Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you all have had a wonderful holiday weekend and are gearing up for the unfortunate return to reality tomorrow. Charlie and I had a great time with our family. Everyone’s back home now and it’s quiet around here again. We’ve already started decorating for Christmas and are mostly finished. Waste no time! 😉 I’m a Christmas freak (another trait I got from my momma) so it’s suuuper hard for me to wait until Thanksgiving to put up Christmas decorations. But I’m also one of those people that’s like “let’s take it one holiday at a time.” I dunno, it just feels a little less like Thanksgiving if the Christmas tree is up, ya know? But the older I get the more I’m like “we should enjoy Christmas for as long as possible!” Haha. Are you a Christmas tree up before or after Thanksgiving kind of person?
The baker boy hat (fisherman hat, newsboy cap, whatever you call it) popped on the scene last winter and I struggled with it. I really liked the trend but I struggled finding the right hat for me – particularly one that I felt looked good on me. But when I saw that it was super popular again this year, I decided I was determined to find a baker boy hat that I liked and I finally did!
So, the first step to styling a baker boy hat is to make sure you find one that you feel like flatters you. 😛 In all seriousness though, with all things in fashion and style, if you’re not happy how you look in it, you’re not going to be confident and will therefore struggle pulling it off. So, now that you have your proper fitting baker boy hat, let’s style it, shall we?
I looove this one that my mom spoiled me with. It has a subtle herringbone pattern and is a perfect shade of charcoal that will go with everything! I wanted to style the baker boy hat in an outfit that was more city inspired. I went for a sleek, slightly edgy look with a leather skirt. A leather skirt has all kinds of edgy, city vibes so it seemed like a perfect match.
I wore a crisp charcoal grey tunic sweater to pull out the grey in the hat and to keep it feeling a little more casual. A leather skirt is pretty saucy, but a baker boy hat leans more casual, so the sweater was a great way to tie the two things together. To finish everything off I wore a pair of sheer black tights, black ankle boots, my black quilted leather bag, a pair of silver hoops, and a dark lip.
I hope you guys enjoyed this edgier look! It’s a great monochromatic and trendy outfit for that fall to winter transition. How would you style the baker boy hat trend? Thanks for reading friends! I’ll see you again soon. 😉
