I never thought I would say this but I am a tiny bit bored with clothes right now….I don’t bother much lately and tend to wear either “uniforms” (well rehearsed outfits) or all black. I fancy accessories though, seasonal ones, like hats, scarves, gloves, etc.qu-16-39-mi-25_5_301101

I love huge scarves and I would like to own a pair of long leather gloves. I rather fancy a hat as well, a classic fedora felt hat. The thing is, accessories do make the difference in an outfit, they finish the look and can make it soooo chic. Big scarves make one look extremely cool, leather gloves are just so “lady-like” and hats, well, hats add the right attitude, the kind  “don’t mess with me” attitude….

Here’s a selection:


My favourite sets are: hat by 8/Fedora’s, burgundy gloves and herringbone scarf.

Or, black Fedora with gauntlet gloves and any scarf.

I really quite fancy the Wilfred Free knitted scarf with the wide brim hat, grey hat and any gloves

…and I reckon the white scarf looks great with black hat + black gloves (but I don’t wear white….)

By it does depend on what your coat/jacket looks like too…

Straw hats

I have taken to wearing a hat. I am just about desperate, the heat is unbearable… I am trying to hide under everything possible…


I still think one ought to be stylish at all costs…

I don’t love the wide brim really, I prefer something a bit more subtle. I don’t like the “floppy” type either. So, here’s what I do like:

This is my favourite one (picture’s a bit small, sorry)



But I find this one very chic too:

I guess the fedora type of hat is my kind of thing…




And all of these:

If you really want to be a diva, here’s a couple of wider brimmed hats:

Otherwise, one could go for just a visor:

Here’s also a rather intriguing one, for the more flamboyants of us:

Last, something a little unusual:

Do make sure your hat is going to be made of natural fibres, or you will end up feeling hotter than without one… I have done it.
