Sail Away

2 years ago by

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a captain’s hat look so chic. I first fell in love with them while on vacation in Greece a few years ago, but — although they looked elegant in their own way — the local fishermen didn’t pull off this look quite as well as Alex Rubio does here…

After a sea of knitted beanies and wide brim felt hats, it’s such a striking look. It’s so practical for winter (but still different!), and her hair tucked in under her leather jacket makes it feel so Parisian. I’m not sure exactly where her look transports me, but it’s definitely not winter in New York — maybe more a fishing town in the Mediterranean or the streets of the first arrondissement?

Hat, Boutique Saint James; Jacket, No. 21.
