Good morning everyone today’s post is based around this gorgeous hat. Now if I haven’t mentioned it before well let me tell you know I am an absolute lover of hats, the more unique and quirky they are the better. Now this year I was kindly invited to the races out here in Dubai. Unfortunately it was canceled due to COVID, understandably so, but I couldn’t help feel disappointed! If I had gone then this would have been one of my options to wear for the day.
So first up I am wearing this beautiful black jumpsuit from REISS. The jumpsuit has a high neck and a cutout back. The legs are wide in a flared style and the length is just perfect for me when I wear my feels as it skims the floor. I love wearing my trousers and jumpsuits this way especially flared and wide leg ones! I opted for this black jumpsuit as I wanted to continue the black from the hat and I would say it works rather well with the orange.
Now lets talk about the piece de resistant, this gorgeous hat from MERVE BAYINDIR. This is the Joan hat dedicated to Joan of Arc – the patron saint of France who successfully led the French to victory at Orleans and made a significant impact during the Hundred Years’ War. I love how all her hats are named after Icons!
The black and orange colour palette creates this beautiful headpiece and makes it instantly striking. The hat comes in this medium black button shape and is half covered in orange embroidery. This is accented by a pair of orange taffeta flowers. Then you have the extending orange quill for the ultimate statement in party and occasion wear!
Next and here I have opted for this gold vintage clutch this just adds another colour without taking anything away from my hat. The hat is the star of the show and keeping my attire all black does that for sure. Finally for the finishing touch I decided to wear a nude lipstick. This is in the shade Topped With Brandy from M.A.C. with a hint of CHANEL Adrienne in the middle to give my lips that fuller look.
Are you a hat person? Would you consider wearing this to the races, weddings or for any other special occasion? Do let me know by leaving a comment below.
