One of my favorite trends for the upcoming seasons is hats! I’ll be fully honest with you all: much of my love for this particular trend has do with the fact that my hidden talent (if you can call it that) is that I can look cute in any and all hats. If you’ve got it, flaunt it! Not only is a hat an awesome way to make a statement, they’re also super functional. Whether you’re covering up a bad hair day or protecting yourself from sun exposure, do so in style! Here are three of the most crush-worthy cap varieties for Spring/Summer of 2013.
Straw and wicker are perennial favorites in terms of summer textiles, so it only makes sense that the straw fedora is a hot commodity this season! Less clichéd than a cowboy hat, the straw fedora is an absolute summer staple for the hat-loving fashionista. A celebrity fave, this look, which is a little vintage, a little indie, and totally on-trend adds a badass, mysterious vibe to any outfit. Bonus: It’s also totally unisex! Have your boyfriend buy one and strategically “borrow” it to compliment your spring and summer looks. Straw fedoras are especially hot with chambray, lace, dresses, and bikinis. Twist hair into a fishtail braid for a super chic fedora-clad poolside look by day, and then add a romper, keep the hat, and unravel your braid into beachy waves for night.
Girly Baseball Caps
From floral print, to lace overlay, to polkadots, the iconic baseball cap has gotten a feminine, fashion-forward makeover for 2013! This style is so easy to incorporate into your wardrobe that it takes virtually zero extra thought on the part of the wearer. Cute and casual, girly baseball caps are perfect to wear on spring shopping trips, outdoor adventures, and of course, to baseball games! It’s the perfect combination of sporty and flirty. Want to adapt the look for nightlife? Faux leather baseball hats are hot for all of your nights out.
Whether you’re bold and fearless or simply want to appear as so, an oversized floppy hat is the ideal topper for you. These hats absolutely oozes glamour, so prepare to turn heads! Though this variety of hat tends to require a bit of strategic styling, the style payoff is huge! There’s no easier way to look put together and fabulous than to put on a big floppy hat…even if you’re feeling not-so fresh. After all, it covers everything up! Add a pair of oversized sunnies and you won’t even have to do your makeup. Vacationing in the upcoming seasons? Make sure to tote a floppy hat! They’re the perfect airport accessory, look hot on the beach, and add a mysterious-glam edge to your sightseeing looks. Actually, if you’re only going to purchase one hat this summer, make it floppy variety! Nothing takes a look to the next level like an oversized floppy hat. Look like a celebrity and live in these! Pro-tip: if you want a multi-season floppy hat, skip the pastels and straw and go for a piece styled of felt in a neutral shade.
