Thanks to global warming, today's weather can be particularly tricky to adapt your wardrobe to. We hardly have seasons, and the transitions in between are even more elusive. We're already in September, and in many parts of the country, it still feels like July. As we do inch more steadily towards colder weather, those transitional pieces of your wardrobe are going to be crucial for helping you survive season to season with style.
Not sure what, exactly, those pieces are? Fear not -- we're here to help, from head to toe, inside out. All week long we'll break down the best options for sliding smoothly into fall. First up:
HATS > While summer is meant for the fedoras, boaters and Panamas, as you move into fall, you'll want to look for heavier materials and more durable shapes. You know the types: berets, Gatsbys -- or, the Newsie's favorite, flat caps (pictured, Dolce & Gabbana), which, along with felted bowlers, are my season favorite. But, as cute an accessory as hats may be, do be mindful of the dreaded hat hair. Tussled is cute. Disheveled is not.
