Un Chapeau

"Ha! I've got your hat! Take that, Hatless! Now go back to the quad and resume your hacky-sack tournee!"--Stewie Griffin of the Family Guy

Sometimes, ladies, you don't feel like doing your hair. Sometimes, just sometimes, the thought of curling, braiding, dying, or frying just doesn't appeal.

So you reach for a hat.

But a fashionable lady can't grab just any old hat off the rack.
Baseball caps....

...are better suited for guys or pre-adolescent girls.

Scullies...

...might make you look dated.

And the full on white fur...

...just looks crazy.

I personally think menswear inspired hats a la Marlene Dietrich...


...are super stylish and sexy.
For modern examples, look no further than the most fashionable celebrities.
Kelly Rowland...

and Mary J...

...beautifully update the look with sharp fedoras.

Halle Berry joins the fray...

with a dark page boy.

And the ever fabulous J. Lo....

...looks hot in a chic bowler.

I personally like this Burberry Driver's Cap...

...at Saks for $160.

And this Eugenia Kim equestrian cap...

...at Shopbop for $165.

When looking for hats, stick to tame, neutral colors or patterns in a smooth wool.
Off to find a topper!

Smootches!

A fedora is always a good look. I stole my boyfriends and rocked it old school rat pack style.
