes.
On the Anna Sui runway, brightly colored fascinators with a lot of lace contributed to the models’ already sizably styled hair, and added a touch of mystique to the rest of the styling, which was a bit more twee.
#13. Shield The Eyes
By covering the eyes, designers immediately evoke a really unique, almost ominous vibe. Models cease to appear as individuals, and instead stand out as futuristic – perhaps as some sort of space-age soldiers. The designs we saw, where the models’ eyes were covered, were certainly futuristic.
At Anrealage, a black and white multi-part helmet made sure the models were ready for battle. At Dior, a silvery white visor, with a three-part brim, sat low on the model’s forehead, obscuring her eyes.
On the Wanda Nylon runway, the models’ eyes were obscured by blinged-out bucket hats, including one that was totally covered in tiny silver chains.
#14. Channeling the Creative Spirit
We can’t make a list of spring/ summer 2017 hats, without paying attention to those designers who crafted masterpieces that just happened to sit atop the heads of models on the runway.
First is the brilliant disco ball dog head we saw on the Thom Browne runway. At Undercover, in addition to the previously mention beret, we also saw brimmed fabric hats that looked like upside down vases.
At Shenzhen, models sported dark gray Gatsby caps covered in red, white, and baby blue fuzzy balls – like a really stylish, retro clown. At Sportmax, we saw a woven hat made of a shiny black material that reminded us of a unique witch’s hat.
Lastly, at Gucci, there were so many fascinating, unique, and creative hats in different styles. We saw a few massive fabric hats that reminded us of pirates, and solid caps with large flowery attachments.
Do you prefer the crazy and quirky spring/ summer 2017 headwear trends, or are you more of the practical type who prefers sun hats and ball caps? Let us know in the comments!

Don’t miss: Spring/ Summer 2017 Hair Accessory Trends
What’s better than the joy of combining one’s heritage with a different one, just to create something that is culturally, traditionally and fashion-wise unique and inspiring? Chanel-owned label Maison Michel and Scottish label Mackintosh have just joined forces to design a headwear collection that perfectly embodies both the fashion houses’ heritage, artisanal skills and attention to detailing.
For those who particularly love Mackintosh, such news may be a breath of fresh air indeed, especially because of the fact that, since the late Eighties, the label has been experiencing some decreasing sales. Worldwide known for its 100% handmade raincoats, Mackintosh has been delivering some of the best trench coats in the history of fashion for roughly two centuries now, inventing the process of rubberizing cotton in 1823 (a true Mackintosh waterproof coat is made of rubberized cotton).
And the exact same Mackintosh-approved rubberized cotton material, handmade finished in Scotland, has been utilized for the Maison Michel x Mackintosh hats collection, which consists of three different styles, namely a bucket hat, a flap cap and the evergreen fisherman’s hat (which is also one of this next fall’s hottest headwear trends).
To make everything even more neat-looking and one-of-a-kind, all of the three unisex styles got designed in France at the Maison Michel’s headquarters, coming adorned with the French label’s signature saddle stitch and embossed branded rivets. Each one of the different hats is available in different colors, namely black and a rich, earthy-toned slightly dark beige.
“Maison Michel was an obvious choice for us as they are a master of craftsmanship of hats, as well as being at the forefront of fashion and innovative design. We felt that we share a very similar outlook on growing and developing our heritage brands and we love what Priscilla Royer has brought to Maison Michel as creative director – and of course it’s always wonderful to work with a company that is associated with Chanel!” Sophie Wright, Mackintosh’s special projects manager told British Vogue.
She also managed to rejoice those who love the label and would love it to navigate new territories. “We are starting to expand our offering in to different categories, and we of course want to ensure that every garment or accessory under the Mackintosh brand is made with equal quality and care as our coats are. Collaborating with Maison Michel ensures this, while also bringing a sense of fun and introducing our, previously more heritage associated brand, to a younger and more fashion forward audience.”
As for Priscilla Royer, Maison Michel’s creative director, she appeared to be more than enthusiastic about the collaboration, especially given the fact that it enables the French label to challenge itself and work on something that could be equally classic and innovating.
“It was such a great opportunity for Maison Michel since we do have ‘the-weather-to-control’ in common. It felt right from the beginning. I like to make things that make sense and it totally makes sense,” she declared, and we couldn’t agree more with her!

After going through all the killer fall 2016 hairstyles and hair accessory trends, today’s agenda is to draw your attention to all the fall/ winter 2016-2017 headwear trends that have been spotted recently in the main fashion capitals. All is left to you now is just to put your thinking cap on and choose the headwear type that best fits your face shape and complexion. But before that flip through our favorite fall 2016 headwear trends and count the days until they hit the stores.
Update: Check out the new Spring/ Summer 2017 Headwear Trends!
