Layers. This woman’s look is all about the layers from her hair to the outfit. But thing is, the hat steals the show. Today, the hat is such a focal point. Even in hand, her chartreuse and rose bowler hat overshadows the ensemble. Aside from it’s pop of colour against a black and white canvas, the hat is so other. No longer do you have to cover your head to leave the house, and the hat has suffered it’s fall from the height of fashion.
The hat has now become a true mark of sartorial flavour. Someone wearing one assumes a role, a cool attitude. I’ve never felt comfortable wearing a hat, but what I love about this woman is that neither is she. Here the bowler is a prop and it still works.
