It doesn't hurt that at this angle the fedora makes me look bald. :D
I tried shooting for nice and possibly grad student material without trying-too-hard, with a foot dabbling in costume.
I feel like I'm learning to put together outfits I like -top, bottom, and jewelry- but when I try to add a jacket or hat I can get totally thrown off, as is the case with this fedora. I like it, I just don't think it quite fits my other clothes. I hit the same problem with jackets, despite having SO MANY of them. More experimentation is needed.
Is there an item, such as jewelry, jackets, or hats that you have difficulty getting to work with an outfit?
