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

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

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

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.

Not really throughout my life but I guess since bullying is repeated teasing, once in fifth grade these kids made up the joke that my name(Su for those you that don't know) stood for StupidUgly, which I mean wasn't THAT bad but I was like what, 10 xD I mean I let it roll off but did end up crying in the shower once. My mom caught me and made me explain everything and made it better. So really, instead of hiding it I recommend talking to an adult about it if you're ever bullied, even tho keeping it a secret may seem like a good idea.  Ever since then I've never been bullied. I'm thankful fo that c;

YEs I have been bullied. A lot. People who I think are my friends are back stabbers. They suddenly just like turn on me. I've had rumoursspread about me and I was so sad. I hated being bullied. But the best thing to do if you are being bullied is to hold your head high and not cry. Because if you show a single tear that is what the bully wants And it will take you as an easy target and will bully you more and more and more and more. And bullies won't stop until you stand up to them.
