Welcome to in-between-days season, when the weather can swing from rainy gales and snow showers to warming sunshine. Not only is this unpredictable climate affecting our mood, it’s playing havoc with our daily outfit choices. Which is why it pays to have a few go-to classics in your wardrobe that you can rely on come rain or shine. Think elegant tall or stompy ankle boots, a luxurious jumper that lifts every look, a quilted or wax jacket and a pair of wear-everywhere jeans. And to top it off, we’d also add the Oxley fedora. Why? Because the Oxley is so unique.
Firstly, it has the power to remedy our weather woes, this year-round fedora is crafted in 100% wool felt and can lock in the heat on cooler days while it’s wide brim offers shelter from light rain or snow showers. Then, when the weather heats up, the Oxley will keep you cool by providing all the shade you need, whether you’re striding through town, country or coast.
Secondly, because the wide-brimmed fedora is synonymous with style, it’s an iconic hat that will always be in fashion. It’s distinctive shape, elegant design and contrast-edge ribbon, make it a striking choice. But it’s incredibly versatile too, lending itself to a range of looks and moods depending on how you wear it. With sleek hair and a tailored jacket it offers a modern and sophisticated edge, with relaxed waves and a floral dress it takes on a bohemian spirit, and with denim or leather it just exudes understated cool. And in a time when many of us are leaning towards comfortable dressing, the Oxley is an easy way to add impact to an everyday look.
There are five shades to choose from;
Olive Green is versatile and functional and looks particularly good for days exploring the countryside.
