Top 10 Summer Hats

Since you spend most of your summer days outdoors, add hats to your list of favorite accessories and express your uniquely fabulous style while keeping the sun off your face and staying cool. Check out our top 10 favorite summer hats to give you some inspiration for your own hat collection.

No. 10: Olympics

The 2012 Summer Olympics in London is something to celebrate! If you’re psyched for the games, grab an official cap to get into the spirit of things.

No. 9: Straw Hat

We love straw hats for summer. They keep the sun off your face, and the lightweight straw keeps you cool and doesn’t leave you with bad hat hair after wearing it all afternoon. Check out this fabulous one from JCrew.

No. 8: Stetson

Actress/screenwriter Nikki Reed’s sense of style is always on target. Her cute Stetson expresses her personality while evoking Mexican Caballeros traditions. Ole!

No. 7: Side-Stepping Cloche

Courtesy of Zimbio

The roaring 20’s gave a lot to the fashion world. Flappers wore cute little hats like this side-stepping cloche that stays on while you dance the Charleston (or any other dance you can think of).

No. 6: Ribbon Wrapped Cloche

Courtesy of Zimbio

Pretty as a picture and wrapped up like a present, this cute flowery cloche goes beautifully with a peasant dress, sundress, or a cute tunic over white jeans. Incidentally, cloche is French for “bell”, like the bell-shape of the hat!

No. 5: Big

With a huge hat like this one, it’s like walking around covered by your own personal awning. It makes a statement as an accessory while keeping out the sun. So fun. So ‘70s!

No. 4: Visor Hat

Courtesy of Trendseeker

A wide brim visor hat keeps off the shade but leaves the top of your head uncovered. Great for ventilation, and folds up easily to take anywhere. Wear it with a swimsuit and coverup,

No. 3: Fedora

Justin Timberlake wears it well, and so do many other mega-stars. For women, they are back in as well, and look great in white with a black ribbon over a perfectly preppy outfit.

No. 2: Crushable Panama Hat

Courtesy of JCrew

For girls on-the-go, a crushable hat is so practical and looks great paired with almost anything. Try it in a Hawaiian floral print, bright flowers, polka dots or a neutral color that goes with everything.

No. 1: Fascinator

Courtesy of The Cotswold Frockshop

Back to London where the royal family attends soirees (evening parties) wearing tiny side-pinned hats called fascinators. Feathered, flowered or featuring mini hats, some fascinators need to be pinned while others, like the feathered one shown above, are set into headbands.

Musical stimuli is proven make your brain more active, and it can be your favorite song or one that teaches you how to do whatever you need. You can also take notes from your book(s) or websites. Last thing I can suggest is to take a break if you get frustrated. Hope that helps & if you have any questions just P.M. or comment me. Good luck :) ILMDGRL is right. I couldn't give better advice that she just did.  8)

Yes, but only if they wear something like a long T-shirt, long cardigan or shorts over them because leggings show a lot and aren't exactly trousers. >.>
