The hat ....

             Tell me what hat are you wearing and i will tell you what style should you try. Today i'm fond of hats...maybe it's the weather outside, or maybe it's just the feeling i had when seeing a friend wearing a beautiful fedora hat.
             There is an old saying: " if you want to get ahead and get noticed, get a hat! "
             Have you ever felt like you really want something that could set you apart from the crowd? Well...this is a question that even Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel put herself when started designing hats for Parisian women.
             In the pictures below, i tried to create 3 looks for 3 different hats : fedora, beret, cloche. So if you want a soft feminine look , just try the 1920 cloche with a nice fitted dress , you should not forget about the pearls...
              Fedora hat is used more to finish off a menswear look, but i tried to get a look of a voyage lady...Louis Lane, a journalist that always came with the biggest news.
              And the beret....the french beret ... for some city girls...that like the coffee shop chic look, maybe a writer that does her stuff sorounded by people that have their breakfast in some coffee shop...
              Hope you like it...and also i hope i've inspired you somehow !!!!
