Fall Hats You'll Love
Colorful knit caps are perfect for fall. They keep your head warm on cool mornings, hide frizzy hair and add a splash of color to you almost-always black wardrobe. Ideal for casual wear, a knit beanie will look great with your favorite jeans and sweaters this season. This bold orange knit beanie (ASOS, $10) will definitely turn some heads.
A slouchy beret is also a terrific casual option for fall. Look for knit berets in shades of yellow, green, burgundy and gray this year. We love the Pins and Needles marled beret (Urban Outfitters, $13) in neon yellow. This beret is eye-catching without being too bright. If you are looking for something a little more traditional, this unisex wool beret (American Apparel, $24) offers classic styling and comes in your choice of 14 colors.
Fedoras come and go in the fashion scene and this fall, we are going to see a lot more of them -- especially teamed up with menswear-inspired fashions. If you aren't sure how often you are going to rock a hat, don't spend a bundle on one. You can find a number of very affordably priced hats in cool styles. You'll adore this red wool fedora (Forever 21, $15) with its classic styling, grosgrain band and bow and low price point.
Downton Abbey-inspired cloche hats are all the rage. These hats were a staple accessory for women during the World War I era. Check out this Nine West wool cloche (Macy's, $20) with its floral accent for an ultra-feminine touch.
With all the wool, herringbone, tweed and other fall classics, the newsboy cap fits right in. You can wear a newsboy cap with everything from a trenchcoat, sweater dress and boots to a riding jacket and skinny jeans. Snag the Candie's houndstooth newsboy hat (Kohl's, $20) on sale.
In the Marc Jacobs fall 2012 collection, we saw some over-the-top, extra large, Dr. Seuss-like fur hats. Though we aren't suggesting you get that kooky, playful fur hats will be popular this fall and winter. Check out the David & Young faux fur trapper hat (Macy's $20) to keep you warm when the temperatures drop this fall.
