How To Style Hats This Season

how to style hats
The ultimate blend of form and function has got to be the (not-so-humble) hat. While hats have been a signature of the stylish for decades, hats in all of their glorious forms are everywhere right now.

And given how quickly and easily they transform any outfit, it’s easy to see why they’re having another major moment. In addition to concealing bad hair days and late nights, (and not to mention being worth their weight in gold for staving off sun damage), hats are firmly on our list of wardrobe hard-workers and worthy of purchase.

Style bloggers, celebrities and street style stars of all kinds have long-relied on the humble hat to transform standard looks into much more stylish ones. And now, with so many affordable options to choose from such as these akubra hats for sale, this season is the perfect time to try this style trick for yourself.

At the bottom of the inspiration gallery I’ve rounded up all of the best affordable shopping options from Shopbop, ASOS, David Jones and The Iconic.

For wearability, the felted fedora is a winner in any language (and I’m especially loving any felted hat in an unusual colour as this is a great way to break up an all black outfit) though my personal favourite this season has GOT to be ‘The Matador’. Resembling a wider-brimmed felted boater, this hybrid specimen is dripping in chic (you’ll see it in the gallery).
