Rachel of Rachel's Lookbook
Where would you wear this look? Rachel: I would wear this outfit to the flea market or out for a lunch date with one of my girlfriends. This hat adds the perfect touch of color to tie the outfit together, and it is definitely something I'd want to wear while having a fun day with my girlfriends. What is your favorite way to style hats this season? Rachel: Pairing a fedora or Panama hat with a crisp white oxford, a statement necklace, a pair of dark wash skinny jeans or shorts, and strappy wedges is a perfect way to wear a hat this season. I think this combination is very simple and classic, but the hat and statement necklace add just enough to make the outfit fashion-forward and fresh. Which of our hats best fits your personal style? Rachel: The Stitch Hats Jane Straw Fedora definitely encompasses all of the characteristics I would use to define my personal style. The fedora is a classic hat, but this one has those extra details that I like to include in my own personal style, whether with a great pair of heels or statement bag. I am always looking for ways to keep things simple and classic but with added excitement. I love the detailing of the bow and around the rim. I would pair this with a white T-shirt, coral jeans, and strappy wedges. What is your favorite summer hairstyle? Rachel: A simple braid on one or both sides of your head pulled back with a bobby pin. It is the perfect way to add some interest to your hairstyle for summer. The best part is how easy it is to do and that it helps keep hair out of your face. Lauren Conrad is the queen of this hairstyle, and ever since seeing her wear it on The Hills, I had to do it for myself. Now I wear it all the time!
Ash of Anything and Everything LA
Where would you wear this look? Ash: I would wear this look for visiting cafes and shopping with Blake. What is your favorite way to style hats this season? Ash: This season, I am loving hats to play down otherwise dressy looks. I love to pair them with an embellished skirt and tee or a pant suit and some killer heels.
Which of our hats best fits your personal style? Ash: Your fedoras. I’m especially loving the Indiana Jones collection, along with the Stetson and Bailey of Hollywood. These styles are so versatile and could be paired with a billowy dress or vintage denim. What is your favorite summer hairstyle? Ash: My favorite summer hairstyles are tousled beachy waves (hello, Cali girl) for every day and loose braids to get me through those wicked hot days in L.A.
