By now, you’ve probably noticed that hats are a thing. They’re great for covering up a questionable hair situation or accessorizing in a pinch. A hat can also majorly elevate your style. If you’re apprehensive about whether or not you can pull off the trend, look no further. Wearing a hat is one of the easiest, most effortless ways to pull any outfit together—just ask this Fashionista.

When I spotted this Fashionista’s all-black ensemble, my eyes were immediately drawn to the chic topper. She complements her luxe look with a structured fedora that’s perfect for winter. This Fashionista pairs her hat with a tailored coat and killer heels for a look that screams European jetsetter. The hat makes this Fashionista’s elegant attire daytime appropriate.

This particular day was warm enough for bare legs, but a hat is a great way to show off your style even when you’re bundled up in layers upon layers. Try a bowler hat in a bold color to brighten up your winter apparel. If you’re feeling adventurous, stand out in a color-block Panama hat. If you’re looking for headwear that you can rock in the warmer months, choose a Bohemian-inspired floppy hat or a cute cloche style.

How To: Still scratching your head about how to incorporate a hat into your wardrobe? Go for a neutral color hat in a classic silhouette. For a more feminine style, take this Fashionista’s cue and pair your hat with a dress, coat, heels and a red lip. You can also use a hat to add some edge to a classic jeans, T-shirt, moto jacket and ankle boots combination. Whatever your style, just put a hat on it!
