Hats are one of those accessories that you can either pull off or not. If you are indeed a hat person, one of your must have summer accessories is the straw fedora. Perfect for a day at the beach or strolling around town, the fedora can make you look chic and totally summer-esque. Keep in mind though, that the straw fedora should only be worn during the day while the sun is shining. Wearing your fedora on date night with your hubby or out to for a night of dancing with the girls was so last year. Here are a few key points to remember when looking for your perfect fedora:
- The brim should sit just above your eyebrows. Any lower and the hat will swallow you whole.
- You should choose a fedora based on the proportions of your body. Small, petite frames should opt for a smaller brim, while curvy body types should look for wider brims.
- How your hair is worn with your fedora is crucial—a side-swept pony will make the look totally effortless.
- Have fun with color and patterns! There are a ton awesome prints, colors and styles out there so be adventurous.
