One does not usually associate hats with fancy occasions, unless the event is Avant Garde. However, a hat can be easily incorporated into a fancy look by choosing pieces that have texture and shine to dress the hat up. Starting with a suede fringe skirt, pulls in the texture factor and is a contrast between the silky fabric of the plum blouse. I tucked in the blouse to define a waist and make the look more so dressed up. Adding accents in gunmetal hues, such as heels, a statement necklace, and clutch are edgy ways to incorporate shine because gunmetal is unexpected, just like the hat is, rather than choosing traditional silver or gold.
