To make a fedora work into your professional ensemble, pairing it with classic pieces is necessary. For example, a pencil skirt and collared shirt are a great combination, but when both pieces are updated with a bold pattern and studs they look modern. A pair of grey kitten heels balance the grey hue of the fedora, while a trench coat in a camel color also keeps the look classic, while still incorporating modern touches. Adding a pop of color from a handbag finishes the look and gives the look a bright conversation piece. Visit back on Friday to see how I style this week's "Perfect Piece", the grey wool fedora, into a formal look!
