Summer is finally here and that means the sun is (hopefully) here to stay. With so much talk about sun damage and skin cancer lately, it is extremely important to remember to protect yourself in as many ways as possible. Although sunscreen is one of the most effective ways to do so, hats can work to your advantage by protecting your face while adding to the outfit at the same time. While shielding you from the sun, hats are a great accessory that can completely make the outfit.

In this Fashionista’s outfit, she is wearing a floppy hat which is the main accessory and draws in the most attention. The pattern of the hat goes well with the plain black tank and neon pink maxi skirt. With the solid colored top and skirt, the pattern in the hat really stands out more. Her outfit is perfect for many different situations, anywhere from relaxing with friends at brunch to a night out on the town. The neutral colored wedges are a great fit to make this outfit even more classy.

How To: Although some people can be skeptical to wear a hat with their outfit because they feel it does not look good on them, there are so many different styles of hats to experiment with and you’re bound to find at least one that works for you. If you were to wear a neutral colored hat instead of a patterned one like the one this Fashionista is wearing, you could pair it with almost any outfit. Hats can be worn casually or as an accessory to your going out outfit. So, with that being said, find a hat that makes you feel awesome and rock it.
