“Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and remove one accessory.” -Coco Chanel I have only recently taken heed to this fashionably-celebrated idea of Coco Chanel. While in my teen years I remember over-accesorising to compensate for my insecurities. … Continue reading
The more I distance myself from black as a staple, the more I realise that there is an abundance of unexplored territory when it comes to neutrals; like when I converted to pescetarianism and discovered a world beyond meat. My … Continue reading
Being back in Sydney for a short trip gave me the opportunity to capture some moments from Sydney Festival at Hyde Park. A bit dressed-up because I was heading out with friends after! For someone who takes their fashion quite … Continue reading
Recently, I participated in the Femina Style Dive Bangalore contest. It gave us the opportunity to showcase our styling skills on a daily basis! I wish I had taken more pics from other days but the schedule was pretty hectic! I’m really … Continue reading
New Year’s Eve (NYE), in my opinion, is the most exciting night in terms of styling and fashion. No outfit is too eccentric or over-the-top. Whether you’re staying home or heading to the most happening gig in town, you have … Continue reading
Maroon, not to be confused with red, plum or wine, is making scattered appearances on runways, red carpet and the street! The trend which was embraced by all, only a few years ago, has made a come back to garner … Continue reading
In a fashion era in which we have such a huge contingent of brands and designers to draw upon for inspiration and expression, only a few manage to really claim the limelight for their creativity and originality. One such designer … Continue reading
As life experiences make me wiser and more in-touch with who I am, I realise that my style and clothing increasingly (albeit unintentionally) reflect MY moods and personality. In fact, being accepted, even appreciated for my individuality is much more important … Continue reading
It wasn’t too long ago that this trend was considered a cheap and vulgar faux pas but the dictators of fashion have spoken (in this case Burberry), sparking a metallic craze that has lasted much longer than I had envisioned, … Continue reading
You may have seen a fedora on someone and admired it, but thought its probably not your cup-of-tea; or you may have bought one, tried it on a million times but never garnered the confidence to wear it out. But I can guarantee, that one successful fedora-day will have you buying them in all variations of colours and textures.
Whether it have a functional purpose like sun-protection, covering-up a bad hair day or hiding your face (reserved for the celebs) or used solely as an accessory, fedora’s have engulfed the fashion-scene in recent times. The fedora trend hasn’t spared men, women or celebrities alike and like many trends recently, this one too, is quite versatile.
The fedora was seen all over the streets this year. Variations of the fedora spread as far as the imagination including felt, straw and leather, in numerous colours. My personal favourites are the felt fedoras in maroon and beige!
We have seen Johnny Depp in multiple fedora avatars over the years, usually paired with on-trend glasses and dishevelled hair. In my opinion if there is only one celebrity that can match Depp on the drool-o-meter when it comes to fedora’s; Matt Bomer of White Collar fame, who has a new one to flaunt in each episode to frame those deep blue eyes.
The women prefer the fedora-with-sunnies look and I personally prefer the hair worn out or in a low ponytail. I’m not too sure about Beyonce’s look here; I don’t think it flatters her face but Rosie Huntington-Whiteley pulls a quintessential fedora-face.
Get experimenting with those fedora’s now!
