Yeah, we said it: Beyonce has shown us how to rock the Fedora hat without looking silly. But don’t get it twisted. The Fedora hat was originally introduced in 1882 as a female hat. So the fact that women, such as Queen Bey, are rocking the male-adopted hat trend better than men themselves is no surprise.
First introduced in felt material, the straw/cotton blend Fedoras, usually found in the tan color, has become a summer staple. A necessity for sun protection (and bad hair days), we actually like the trendy hat. But, for some reason, the Fedora has been getting slack. Regardless of any criticism, there are many fashion tricks to making the Fedora look fly and Bey pulled three of them out of her fashion bag.
That time she showed us how to class it up:
There’s nothing classier than a good all white ensemble topped off by the perfect accessory. Here, Beyonce played around with a lunch date look with an added touch of power: the eye-catching Fedora. We can’t rock the jacket this season. But, we can take a hint at how to add a little pizazz to our “all white everything” brunch look.
That time she kept it summertime fine:
It’s all about that outfit that couldn’t mind using a little “Hello, I’m here” touch to it. Her top is snazzy; the pants are basic. But, it’s something about the hat that just makes you say, “Okay, now we’re ready.
That time she showed us how to cover up a bad hair day:
We’re not assuming she was having one. But, the lax harem pants and loose fitting top make for a perfect outfit for women hiding a bad hair moment. It’s like, you’re not drawing too much attention to yourself, but you also still look like you cared just a tiny bit. The icing on the cake: a pop of color down below. No one will care about your hair if your shoes are drawing their attention.
