Fedoras for fall, eh?

Bad hair day? Color gone wrong? Just chronically late? A hat can be the perfect answer when you want to arrive looking fabulous, but only have minutes to get ready.

My favorite solution is the women’s fedora, a trend that is showing no signs of slowing down. The classic fedora has a retro, Humphrey Bogart feeling, but today’s women’s fedoras are substantially more playful, including the Ms. Collete, pictured.

The Ms. Colette is a custom-molded fedora made from a wool blend in suiting pinstripe fabric, with leather trim details. This fedora is perfect for fall in a yummy chocolate brown and has an antique brass d-ring, studded detailing and a custom-printed lining.Throw this hat on and you’re set!

The Ms. Collete was created by nobis for their Fall 2010 Collection. nobis is a Canadian company (and those Canadians definitely know a thing or two about cold weather wear!)

The firm manufactures amazing lifestyle headwearand outerwear — from gorgeous down parkas for my next ski trip, to hood-scarves for playing in the snow, to super stylish berets and beanies.

nobis has been steadily gaining attention since 2008. This year alone, their gorgeous pieces have been featured in New! magazine (UK), Chatelaine (Canada) and Cosmopolitan (USA), just to name a few!

To see the entire new line for Fall 2010 inlcuding women’s men’s and even kids’ pieces, visit nobis. You can also shop online (so convenient!) or find a store near you with the easy-to-use nobis shop locator.

Fall? Bring it on!
