HOW TO STYLE A BAKER BOY HAT
As much as I hate the cold weather, autumn is my style season. I can never get enough of chunky knits, thigh high boots and simple accessories! Baker boy hats are one of my favourite accessories at the moment. I’ve been fawning over their street style presence as of late.
Now here is the thing, I’d been on the search for one of these hats for the longest time and it just so happens that they are not made for people with big heads! Every time I found one they just wouldn’t sit properly on my head or if they did, it felt like I was about to pass out due to the pressure! So when I stumbled upon this lonesome baker boy hat in Primark and it actually fitted, I just knew it was fate!
I basically compiled this whole look around how to style this baker boy hat. I tried to keep everything pretty muted with the tones. The coat and knit are the only colours I chose to stand out. Now, I do have to say when shooting this look it was freezing and raining, hence the crazy hair. So for reference, I would only opt for this look on a mild day…
I’m not usually a short-wearer, especially not in November but I’m making an exception for this pair.
Of course, the staple in this look is the hat, but the shorts definitely make a statement. I actually picked these shorts up from Zara when I was in Mexico as a versatile piece to take with me to Fashion Week. When I got back to the UK and added them to my wardrobe, I realised their full potential! I’m not usually a short-wearer, especially not in November but I’m making an exception for this pair.
To try and combat some of cold, I did slip on a duster coat – not that it made much difference! This longline coat features a double breasted front with black buttons which ties in with the rest of the look, including the baker boy hat. I also really liked the length in comparison to the boots and shorts, it pulled everything together and gave the look a bit more of an autumnal finish.
In keeping with the minimal colour palette, I paired a texturally contrasting bag with the shorts. Obviously, I also went for a pair of trusty black thigh highs to match everything but the knit. The knit is a super slouchy roll neck from H&M and I have to say I am obsessed. As always, a tuck is essential. I tucked the knit into the shorts so I could really showcase the detailing on them.
I’ve been wearing versions of this look to work and when I go shopping. It’s so simple but really comes across as being chic and a bit daring. My best advice when styling a baker boy hat
