Our Favorite Hats For Summer

Hats are always one of my go-to accessories no matter what season it is. They can really add that extra touch and complete an outfit — not to mention they are perfect to throw on if your hair isn’t quite up to par in the morning. In the winter, I’m all about the beanies. During the summertime, wide brims are my favorite. They can keep you cool and shade your face from the sun, so the wider the better in my opinion!  We have a handful of hats online right now that are made out of lightweight materials in fun shapes, so I wanted to show how I would style three of my favorites:

A Loving Tribute To The Beanie

A beanie is an essential for winter, it keeps your head toasty and it looks super cute, too! It goes with anything and is perfect for long walks outside. We’re grateful that there is such a wide range of styles out there, in color, texture, and structure. We love wearing them with sweaters, with leather jackets, with coats, with tees, with dresses…absolutely anything. Read More

Our Favorite Hats For Fall

I am 100% a summer person but I will say that I love fall fashion and one of the major components that comes with it – hats! It’s just too hot to wear hats most of the time in the summer, and this time of year there are so many awesome options to cover your head with and keep cozy. Here are some of our favorite hats this season! Read More

Braving the Elements

Sometimes, as winter blankets our surroundings with its bitter chill, it’s tough to stay fashionably motivated. Rising out of bed in the morning involves a laborious upheaval from an all-too-comfortable toasty nest. The last thing you want to do is spend time, half-naked in a drafty bedroom, pulling an outfit together. It tends to turn into, “grab the first items in your drawer, and pile them on as fast as you can.”

To dress well as the air gets chillier though, we’ve come to realize that the under layer becomes less important. To pull off a great look that won’t leave you freezing, it’s all about that top winter layer. Here, some of the Free People girls show us how to move into the new season while keeping it fresh with a few of our favorite jackets. They remind us that a good scarf and hat can go a long way to trap in heat, and, don’t forget, the season’s must-have item – a pair of killer close-toed boots. All of these things – jacket, boots, and winter accessories – will help you bring those easy under layers into the new season.

So chill and relaxed! Our sweater designer is wearing: The Vintage Wine Leather Jacket, Pink Floyd Tee, Joan of Arctic Boot, Loop Knit Beanie, Crystal Honeycomb Bib necklace, and her own pants.

Details: Hair Style

I always find so much hair inspiration here in the office – we have girls who are experts at perfecting their ‘do.  It’s funny though, I think about half of the girls whose hair I took a photo of said they were having a bad hair day – but I think they all look awesome! That’s what is so great about things like hats, turbans, twists and cute little buns on top of your head – you may think you’re having a bad hair day but to everyone else you look completely put together and fashionable.

brand we love: hollywood trading

i couldn’t help myself, i had to do a post about these amazing pieces that we are carrying by hollywood trading. born out of a love for vintage handmade american leather belts, the company has evolved to carry accessories and apparel for men and women with an aesthetic that is heavily vintage inspired, handmade and rough hewn. personally, i’m a sucker for straw hats and these two are quite special with features like hand-painting, hand-tooled leather, metal and stud details, and they are made out of hemp and canapa. love!
