Not your regular outfit choice, the fedora hat is a statement piece.

Have you seen anyone wear a fedora hat and not look cool? I bet no, and one of my favourite qualities about the fedora hat is it is gender-neutral, so it could be worn by both males and females.

Fun Fact: The word fedora came about from a play that was first performed in the United States in 1889 by dramatist Victorien Sardou, Fédora, and written for Sarah Bernhardt.

Bernhardt played Princess Fédora, the heroine of the play. The hat was fashionable for women and the women’s rights movement adopted it as a symbol. Prince Edward of Britain started wearing them in 1924 which made it popular among men for its stylishness and its ability to protect the wearer’s head from the wind and weather.

So not only are you being stylish by rocking a fedora hat but, you are part of history.
