With summer coming in at full blast, sun rays can wreak havoc on your skin. The scorching rays are one of the many reasons why some refuse to leave their homes rather than enjoy the summer warmth. Even though it might sound great to have a relaxing day with a face mask on and a movie marathon binge provided by YouTube and Netflix, you might be missing out on a ton of fun adventures. After all, summer is one of the only times of the year where you’ll be able to go on full day adventures from morning to night without having schoolwork lurking in the back of your mind. So, it’s time to get out of bed and make the most out of each and every day, because you never know what experiences might await you. It also doesn’t hurt to look cute while doing so!

This Fashionista’s cute floppy hat is the perfect way to look fashionable while blocking out the harsh sun rays. Hats really help to pull an outfit together by adding a cute, casual feel to an outfit. Hats also help to hide bad hair days whilst making you look timeless-chic. There’s something about a floppy hat that brings a sophisticated, yet simplistic feel to an outfit. It’s the perfect balance between casual and put together.

This Fashionista paired her floppy hat with a loose, pink babydoll dress and a pair of red flats for a bright, casual summer outfit. The dress will keep her cool with the loose, breathable fabric while the flats are the perfect pair of shoes to walk around in for a cute date or a summer adventure. The hat brings the outfit to the next level by adding coverage from the sun along with a chic touch to the simplistic outfit.

How To: If you’ve ever been unsure about how to style floppy hats, summer is the perfect time to bring them out to play. The easiest way to style them is to make the hat the main component of your outfit. If you pair it with a simplistic outfit like a swing dress or a loose top and jean shorts, there is basically no room for error! Have fun and play around with dressier and more casual looks; the floppy hat is a great staple to have in anyone’s wardrobe.
