Fedora Made Feminine

While many of us think of a fedora as menswear, it’s fun to mix it up and create a feminine take on a classic menswear look.

I hand dyed this dark blue and camel straw early this year and purposely let the blue bleed into the camel color. When I was ready to block the hat into a shape, I decided on a fedora style because I liked the idea of the organic shape the dye created in contrast with the structured shape of a fedora.

Now this is not a classic fedora with a pinched crown; this one has an asymmetrical dip on the side. And I left the brim a bit longer on one side for additional asymmetry. It’s edged in navy silk with a silk band and bow.

I had fun mixing up masculine and feminine in this one of a kind hat.

Be sure to wear a hat this weekend for all of your outside activities! Hope you have a meaningful Memorial Day weekend.
