For those readers outside the UK, Fearne Cotton is a Radio 1 and TV presenter, synonymous with quirky fashion. She has been known to don the odd hat, and as someone pretty well-known this means she gives them very good coverage!
I love the contrast here between the black coat and red accessories. Black and red is probably my favourite colour combination, and the wide-brimmed hat here makes the otherwise simple outfit a statement.
Fearne seems to be a fan of the grunge look, which has been popular in recent years, and the hat she’s wearing here is adorable! For this look you wouldn’t want a hat that adds glamour, because it’s a rebellion against the too-made-up look on the other end of the fashion spectrum. So wearing a humorous hat feels to me like adding a touch of irony, proclaiming that she is following her own trends.
This is such a clever look! Whether it was a deliberate nod to Charlie Chaplin or not, I love the fusion of masculine and feminine – turning a dress into a suit shouldn’t work, but totally does. I do kind of wish she had a cane, though. The bowler hat completes the modernisation of Chaplin’s distinctive style.
