You can wear a hat anytime and anywhere. In the summer, we like to protect our skin, so it is essential to have a wardrobe of great hats in flattering shapes and styles. A wide brim is an ideal option to guard you from the sun’s rays, while making you look utterly feminine and elegant.

You can always create incredibly unique and stylish looks, playing with even the simplest hat styles. A big floppy hat adds bohemian chic that works well with long skirts and maxi-dresses. Floppy hats are the best headwear option you can go for to build up beautiful, romantic boho looks.

Packable hats are available now, so you can have a hat handy to put on when the sun is bright or when you need to change your look as you transition through the day. Adding a flower or a colorful ribbon brings a burst of beautiful color to a neutral hat.

Caps are quite a noteworthy spring/summer headwear trend. The texture and the materials are stylishly updated, encompassing details from different fashion periods, with new shapes, color combos and options.

Also popular are traditional masculine shapes—a vibe that combines classic hat forms with tough attitude and tough style.

A turban can be effortless as well as glamorous, plus it comes in handy on a bad-hair day!
