I’ve been forgetting about my fall hats and only pulled one out when I put on my new flannel button down last week! The navies (is that right word for the color?) matched perfectly and now I’m ready for all the fall hat outfit ideas!
I basically lived in 2 hats this summer. The one seen in this quality clothes post is stylish but also functional. This beautiful wide-brimmed hat is decidedly less functional but chic as all get out!
Alas. It’s time for cooler weather and a different style of hat. To me, fall screams felt hats and fun berets (don’t run for the hills – they’re great – just look at this ensemble!).
Fall Hat Outfit
When selecting a fall hat (before the outfit is even a consideration), I’d encourage you to pick a neutral tone (I include navy in that) or a muted pop of color (like this one!)
Of course knowing that my style is primarily made up of muted tones, both color groups match my wardrobe. If you like to wear a lot of color, however, I’d go with a black or neutral tan to get the most bang for your buck!

How to wear Hats
I seriously thought I was the last one to the hat party. But I can’t tell you how many people I know who say that they can’t wear hats – just like I used to think.
I think it just comes with getting used to it! When I first started wearing hats, it was only with a single side braid. Then I only did it with my hair down and curled. And now. I’ll throw it on with a messy low bun, straight hair, wet hair, you name it!
You really have to start with the one tried-and-true look. Then you’ll start to feel more comfortable with different styles and outfits!
Chic Women’s Flannel
This button down is another one from my favorite brand Grayson. It has the look of a flannel and it’s thicker than their other materials, but it isn’t super thick and is the perfect fall top – for fun and work!
Traveling? See how to easily pack hats in your suitcase without them losing shape!
