Fedora Fever

found here
Hats are one of those accessories that you can either totally pull off, or totally not. If you are a hat person though, one of your must have summer accessories is the straw fedora. Perfect for a day at the beach or strolling around town, the fedora can make you look chic and totally summer-esque. Remember though that this is a day time look ONLY. Wearing your fedora on date-night with your hubby or out to for a night of dancing with the girls was soooo Britney Spears circa 2001, definitely don't want to make that mistake again. 

Here are a few key points to remember when looking for your perfect fedora:
  • The brim should sit just above your eyebrows; any lower and the hat will swallow you whole. 
  • You should choose a fedora based on the proportions of your body; small, petite frames should opt for a smaller brim, while curvy body types should look for wider brims
  • How your hair is worn with your fedora is crucial- a side-swept pony will make the look totally effortless
  •  Have fun with color and patterns. There are a ton awesome prints, colors and styles out there so be adventurous
Here are some of my fedora picks (all price ranges) for this summer:
