My favorite thing about fashion is taking risks and following trends that get people’s attention. Oversized, floppy hats are a great way to do so as they are not only a perfect way to protect your skin and eyes from the UV rays, but a way to add a trendy flair to your outfit as well.

This Fashionista is wearing a solid black maxi skirt and a stripped sweater knit crop top paired with black chic sunglasses and her straw floppy hat. Because this particular hat is straw material, it is not only perfect for completing an outfit, but gives off a summer beach look and would look great with a bathing suit as well. Another notable detail to this Fashionista’s outfit is her black lace bralette. I love the bralette trend because it is definitely more comfortable to wear than a bra with underwire and it makes it okay to let your bra show. It also adds some detail to a possible simple outfit and adds even more style to this already trendy look.

I think floppy hats look fabulous with maxi skirts because they add a boho feel to the overall ensemble. They are great for adding some dimension to a straight and fitted outfit.

How To: Want to grab yourself an oversized floppy hat, but you don’t want to spend a lot of money? Try this black braided tassel hat from Forever 21. To copy this Fashionista’s look, a solid maxi skirt and sweater crop top are the way to go. Complete your outfit with a pair of black cat eye sunglasses and you’re ready for the day.
