See This Hat Trick Work 9 Different Ways

Aug 18 2014 - 4:30am

There are the accessories we're used to wearing every day — shoes, stud earrings we never take off, our grab-and-go crossbody bags — and then there are hats [1]. Often placed on our heads as a final thought, they've got the power to make or break our outfits. Because, yes, sometimes a wide-brim can border on overkill, and a baseball cap seems too uniform-like with separates that are already athletic-inspired.

But this week the fashion bloggers have pulled off a round of hats that's sparked major inspiration. Whether it was because they built their ensembles around their toppers or because, without them, their looks appeared too minimal, there's no denying that these ladies have a knack for styling. So scroll down to see how it's done.

It's clear that this street style look — from the floppy brim to the lightweight, breezy appeal of this floral maxi dress — is perfect for a beach day.

A cowboy hat and fringe give off strong Western vibes, sure, but you can avoid coming off as too costumey with simple sandals and an oversize blouse instead of, say, cowboy boots or a vest.

This look proves you can wear your hat well into Fall (and even Winter) with a fuzzy sweater and skinny jeans. As the weather gets colder, switch up your slip-ons with a pair of booties.

A Breton cap contrasts with the biker appeal of a motorcycle vest and edgy snakeskin booties. Jeans and a white tee are the only neutralizers in this outfit.

Pointed-toe [11] loafers and leather make for an all-black outfit that's supersleek. So try adding accessories such as aviators and a dark fedora to infuse a totally unexpected sort of cool into your look.
