Having never been a headwear enthusiast, I had to do some research in order to convince myself to conform. What I’ve found is that there is a style out there for everyone. Use this simple guide to help you find your perfect summer hat.

If you’re a girly-girl and a risk-taker, the floppy hat was designed with you in mind. Choose a striped one to make an elegant statement or a vibrantly-colored one for a bold look.

If you’re a more conservative shade-seeker, try the classic straw hat. Its smaller brim will give you a taste of the trend without the drama for an understated look that is sure to turn heads.

If you’re playful, then the fedora is right for you. Choose a hat with fun ribbons and fresh colors to add casual spice to any look.

If you’re sporty, there’s a hat for you too. Try a patterned play on a baseball cap for a trendy way to rock the new look without breaking out of your comfort zone.

Remember, there’s a hat for everyone so choose what’s right for you. Wear it with your bikini or pair it with that maxi dress that’s been sitting in your closet to make the perfect summer statement.
