Loving Fall Hats

Fall is by far my favorite time of the year for fashion. The layering, the autumn-y colors, the comfy corduroy, the hats!

Yet every winter I am astounded at the number of ADULTS who don't wear hats. I do remember being a preteen and - along with all my friends - not wanting to wear a hat. Maybe we were rebelling against the advice of our parents, creating our own individuality by forgoing headwear. Maybe a hat wouldn't go so well with all the hair spray in our gravity defining hairstyles (you know which ones I mean). Whichever. That whole phase didn't last very long for me. Probably because I am one of those people who is cold all the time (you lose most of your body heat through your head), I never really bought into that. I love me some hats.

The designers really brought out some great hats for Fall. I really loved Carolina Herrera's collection. Her collection was a great mix of tweed, velvet and corduroy . . . and plenty of hats.

And like the good eco-fashionista that I am, I have been looking for the perfect vintage Robin Hood-esque fedora (with feather, of course!). Here are some I like from Etsy (click photos to be taken to the Etsy sale site):

(would need to add a feather to this one).

I too am loving all the fall hats! I think it's one of the perks of the weather getting colder! I esp LOVED the very first one you posted!! That long feather just makes it!!
