My favorite hat style is probably the baseball cap, though it apparently doesn't go well with my angular jaw...Major faux pas? Nah...

Lisa, I guarantee you can still wear a baseball cap with a square jaw. As long as your face isn't particularly short, you're good to go. It didn't get a strict "avoid" advisory :)

I really like Cloches! I hope they are still "in" because I have a couple for fall/winter that I love! Thanks for the video!

Elise said...

I love hats! This is a great reminder to pull them off the shelf and wear them more.

And you both look so fresh and pretty with that rosy lipstick. Hmm...where did I put mine...? ;)

Im pretty sure I am an oval. I love a good baseball cap but I need good dressy hat???

Reachel Bagley, Fashion Consultant said...

I would try a cloche hat. It's perfect for a longer oval face shape, yet formal enough to pair with dresses and skirts.

Reachel Bagley, Fashion Consultant said...

Cloches are timeless, especially if they are free of extra ornamentation. I'm sure you'll look stunning in one as the temperatures drop.

I would love to know what lipstick color you are wearing and where you got your necklaces (both from Hat Trends video). Both are lovely.

Reachel Bagley, Fashion Consultant said...

The lipstick color I'm wearing in the Hat Trends video is Mac Dubonnet ( with Sheena gloss on top. My necklace in the Hat Trends video is from J.Crew ( and my video wardrobe form the Fashion Trends video is detailed here (
