Kangol Fur Felt Ladies Siren Hat in Chocolate
WHAT: Kangol Fur Felt Ladies Siren Hat in Chocolate
WHY: Practically every seventies silhouette that sauntered down the runway for fall begs to be polished off with a chic chapeau. But hitting the right note of haute haberdashery can be a challenge: pitch-perfect brim width, a shapely crown, ideal floppability, oh my! No need to fret, mon cherie. Just cue the Fleetwood Mac and toss on this mellow chocolate-hued Kangol number in thick, soft velour felt. You're in pretty chic company, as the hip Siren style was spotted on fashionplates like Alexa Chung and Alexandra Richards during NYFW. Whether it's a bad hair day or a bit of hippie nostalgia, this topper has an oh-so-Stevie Nicks effect in just seconds.
