Ask Rachel: Tips For Topping It Off


Your question gives me the perfect excuse to go on a hat hunt, so thank you! As my show confirms, I am having a serious moment with every kind of topper imaginable right now…berets, beanies and floppy fedoras galore! They are all impeccable options for “topping off” an outfit.

The turban you spotted me wearing in the Passover Seder episode was actually a gift—there is no tag, so the designer is a mystery!— but Norma Kamali and ASOS both make similar versions that I think you will love. I seriously die for a classic turban—especially at night—for a gypsy cool twist on one’s look.

Other standout hats that I am coveting right now (and forever) are wool fedoras—minimalistic or adorned with studs—sequin berets and anything with a leopard printduh. Hopefully, you can expand your collection with one or all of them! I promise each pick will instantly make any ensemble more interesting and timeless, plus they are a girl’s best friend on a bad hair day :) xoRZ
