Hats Off—How-To Wear This Season's Trending Styles

Often, hats can be an intimidating addition to an outfit. I have frequently found myself trying on different hats in front of a mirror, always weary of how feasible the style is for my day. With recent summer trends, fashionable headgear has become a practical and stylish statement for any day-to-day look.

From baseball caps to bandanas to wide-brims, a hat can elevate your outfit and add some important sun protection. The best part of this season’s trends is that they can be dressed up or down, and these styles are more wearable than they appear. Check out how our Style Gurus are styling outfits for any occasion around their different hat choices for the summer.
