When we set out to discover what people are wearing out on the town this season, we found our share of eye-catching prints and colors. These five ladies took a few minutes to tell us about their personal styles and where they like to shop.
5. Meet Darlene & her darling fedora
We immediately picked Darlene out in a crowd because of her white fedora with a colorful ribbon. While all the other moms were squinting in the sun watching their children play in a fun fountain, Darlene looked calm and cool as she told us she purchased the hat from Aldo. "I'd like to say I was more fashion forward before I had him," said Darlene glancing at her son. "Now I just throw on a hat because my hair is messy." To find the rest of her "relaxed" wardrobe, Darlene loves shopping at the Gap. To recreate Darlene's sensible mommy-style, pick up a colorful hat of your own to wear while on the go. It will boost any simple ensemble into fashion statement central. Here are a few that caught our attention.
Fedoras for you
A classic example in white, this BCBG white straw fedora is great for giving your look a light, summery feel like Darlene's.
Another way to rock this look is with the Oasis floral print trilby hat. It's still neutral enough that you can wear it with a bold colored tee or tank.
Last but not least, Darlene's favorite store (The Gap) carries this cinnamon colored straw hat complete with a navy ribbon.
