This iconic hat, once a favourite among stylish men, has been reinvented for women, offering a versatile accessory for any outfit. Explore a range of men’s and women’s hats.

Whether your style is preppy, rock n’ roll or even artsy, you should give a bowler hat a try. Here’s why:

1. They’re Quirky!

Casual black tees or slouchy jumpers are simple, everyday items that don’t necessarily stand out, but make us look good and feel comfortable. But with one simple addition such as the bowler hat, our everyday outfits can go from simple, to delightfully quirky!


Ikrush’s bowler hat in wine (#4) is a great addition for your everyday outfits. It has a casual look to it, and the color can instantly perk up a dull look.

2. They Can Relax an Outfit

Sometimes the discovery of a particularly glamorous dress or top means we HAVE to wear it, but what if we don’t want to look too dressy? The bowler hat is the perfect way to dress down a body-con, midi, skater or frilly dress, making your outfit choice look much more relaxed, but still just as fabulous.


3. It’s Here to Stay

The bowler hat is definitely worth investing in, if not due to its versatility, but to the fact that it has, and will never go out of style. Bridgette Bardot sported the bowler hat in the 1950’s and it’s still worn today by well-known celebs; Meagan Good, Mischa Barton, Rihanna and Beyonce.
