One of the reasons we created Bahadu was to redefine how women viewed hats in terms of their wardrobe options. We hope to illustrate that a Bahadu hat because of it's superior fit and fashionability is a deliberate style choice and not a cop out for a bad hair day. The Bahadu hat is the new completer piece to make you look polished and put together, pairing with your favorite sneakers but also looking appropriate with heels.
With that in mind (and with a subtle nod to Groundhog Day), we thought we'd share how one Bahadu hat can be repeated with multiple different outfits.
We chose our coral cotton twill hat, not only because it is "the color of the year,"but it is also surprisingly versatile and it pairs easily with many of the neutrals you probably already have in your wardrobe. Great accessories are affordable ways to inject trends into a wardrobe of classic pieces. We've chosen a navy color palette for this story but this coral color looks just as lovely with beige/khaki, olive, creams and grays.
Look 1 - Casual Cool
Printed gray sweatshirt, denim trousers, suede booties, a navy clutch (which you could swap for your favorite tote for daytime errands) and gold jewelry. This outfit would be great for dinner with pals or a casual date night.
Look 2 - The Classics
The classic white button down shirt, denim trousers and gold jewelry (or whatever tone jewelry you prefer). Add a jaunty leopard print ballet flat and your coral Bahadu hat and your accessories have just updated your most iconic wardrobe staples. We would wear this running errands, for a travel day or even for a casual Friday at the office.
Look 3 - Casual Friday
A navy cable crewneck sweater, button down shirt, ivory corduroy trousers, heeled oxford booties and gold accessories. The pop of color in this outfit helps it from feeling too stuffy. This is a great casual Friday option. It's also a great way to address seasonal transitions because of the layers and adding in the touch of coral shifts toward a more spring-like palette but you'll still be cozy.
Look 4 - Hat and Dress? Yes!
The denim or chambray dress, another wardrobe workhorse. A long sleeved t-shirt underneath which helps to again address the seasonal transitions or chilly office environments. Adding the coral hat elevates the whole look and makes it complete and unique.
Look 5 - Beach Beauty
Spring break! Let's face it an accessory that can pack easily AND coordinate with multiple pieces is like vacationing with your best friend - infinitely more enjoyable. We've chosen a simple navy swimsuit, a navy and white tunic coverup and of course flip-flops. Bonus: an extra layer of sun-protection because the hat helps to keep the sun off your face while allowing you to be active at the beach or the pool.
We hope we've given you some outfit inspiration.
