So, you’ve started cultivating a wardrobe for the warmer months ahead, including everything from flowing picnic dresses to sought-after sandals and even a colourful set of swimmers to top it all off—but are you really entirely dressed for summer if you haven’t added to your hat collection too?
There’s arguably nothing more important to a summer wardrobe than a hat, an accessory that’s not only going to protect your skin (paired with your SPF, of course) but do so in bright-coloured, full-coverage style.
Thankfully, the options available have never been more abundant, from a wide array of bucket hats in florals and raffia to baseball caps and floppy silhouettes in neutral colourways, tie-dye and more, all with unexpected details that are sure to provide a welcome mood-boost as well.
Whatever you have planned for the next few months ahead, be it picnics in the park or days spent lounging at the beach, you’ll definitely be needing to add a hat to your head-to-toe ensemble. There’s perhaps nothing more quintessential to Aussie summer styling than a straw hat, whether it be wide-brimmed or boater, the classic staple will forever be a much-loved addition to pair effortlessly with summer dresses and beyond. Both stylish and practical, you can’t go past these options. This season you can’t deny the allure of the bucket hat, which expertly feeds that need for a nostalgia hit in our summer looks. Whether you’re after a terry-towelling creation in the year’s most on-trend colour or looking to add a bright alternative in the form of vibrant floral prints, when it comes to hats this year the bucket style is certainly taking centre stage. Believe it or not, baseball caps are having a major moment right now. Just look to Hailey Bieber’s latest streetwear looks, where the style muse has regularly been seen sporting a new favourite from Australian label Bec + Bridge. Long gone are the days of stealing your brother’s old hat though, instead, opt for these stylish recreations.It wouldn’t be quite right to compile a summer wardrobe that didn’t consist of vibrant prints and eclectic florals, so look to this season’s signature beach hats that provide the perfect way to finish off your summer wardrobe.
