Hats are like earrings. They’re made to compliment your look. This season we’ve seen more and more women of color really utilizing hats as an accessory to amp up their look. Case in point, celebrity stylist June Ambrose. Although June is most known for rocking turbans, this past year June has rocked a mean wide brim hat. If you look at any fashion week 2012 photos, you’ll see Miss Ambrose with an oversized hat in a bold color looking fierce (in my Tyra Banks voice).
Even the younger generation is embracing hats in a more dashing and sophisticated way.
Must-Try Hat Trends
Yes, its easy to throw on a hat when you’re having a bad hair day, but have you really searched for a hat that was dapper and built an outfit around it? We think it’s time you tried. We’ve found 5 hat trends that we think every girl should try and really make an effort to have it compliment your look.
Check out our picks:
Eugenia Kim, $52 from Bloomingdales
The fedora is as classic as a white button up. Instead of just going for a plain straw version, try a fedora with a funky printed scarf around it. This hat would look awesome with a white suit.
The Wide Brim
Wide Brim Straw Fedora, $12.80 from Forever 21
Wide brim hats are classy and feminine with a masculine touch. Try one with a pair of trousers and a body skimming blouse.
August Hat, $21.99 from Macy’s
When we think floppy hats, we think beach glam. The floppy hat would be a great accessory to a sexy bathing suit or rocked with a printed sarong.
The Pill Box
Red Polka Dot Pill Box Hat, $11.60 from ASOS
We can credit Jackie Kennedy Onassis for putting the pill box hat on the map. It’s dainty and ladylike. Try to put a modern spin on it by wearing it with a pencil skirt and tank tucked in.
Primrose Garden Fascinator, $24.99 from ModCloth
The brits aren’t the only ones who know how to rock a fascinator. Bring out your inner church lady and try a fascinator hat. We promise it won’t have you looking like you’re part of the deaconess board.
