When the fedora trend started kicking in, I have to admit I had mixed feelings. Initially I was intimidated to try it because I felt I never look good in hats and I had no idea what occasion I would wear it. Then, curiosity got the best of me and I bought one! I’m not sure about you, but I get excited when I buy something new and out of my comfort zone.

The fedora is great for fall and winter. I wore mine to our favorite local restaurant for the first time and paired it with jeans, The Regan Boot in taupe from Madewell(currently 30% off), a slouchy sweater from VICI, a sweater jacket from Anthro (sorry, it’s sold out) and my favorite earrings from Nickel & Suede. I chose the Olive Trimmed Fedora from Anthropologie for $58. It comes in cedar, raspberry and green. The raspberry hat was my favorite color, but as this was my first ever fedora, I picked a more versatile choice, the cedar. As a side note, fedoras tend to feel “loose” on your head. That is normal and part of the fit.
We should all reach beyond our comfort zone to explore new things and find new confidence. Get that fedora!
