Fashion Week 4 years ago
Fashion should never be taken too seriously. It should be a way for you to express yourself and how you’re currently feeling. Although I love my sleek and simple looks, I always make an effort to try something new and out of the ordinary. It’s easy to get stuck in a fashion rut, but trying something new always keeps things exciting and fresh! Which beings me to the main point of this post … a hat! Believe it or not, a few years ago I was very self-conscious about wearing hats. A hat is an awesome accessory but it took me a while to find that level of confidence to rock one in public. I’ve obviously overcome that fear as I’ve been rocking hats for the past 5 years. I think hats are having a major moment right now and that they can truly bring a look together.
When I tried this outfit on at my Tommy Hilfiger fitting, I loved the look but I felt like there was something missing. But when I spotted this newsboy(ish) hat out of the corner of my eye and tried it on, the outfit truly came to life. It’s funny how a single accessory can make the biggest difference right? If you haven’t noticed, I’ve been really into newsboy caps and berets lately and I highly encourage you to try one on with your next outfit! It could be as simple as a pair of jeans and a sweater topped with a cute little hat.
This was definitely one of my favorite outfits from the week because of the amount of whimsy and playfulness it had. It also went perfectly with the nautical theme of the Tommy Hilfiger FW 2016 show (which was epic btw). I also added this cute little clutch with a face on it from Ines Gigaredo (similar here!) and these funky Dries Van Noten shoes with a hot pink block heel. I had so much fun hanging out with my girls Amiee Song & Irene Kim after the show, too!
It’s all about the accessories when it comes to creating unique and memorable outfits like this one. Take a risk and try something new this week! Who knows … You might end up loving it!
