Oft worn by Samantha Ronson, most likely as part of a cunning ploy to detract from her permanent 'look at me I'm a grumpy butch lesbian' expression, the Trilby has been around for a while now. Like all things that were good when nobody else was doing it, the look is set to peak this summer as every brand with an accessories line adds one to their collection. I quite like the classic version at just €4 from Penney's, but if you feel like splashing the cash on a fancy version, then be my fancy guest.
If you're male with the underdeveloped, Earthworm Jim head of Blake 'Incarcerated' Fielder Civil, then it's probably best to sit this one out. The sight of him in a newspaper makes me want to fly to London and kick him in the face.
