Outfit of the Day: The Big Massive Fedora

OOTD 30th N CollageSo I recently decided to branch out a bit and buy myself a fedora. I’d seen them gracing the heads of many a fashionista and thought, yeah, let’s give that a go. However because I am an IDIOT I failed to buy one of the reasonably sized fedoras that the likes of Lily Melrose have been sporting,and instead accidentally ordered this massive hat from eBay. Honestly, it looks like a frickin’ sombrero.

While I do enjoy the drama that the big massive hat brings to an outfit – imagine, for example, how emotional my train station goodbyes would look if I wore this – I’m unconvinced of the ultimate wearability of the big massive hat. I mean, will my head even fit in my car?

What do you all think of the fedora trend? Do you have any tips on how to wear them?

      Aw thanks Jess, you look absolutely lovely in yours! Maybe I just need to brave it outside, luckily the brim is so wide I probably won’t see any funny look anyway 😉 xx

    Haha you work that sombrero girl!! I kind of love it, but if it was me I’d be terrified to wear it…and yes fitting in the car may be a challenge :p
    Your figure is stunning by the way! I really want one of those dresses ahhh…

    I’ve got that exact hat saved on eBay, I don’t think it’s too big at all. Looks great

      Ah, you should bite the bullet and get it too! The general consensus is that it’s not too big, I may slowly come round to it… xx
