Ear cuffs are having a moment and I gotta say, I’m kind of into it! I used to be a total earring fanatic but in the past few years they’ve taken a hiatus from my wardrobe. I often feel a little too “done up” when I wear earrings, though they are a perfect way to make a glamorous statement.

These ear cuffs, however, are making me rethink the aforementioned earring absence. I love how, like earrings, they can be big and bold or delicate and elegant, adding just a touch of edge to any look. I just bought this set of 3 ear cuffs and can’t wait to try them out with minimalistic outfits like a crisp white dress and simple pair of pumps. A white dress will require some sort of tan at this point, so I guess I’ll be self-tanning this weekend…

Out on a Brim

December 16, 2010

Yesterday as I was doing some of my Christmas shopping at All Saints I couldn’t help but try on their Salerno Fedora, a perfectly sculpted menswear inspired hat that I ended up wearing around the store while shopping for friends and family. I didn’t end up buying it which I now kind of regret, but it reminded me just how much I love a good fedora. In the summertime I’m rarely seen without one of my straw ones (see here), and in the fall/winter I find nothing adds texture to a bundled up look quite like my vintage felt fedora.

While some trends may come and go, the fedora trend has stood the trend test of time in womens wear. In 1937 silver screen siren Carole Lombard looked particularly fantastic wearing a fur fedora (see below), and today it’s impossible to browse through a street style blog or tabloid magazine without seeing at least one style icon sporting one of these gangster-inspired hats. So, in my efforts to find new ways to wear my fedoras instead of buying a new one, here are some sartorial inspirations for rocking these ever popular sturdy brimmed, wooly felt hats.
