i remember first learning about janessa leone from reading alicia lund’s blog, cheetah is the new black. besides having one of the most lust-worthy wardrobes, alicia’s hat collection is second to none.
in doing my own research about the brand, i learned JL is a local company -based out of los angeles. each hat or handbag in their collection is designed with a timeless and minimalistic eye and handmade from the highest quality materials. janessa leone pieces are definitely investments, but with classic silhouettes and quality fabrics, they are meant to last you year after year and season after season.
i was gifted this new felt hat as a belated christmas present from my step-mom and i’m already obsessed. it’s the perfect dark chocolate brown with a dainty contrasting ribbon around the base. i imagine it’ll get plenty of wear this winter and well into spring. in all honesty, i’d probably wear a hat every day if i could get away with wearing them to work. not only are hats the perfect statement piece, they’re my best defense against a bad/dirty hair day. i’ve rounded up some of my favorite janessa leone designs:
