Summer is on its way! You may have started to think about what you’ll be wearing - cute floral mini-dresses, paper bag shorts, flowy midi-skirts, and barely-there sandals, but have you thought about what hats you’ll wear? Hats are a cornerstone of a summer wardrobe. Not only do they serve a practical purpose in keeping the sun out of your eyes, but they’re also a great accessory piece that can complete an outfit.

Greek Fisherman Hat

First up, the Greek fisherman hat. Understated and simple, this hat will give you an interesting edge. Great for wearing with skinny jeans, tank tops, and sneakers.

The Floppy Hat

Next, we have the floppy hat and come on, who doesn’t love a great big floppy hat. This hat is not only gorgeous and feminine, but it will keep the sun out of your eyes like it’s no one’s business. Great for wearing with flowy summer dresses.

North Stars Baseball Cap

The baseball cap - what an American classic. This hat reminds me of longs days out in nature - cycling, walking, and exploring - and also reminds me of going to baseball games with friends. You’ll see me wearing this a lot with a t-shirt, shorts, and sneakers.

The Wide Brim Fedora Hat

Last but not least, the wide brim fedora. Stylish and sophisticated, this hat will make you walk taller and feel like a million dollars. It’s a great transitioning piece to add to an outfit when you have something a bit more dressed up to go to.

And that’s it - short and sweet. Those are my four favorite hats that you’ll be seeing me in this summer. Each gives off a different vibe and aesthetic, and they work for different occasions. Now I feel so summer-ready, I’m looking forward to what the season will have in store.
