How to Style: The Floppy Hat

The floppy hat has become a must-have accessory for summer, if it isn’t Made in Chelsea star Millie Mackintosh rocking the cartazi with an all-black ensemble then it’s Beyonce styling a fedora with silver reflective sunglasses. Everywhere you turn, the floppy hat is making its mark on the fashion world. Find out how to style this year’s most covetable trend with Fiorelli.

Bohemian Chic

There’s no denying that the floppy hat trend is most commonly associated with music festivals. Floppy hats just work so well paired with free flowing kimonos, heavy jewellery and a pair of wayfarers. Even the most sophisticated outfit can be given a bohemian update with the help of a felt floppy hat or cartazi.

The City Slicker

London is going headwear crazy, and hats are leading the way. From fedoras paired with feathers to trilbies styled with jeans and a leather jacket, it’s all about the hat. Millie Mackintosh has got the city slicker look down to a tee with her casual cool dress sense. And as well as being something of a style icon, Mackintosh is also queen of the floppy hat. 

A quick peek at the socialite’s personal Instagram account returns numerous photos of Mackintosh championing the floppy hat. Take the above photo for example; Mackintosh makes the floppy hat trend look effortless with knee high boots, a fur coat, leather trousers and a statement bag adding a welcome pop of colour.

Emulate the look with your very own monochrome ensemble; we suggest teaming your outfit with a colourful handbag such as the Fiorelli Mini Harper in Pale Sky to add a statement pop of colour.

Fedora Trend
Wearing a fedora is a simple way to work the androgynous look. Queen of pop Beyoncé looks effortless pictured here in loafers, patterned trousers, John Lennon style sunglasses, a blazer and of course, a wide brim fedora.

Style yours with boyish brogues and a t-shirt dress for a neutral mix of feminine and masculine or go for leather with a structured blazer, oversized shirt and tapered jeans.
