National Hat Day and holidays
The December holidays and the start of the New Year are right around the corner, which means everyone plans their perfect outfits. When it comes to up an outerwear outfit, there is no better way than accessorizing with a hat. When you are reading the blog already for a while, you know that I am a big hat lover. Thus, when Tenth Street Hats asked me to pick one of their 325+ styles to review for the holidays and the upcoming National Hat Day (January 15), I immediately accepted.
What I picked and why
They recently released 50 new styles of this favorite accessory to add a touch of style and flare to the new 2020 looks. I picked the Scala wool felt festival round crown Fabia in taupe. It is handmade! Note it is also available in black and navy.
My choice was based on our plans for Christmas and the outfit I had in mind. Taupe is one of my flattering colors. It is a perfect match for my heavy midi A-line winter coat. The 2 ¾” (7 cm) brim has just the right size to look sophisticated, but not block the view for people sitting behind me. The upturn brim is definately a head-turner that ups your whole outfit to the next level. This headtopper works for both church and going out for dinner in the evening. Most importantly, its style looks modern, but timeless.
Great craftsmanship (as usual)
When I opened the package, I was excited that the hat met all my expectation. It had the same excellent craftsmanship as all my hats I have from them. It has nice even stitching arount the brim. The bow is stitched tight to the grosgrain band. I really like this detail. It ensures that the bow stays in place when you stuck your hats for storage. The wool felt feels nice to the touch and has a neutral scent.
I also was very pleased about the color. The taupe looks flattering on me and goes well with the colors of the coat (see photos in this post). My dressing problem/challenge, what hat to wear on Christmas Day is solved. 😉
It’s incredible that the Fabia costs only $60. The quality of the item is a great value for the price. The high quality ensures that the head piece lasts a long time. The neutral color works for fall, winter, and spring. In cold climate regions like Alaska, Canada, Montana, Idaho, Wyomming, the northern New England states, just to mention a few, the Fabia even works for Easter Brunch when there is still some leftover snow on the ground or the weather is rainy. A hat-lover quickly gets the price-per-wear under one dollar. When you are a regular reader, you know that this is my criterion for giving a thumbs up.
They have a sale on National Hat Day and a coupon code for my readers right now HIGHLATITUDE20 – 20% off meaning that you pay even less.
The Fabia is one of their one-size-fits-most. The inner drawstring sweatband
let’s you adjust the size and it is easy to use. Thus, no matter whether you go for a French twist or a low knot in the back or a low braid ponytail, just pulling the drawstring in the right direction will adjust the width. Easy accomodation of long hair and up-dos! Love that! <3
Who would love the Scala Fabia
This hat is a Must-have for every hatlover, who is looking for a sophisticated timeless style that works for multiple seasons and occassions. It’s perfect for church, dinner and even for keeping your head warm when your outerwear is part of your work attire. The hat looks great business casual work outerwear as well as with festive outerwear or Sunday’s Best.
The Fabia is very versatile to style. If your budget only permits one hat, this hat keeps you posh and in style from work to church and festive occassions. I definitively can recommend this hat to my friends. You can find the Scala Fabia in their Felt Hats collection.
In a nutshell
