Trending all over the fashion nation, hats have never been more in style. Back in the 70’s wide-brimmed hats were all the rage, now decades later they’ve emerged to perfect any outfit. The great thing about these hats is the way they instantly pump up any outfit from day to night.

There are so many ways to pair a wide-brimmed hat, just admire the images below.  Pair it with black trousers, a chiffon button-up blouse, outlandish statement jacket for a high fashion look. Tone it down with skinny jeans, a clean and crisp white shirt, you can add some edge with a mini skirt and leather jacket, or be date ready with a LBD and heels. 20131203-110435.jpg
