(it's not available online so I had to take my own pics). I love the style but I'm a college student and all I really own is jeans and t-shirts so I just don't know what to pair with this style of hat. I have a budget of $100-$150 and wear a size 2-4 dress, depending on the brand. I would really appreciate some expert advice! Thank you! Rebekah"
Hi Rebekah! I'm Found of You, and I think you're pretty lucky to have a hubby with such great taste. You say you're a student and you already own jeans and tees. Great! You can totally wear this hat with jeans and t-shirts. Here are three outfits with mix and match pieces that will look cute with your hat. Hopefully, you already have some similar items (striped t-shirt, grey sweater, gold earrings...) so you'll only have to add a few items to your wardrobe to make this work!
1 - ASOS Swing Coat ($74)
2 - 7 For All Mankind Jeans ($151)
3 - ASOS Pull On Ankle Boots ($83)
4 - Three Dots Navy Slub Stripe Tee ($38, in three colors)
5 - Faloria Sweater ($60, in three colors)
6 - French Sole Metallic Leather Flats ($96)
7 - Leaf Hoops ($12)
8 - Amanda Pearl Gold Gobstopper Necklace ($218) and a cheaper version, the Carolee Graduated Gold Pearl Necklace ($50) or if you're more daring and flashy, this French Connection Gold Flower Charm Bib Collar ($80)
9 - Poppy Red Tiered Tee ($36)
