    As much as we cherish go-to sartorial additions like statement necklaces, or striking soles, we kind of have a soft spot for one of the most timeless accessories of all: toppers. It’s no secret haute hats are having a major moment. A great chapeau adds an instant surge of sharp, sophisticated flair. But, it’s not every day you stumble upon one that's worthy of sitting atop your head.

    Enter, Janessa Leone. The SoCal designer has crafted a collection of hats that take the regular ol’ Fedora to the next level. Featuring sleek silhouettes, subdued shades, and gorgeous felt, Leone lays the style on hard with these breathtaking iterations.

Click through to peep the prettiness yourself.
