Exploring the Stylish and Iconic World of Fedora Hats

The iconic Fedora hat originated in the late 19th century in the city of Victoria, Canada.  It was popularised by a French stage play titled "Fedora," where the lead actress, Sarah Bernhardt, wore a brimmed hat that would later be associated with the style we now know as the Fedora. The hat gained further popularity in the early 20th century, becoming a staple in men's fashion. Over time, it has evolved and adapted to various styles, making it a timeless and versatile accessory for both men and women.

Adding a fedora hat can bring a touch of sophistication and flair to your outfit. Whether you choose a wide brim fedora hat, a straw fedora or a teardrop felt fedora – there's plenty of options to suit various styles and preferences. Below, we run through some tips on how we at Borges & Scott most like to style a fedora hat.

Choose the Right Size:

Ensure that the fedora fits well on your head. It shouldn't be too tight or too loose. The brim should sit just above your eyebrows and the headband hold it a finger’s width above your ears. All our fedora hats are available in sizes extra small to extra large, with free 90-day returns offered on all orders so you can have peace of mind that you’ll find the right hat for you. We also have a handy size guide on the website and our Bristol, UK based team are happy to help you find the right fit.

Select a Complementary Colour:

Choose a fedora hat in a colour that complements your outfit and skin tone. Classic colours like black, brown, or grey are versatile and can be paired with various pieces in your wardrobe. Our collection offers brighter options such as The Doyle – Teardrop Fedora for men in a luxurious amber shade, perfect for making a statement this season. We also have The Teardrop Fedora – Panama Hat for women, a classic beige straw fedora hat with a statement red and yellow band.

Mind the Season:

Different materials are suitable for different seasons. Felt fedoras are great for cooler weather, while straw fedora hats are perfect for spring and summer. Adjust the material based on the climate.

Position the Fedora Properly:

Tilt the fedora slightly to one side for a stylish and confident look. Experiment with different angles to find what suits your face shape best. Avoid wearing the hat too far back on your head. It generally looks more stylish when worn closer to the forehead.

Mix and Match Textures:

Combine different textures in your outfit to create visual interest. For example, pair a felt fedora with a leather jacket or a straw fedora with a linen shirt. We love The Lewis Teardrop Fedora Wide Brim styled with a crisp linen shirt, benefiting from stain and water-resistant qualities - it is the perfect choice for frequent travelers. Whether you choose an on-trend olive green shade or a classic black colorway, there are 6 stylish colours to choose from.

Remember, personal style is subjective, so feel free to experiment and find what makes you feel comfortable and confident. Whether you're going for a classic, vintage, or modern look, a fedora can be a versatile accessory that adds a touch of personality to your outfit.
