What I Wore - Halloween Fedora

Saturday, November 05, 2011


So I've really been on this huge hat kick this Fall. It started with a random trip to Target in which my eye caught a burgundy cloche.  Then perusing blogs I saw a lot of cute looks with bowlers and fedoras.  Now I already owned an actual fedora but it's a pinstripe gangsta one from a Halloween costume, and I never wear it outside of with that costume...so I wanted a real one.  I've been in love with Fedora's forever. I'm a huge Frank Sinatra fan, a big fan of movies from the '40s, and of course a fan of the Original Gangster looks with the Tommy guns.  During lunch on Friday before Halloween I shopped at Burlington and picked up this Fedora.  It came with feathers which I really didn't like, but this one fit the best. I have since taken the feathers out of this hat, as you've seen during it's debut in some of my posts earlier this week.

Ensemble
Hat: Burlington
Black Sports Over-Top: New York & Company
Burnt Orange Lace Cami: New York & Company
Jeans: Old Navy
Boots: Cavender's Boot City
Trench Coat: New York & Company

Of course since it was Halloween weekend I had to wear orange and black! Also this particular Friday it was a bit brisk for Houston in October, so I was wearing long sleeves and a trench. With the addition of the trench to my outfit I felt a bit like Inspector Gadget or Dick Tracy.  Also it's pretty clear that I've had an obsession with wearing my cowboy boots over the past few weeks.





How would you wear a Fedora?

  4. Haha! :) This is such a cute outfit for Halloween. I love the look of fedoras. I think they also go great with casual outfits, like a pair of skinny jeans, a chunky sweater and some curls in your hair, to make the outfit a bit more interesting.
    Love your idea! :)