Have you ever experienced a situation of standing in front of the mirror all dressed up and spruced up to the nines but still feeling some imperfection and incompleteness? If yes, we know the answer and definitely have no intention to keep it under hat. The abracadabra is a hat, a cap, a beret or any other headwear that once appears on your head is sure to cut the Gordian knot and serve as a smash hit for your whole outfit.
#1. Pretty Knit Beanies
One of the most functional winter-worthy headwear pieces comes to be beanies, for sure. They are knitted, soft, head-hugging, so street-style chic and easy to wear. The one and only bother might be the destruction of your spick-and-span hairstyle, which is why the best matchers for beanies are wash-and-go or tousled hair or maybe nonchalant low ponytails. These all-embracing pieces have been used so frequently on the recent runways that sending them to the repository of the main fall 2016 headwear trends is above suspicion.
We saw black and white, pink and orange high beanies, punk models of Alexander Wang that were knitted out of soft angora wool with slogans “Strict” or “Girls” sealed on the forehead and a thread of more compact samples at Etro paired with tousled hair and sometimes with cool sunglasses as well. At Fenty x Puma everything was gothic as opposed to those earthy-shaded ones at Polo Ralph Lauren with somewhat elegant touches to them.
As for Missoni’s chunky knitted beanies, nothing could be more struggling-against-winter, right? Don’t miss some lovely beanies at Zadig & Voltaire, Public School, Banana Republic, Brunello Cucinelli, Coach 1941, Michael Kors Collection or Fausto Puglisi.
#2. Gangster-Style Fedoras
From cult-classic Don Corleone fedora hat to those multiple black, taupe, white or grey fedoras in The Untouchables, the Hollywood gangster boys are set to bring forth the new fall/ winter 2016-2017 headwear trends and truth be told, we are more than pleased with their strict commands at this juncture. We saw these styles acting high and mighty at Daks, where head-to-toe black models were flaunting extremely harsh gangster-y visages.
At Philipp Plein we again saw black fedoras at times with some metallic chains wrapped around, while Trussardi comes up with taupe, grey and red gangster fedoras with some western atmosphere added to them. American criminal world have greatly inspired Faith Connexion, Wendy Nichol and Marcelo Burlon as well.
#3. Poetic French Berets
No matter who you are by your profession or by nature – a pragmatic business lady or a strict schoolteacher, whenever you pose with a French beret on your head, that leads to some poetic moments and when poetic moments meet autumn moments that is something beyond imagination. Berets fairly stand on our list of the best fall/ winter 2016 headwear trends through their frequent usage on recent runways.
With Giorgio Armani’s black berets tilted to the side and Mara Hoffman’s velvet and knitted staples with hair down you will surely infiltrate some romantic French avenues. We see lovely berets with pompoms running the gamut at Orla Kiely as well, but if you are after to know our favorite one among them, it’s that lurex purple beret worn with short blonde curls protruding out playfully.
#4. Furry Cuddles and Snuggles
The fall/ winter 2016 collections are also to offer a safe haven for arctic habitants and not only. Furry cuddles and snuggles were happening on the runways of late with thongs of furry hats of different designs carrying out a frantic invasion and promising not one iota of cold passing through.
For the most part we saw ushanka style furry hats with flaps hanging out on both sides like at Sonia Rykiel, for instance, where they might even at times pass off as hair wigs, while at Vika Gazinskaya sheepskin trooper hats in ivory, grey and even green were delivered.
At Louis Vuitton the flaps of black high-reaching trooper hats were not hanging down but sticking out to both sides as if frozen and at Anya Hindmarch a couple of childish flapped hats showed up with bear ears atop. Blumarine’s furry headwear numbers were hugging heads with flaps cozily fastened at the chin; at Ermanno Scervino face-framing charmers were at focal point, while at Kate Spade and Valentin Yudashkin fur round hats were playing first fiddle.
#5. All Types of Caps: Flat, Newsboy & Baseball
Albeit this two similar style caps with overall shape and a small visor in front were originally under masculine thumbs, the androgynous fashion surge nowadays has already given the women wide liberty to use them as well. When searching for the ideally-autumn-befitting headwear type, think no further than these two hooligan styles that will perfectly go with your ripped jeans + chunky knitted sweater combo, while some cool sneakers and a pair of sunglasses added will make you a real street-style adept.
Need some fresh samples for the future? The fall 2016 headwear trends have them in abundance, in different designs and tailored out of various materials. Ranging from leather tough newsboy caps at Moschino with some metallic chain decorations to them to those tweed or suede flat versions at Polo Ralph Lauren, this awesome fall 2016 headwear trend is best fitted for working out a badass assemblage.
#6. British Bowlers and Trilbies
Bowler and trilby hats, both amounting to the narrow-brimmed and round top category (only trilby has an angled-down brim in the front), have British origins and masculine roots to them and were frequenters at the fall/ winter 2016 runways shows. Are you at sea how to wear them? It’s sufficient to bring to mind Charlie Chaplin’s tramp costume with a rounded black bowler always there on his head and you will immediately decide on how to best match your bowler hat.
