Fedoras > The Timeless Look for Today's "It" Fashion Accessory

Monday, July 26, 2010

Fedora hats are everywhere this summer from coast to coast....  the perfect fashion accessory that can change the overall of a look with the angled placement of the brim.  Styles range in price depending on materials used in construction and can be found for purchase thru the street vendors in NYC to the higher end designer boutiques. Traditionally a man's tailored accessory, women have incorporated the Fedora for casual to sleek looks.  The market seems to be saturated with Fedoras, one would think its time is up on the fashion stage, but this timeless design will always have its place among the trend setting and head turning fashionistas.
