The Structured Hat: A Hot Trend for Fall

NordstromHat lovers, rejoice! Fall brings with it a multitude of structured hats that will add instant style to your ensemble.

I love this spread in Nordstrom's recent catalog, which gives you a great idea of the types of hats that are hot for fall. The fedora is still more than acceptable, but if you really want to be at the forefront of fasion, buy yourself a cloche hat.

White House Black MarketI'm dying a little inside over this lovely wool contrast trim cloche hat (White House Black Market, $58). Isn't it absolutely gorgeous?


Cloche HatBut you don't have to spend a fortune to get the look. Target is also carrying several different cloche hats this fall, including this Mossimo felt cloche (Target, $14.99).


ClocheIt's okay to stray from boring black... I love the thirties working girl-feel of this Parkhurst Lorelei wool cloche (Lord & Taylor, $58).

Are you more of a fedora type? I've got you covered!


NordstromTake a walk on the wild side with this Tarnish asymmetrical animal print fedora (Nordstrom, $75). I'd be a little bit afraid to try this hat personally, but the model in the Nordstrom picture above totally works it!


FedoraBanana Republic's version of the fedora certainly takes on a more grown-up feel. This bow fedora (Banana Republic, $49.50) would definitely up your style ante.


FedoraWant to score this look on a budget? How about this Nine West Fedora (Macy's, $38), which also comes in gray and black? I love the brim of this particular hat.

Will you sport a structure chapeau this fall? I know I will- I still have a pretty cloche hat from a few (well, more than a few) years ago!
