Wide brim hats: 3 ways to wear an OTT headpiece all year round


The hat is having a big fashion moment and we're lovin' it. Whether you like a Western vibe or prefer a well to do felt style — everyone suits a hat this season. The biggest trend (no pun intended) is the wide-brim hat. Straight, curved or floppy, it's sure to put the icing on the cake to any ensemble all year round.

Winter: Add some Parisian chic with a stripe tee, furry coat, grey boots and top it off with a curved wide brim hat — perfect.