Just a front-pleated pair of classic black trousers or a simple blazer is enough to work like a charm with your bowler or derby hat especially as you have those amazing ones at Emporio Armani with triangular cutouts on them. But even more zero cool bowler-wearing tips are suggested by Polo Ralph Lauren – to try on a masculine striped three-piece suit, let your tousled blonde hair down and finish off the whole pulchritude with a bowler hat.
Delve further into the fall 2016 collections to unearth bowlers with furry pompoms at Monclear Gamme Rouge and trilby hats with a single fabric flower attached to them at Diane von Furstenberg.
#7. Brims Upwards or Downwards? Sailor Caps vs. Bucket Hats
Sailor caps or bucket hats? This might come out as the major dilemma for the upcoming season that you should solve fast and furious, though why solve it if you can make a lemon out of a lemonade, namely, getting hands on both of them and feeling as the best hat-equipped girl in town.
Given that the rebellious and adventuresome woman type was in the prime focus of the fall/ winter 2016-2017 fashion trends, the on-and-off appearance of sailor caps and bucket hats on the runways was more than scheduled.
While the versatile bucket hats are so easy to match with nigh anything and to tout them from city streets to beach sands, sailor caps are limited to some cruise voyages unless you are not the woman type feeling the world being your oyster. We are firmly giving these two headwear types a special place on our list of the best fall/ winter 2016-2017 headwear trends.
Ranging from Iceberg’s monochromatic and printed bucket hats against the models’ beachcomber outfits and Trina Turk’s vibrant ones perfectly cooperating with genuinely-feminine outfits to those white and navy blue sailor caps happening at every turn on Prada’s vagabonding models, we are saying a strong Yes to adopting both of these styles and giving them a peaceful symbiosis somewhere in our wardrobes.
#8. Floppy Hats, Pork Pie Hats and Other Brimmed Versions
Apart from fedoras, bowlers and trilby hats, the fall/ winter 2016-2017 headwear trends have also treated us to a range of other brimmed versions including wide-brimmed floppy hats, pork pie styles with narrow curled-up brims, some western and classic styles and others. Want to know the one feature combining them all apart from the brims? It’s trying them on and grinning like a Cheshire Cat all the while.
We like across the tweed, denim and leather pork pie hats at Chanel with leather and pearly straps under the chin. Equally do we like mysteriously flopping wide-brimmed black hats at Elie Saab and that single wizard top hat at Moschino albeit with semi-burnt texture.
The classic brimmed hats at Gucci and H&M with high rounded tops whether in vibrant or muted shades are cream of the crop in this brimmed festival especially as long tousled hair is cascading down. Brimmed hats have also been spotted at Vivienne Westwood, Ralph Lauren, Ace & Jig, Alice + Olivia, Manish Arora, Mara Hoffman and many others.
#9. Those Cute Hats with Strings
While other fashionistas are planning to hit the city streets with fedoras, ushankas or berets in six months or so, there is an excellent chance for you to be ahead of the curve via those cute hats with strings falling down on both sides. Whether they are knitted Peruvians or just simple brimmed hats or maybe baseball caps, those strings always spread cute vibes around.
Cases in point are the pretty printed hats in the Anna Sui fall 2016 RTW collection that are showing off braided strings swinging. At Gucci we see not only knitted Peruvians but also brimmed hats and baseball caps with playful tasseled strings dropping down. Some strings can be observed at H&M as well.
#10: Net-Veiled Hats
Elegant and mysterious net-veiled hats are perhaps the most feminine hat type on our list of the fall/ winter 2016-2017 headwear trends, being perfect details to finish off your formal outfits for wedding parties or a cozy soirée. Gucci had fun with net-veiled hats playing with different bright colors from turquoise to fuchsia, while Isabel Marant added sparkling stars to the black veil attached to the tiny hat.
#11. Sportive Hoods
Though these two headwear types, borrowed from the sports world or rap music industry (call it however you want), did not appear so frequently on the fall 2016 runways as other styles did, we just cannot resist temptation calling them another cool headwear trend of the upcoming chilly seasons.
At Alexander Wang and Fenty x Puma hooded baggy sweaters are more often than not paired with beanies underneath, while the hoods and baseball caps are alternating each other regularly at Vetements. We see a range of slovenly hooded sweaters at Yeezy as well either worn on head or left to hang nonchalantly from behind.
#12. Bizarre Headwear Pieces
While presenting their fall 2016 collections some of the fashion designers preferred to show off their artistic essences not in regular ways but going more and more bizarre. Whether they would help you positively stand out in the crowd or meet your Waterloo, they deserve your special attention and the last place in our fall 2016 headwear trends.
From Junya Watanabe’s geometric strange creatures and Sibling’s sparkling purple helmets to a Halloween-worthy high-reaching sharp hat at Vivienne Westwood and a houndstooth fringed one at Dolce & Gabbana, we are time and time again taken aback by the designers’ inexhaustible imagination.
