You might recall last year I shared my trend report for AW13 as part of the RSVP Bloggers Competition and I was lucky enough to make it to the top 30! I was invited this year to participate in the Cork Fashion Week Blogger Competition in association with RSVP Magazine by showcasing a blog post with my AW14 trend predictions.
I’ve focused this trend alert on my favourite AW trend – hats! When I think AW fashion this is the first trend that springs to mind. Hats are the perfect accessory to add to your AW wardrobe and there have been some great selections popping up both online and in-store in recent weeks. I picked up the burgundy ‘pork-pie’ style hat in Primark in London just a couple of weeks ago and I was kicking myself afterwards for not getting it in a couple of different colours. I think it is key to have a good selection of hats at hand as they can completely style-up an outfit and change a look. In particular I’m looking forward to wearing felt fedoras and dark coloured hats such as burgundy or burnt orange – two key colours for this AW. Ditch the sun-hat and stay away from the beanie for now; it’s all about on-trend stylish hats – the more over-sized the better! There can also be some amazing unique finds in Ireland’s thrift stores and charity shops if you are up for a browse!
