It’s a beautiful day and the Texas sky is bright and clear. The sun is out and blazing with all of its glory. You check the weather and see that temperatures will reach over 90 degrees. The gears in your brain start to turn as you try to decide whether you should risk stepping out in the heat or hide in the dark corners of your air conditioned bedroom. You and your fellow Fashionistas/os decide to seize the day and head to the local food trucks for a few snow cones to combat the blistering sun. You begin to compose an outfit—carefully choosing all of your favorite heat-proof summer essentials. Crop top? Check. Shorts? Check. Sandals? Check. As you admire your incredible creation in the mirror, you begin to feel as if something is missing. What could it be?

This Fashionista has the exact answer. Sun hats are the perfect accessory for any summertime outfit. They come in so many different colors and sizes, providing an array of choices suitable for every Fashionista’s needs, all while providing protection from the sun. Whether you choose a floppy sun hat like the one this Fashionista is wearing, a classic straw sun hat or something a little more extravagant like this broad brimmed fedora, sun hats are proven to be the perfect daytime accessory. Don’t be afraid to be daring in your sun hat choices! After all, having any item of clothing in every color possible has never hurt a Fashionista’s closet, right?

This Fashionista made a statement by wearing a bright red floppy sunhat. She complemented her colorful sun hat by pairing it with a black, faux leather crop top, daisy-printed shorts and gold sandals. She matched her red hat with the perfect red lip and completed her ensemble by wearing stackable bracelets and a pendant necklace. This Fashionista’s outfit flawlessly encompasses everything summer.

How To: Sun hats of any color (or brim size) can be the factor that takes your outfit from basic to exceptional. If you decide to follow in this Fashionista’s footsteps, be sure that the colors in your outfit do not clash with the color of your hat. Be bold, be daring and always step out to make a statement.
