Hat Time!

We’ve already highlighted our love affair with sporty caps this season but the trusty summer hat is not to be forgotten as it’s the definition of sun safely and a great style essential! Wide brim and straw hats have always captured the essence of summer whether you’re attending the beach, a festival or a casual Sunday BBQ, they compliment the simplest of outfits. Hailing from the 70s the wide brim floppy hat is the epitome of Hollywood glamour and will easily transform your outfit from the beach to a work luncheon in style or pair a more structured trilby or fedora for a casual and chic look.

The summer hat not only provides sun protection and style it is the perfect accessory to hide a nasty hangover or for those days when you get out of bed struck with a serious case of a bad hair day. Throw on a hat with a light sun dress and sandals or shorts, singlet and converse for a laid back look that is not only cute but stylish. From the fedora to the hippie felt hat or wide brim straw there is something for every taste and every personality. So get into the true spirit of summer with the most classic summer accessory around.
