Accessories Report

There is undeniably no accessory quite as practical but equally chic as the historically esteemed hat. It’s the classic staple item that’s been transforming wardrobes for centuries. Whether it be a baseball cap, beanie or fedora (the list goes on), they all serve certain purposes while also making you look fabulous. Such an accessory is often dismissed as a piece simply used to keep you warm or protect your face from the sun, but just because it’s functional doesn’t mean that you should put any less effort into looking your best.

This Fashionista was sporting the floppy hat in New York City just days away from spring. Floppy hats aren’t just for summers in the Hamptons, although the straw ones work very nicely on any beach day. This hat’s dark color and 100 percent wool texture kept her outfit appropriate for a day of shopping and strutting through the bustling city.

Pair this hat with just about any outfit, ranging from sundresses to skinny jeans, and it is sure to complete your look. Its versatility is just one of its many appeals. If you’re looking to add a little something extra to your ensemble, consider a floppy hat; and if you’re looking for something really bold, choose a floppy hat of a different color or with an accent ribbon. Baseball caps are good for ball games, but every Fashionista has got to learn to switch it up once in a while.
