When the air starts cooling off, the best way to heat up your style is with a trendy hat.
Truth be told, having hat hair isn’t something you need to avoid. Fashionistas like Vanessa Hudgens, Kate Hudson, Taylor Swift, and Cara Delevingne have already been spotted sporting hats this fall and it looks like the trend is here to stay through the winter (or longer!)
From braids and messy buns to wavy or straight, there are dozens of styles to wear while keeping your head cozy and warm.
Creative + Mysterious: long, messy highlights with a snappy fedora.
On a windy day, there’s no better way to look put together than a fashionable fedora holding your loose messy waves in place. Instead of blaming the fall breeze, you can embrace it with this adorable yet classic look.
On the plus side, if you haven’t had the chance to touch up those roots since saying good-bye to summer, the fedora doubles as camouflage until you make an appointment with your colorist.
Festival Frocks: flower crown with Rapunzel-length locks
Mermaid hair is here to stay, and if you can’t bear to see festival season come to a close, then don’t let it! Weave your own flower crowns using autumnal accents and embrace the seasonal change without sacrificing boho style.
Bonus: this gorgeous approach to fall fashion works for formal events as well, so if you have a daytime wedding or party to attend, try it out and be prepared for jaws to drop!
Gothic + Chic: platinum shoulder-length chop with wide brim wool hat
You don’t have to go all black with your wardrobe, but this stunning juxtaposition of platinum blonde hair bluntly cut at shoulder-length against a Gothic-inspired outfit simply screams style. If chilly days and dark nights sound like your perfect style inspiration, then why not go all out mysterious?
Timeless Fashion: short curls peeking under a knitted cloche
Anyone with short hair should have a cloche on hand to wear with their pea coat, cape, shawl, or dress coat. This 1940s look adds the perfect modern nod to this ultra-sophisticated trend. Add some red lipstick and you’ll look like you just stepped off the set of Downton Abbey.
Anyone who ever thought hats were a recipe for hat hair never realized their potential. Hats do more than cover up from the outside elements; they hide roots, bedhead, unwashed hair and even a bad haircut.
No matter how you wear your hair or which hat you choose, the trend will effortlessly enhance your style.
