4 Ways to Wear Hats This Spring And Summer

Photo by Ale Veyna

Lately, I’ve been trying really hard to incorporate hats into my everyday outfits as a way to shield my face from the sun and keep my skin as healthy as possible. I’ve also realized that hats can be very useful when you have a bad case of messy hair, like I often do, and just need something to hide it. Despite all the advantages, I have to admit that wearing hats has been very challenging for me because it can be hard to style an outfit around such an obvious accessory. That is why I thought it would be a fun idea to come up with a couple of ways to wear hats this spring and summer.
Outfit Details:
I’m definitely on a mission to buy a cute boater hat to wear during these warmer months. I love that the brim of this hat is large and flat because it keeps the sun rays away without getting in your face. I also love that this style of hat immediately adds a very romantic and retro feel to any outfit. I can see myself wearing a boater hat with a cute summer dress and sandals.
Outfit Details:
I’ve been seeing baseball caps everywhere these past few seasons, and have been really tempted to purchase one of my own. My problem is that I don’t know if I could pull off wearing one without looking like I’m trying too hard. If I were to wear a baseball cap, I would incorporate into a simple black and white outfit for a minimalist and effortless look.

I love floppy hats because they fit so well with my personal style. I just love how versatile this style of hat is–you can wear it with jeans and a t-shirt, a casual dress, or even style it with a maxi dress for a a fun and glamorous 70s-inspired look. In the summer, I would probably keep things simple and wear this style of hat with a shift dress, sandals or a pair of ankle boots, and a cute necklace. You don’t need to put too much effort into the rest of your outfit when you have a fun statement piece like this.
Outfit Details:
Wide brim hats, such as fedora and rancher style hats, are also a great option for spring and summer because they look great with a variety of casual outfits. I personally would wear this style of hat with a fun maxi dress and sandals. If you’re going for a more rugged look, you can also pair it with a nice button down and denim shorts.
I hope you’re all having a great week. I’m personally counting down the days until the weekend since I’m driving up to San Luis Obispo to visit the Madonna Inn. I’ve wanted to visit this place for so long and I’m glad to finally have the opportunity to do so before I leave California. I also can’t wait to finally have some time to relax by the pool, and I’m just excited to explore the city since I’ve never been.

  • I think the floppy hat is my favorite. There is something so feminine about it. Baseball caps and me don't really work out. They end up looking like trucker hats on me because I have a small head. And the tight fit on the forehead usually causes me to break out up there. Adult acne sucks! I have a beautiful Eugenia Kim hat that I should wear more often. Thanks for the advice!

  • I need to invest in a good hat too!

  • I am just getting into hats so this a great guide to buying more!!! I think I want to try a wide brim hat next (now that I know what it's called thanks to you hehe)


  • this was such a great idea- it was so interesting to see how the different hats changed the outfits completely. I still love the baseball hat trend (such a fun contrast) but my favorite is the boater hat. Also, I need those modcloth sandals in the last outfit in my life. gorgeous!
