Perfect time to start thinking about a new summer hat. This year there is an ever growing emphasis on hats!

Have you ever considered just how amazing the difference a hat makes to an outfit? A good hat can turn an otherwise simple outfit into a real statement.

3 Simple Style Tips How to Wear Your Summer Hat

 1. Match!

Wearing a hat the same colour as your outfit always works well and looks carefully planned. As most of us do’t want 100’s of hats to go with each outfit a good trick is to buy one that’s a colour you already wear often.

Version 3

Khaki is hot on the trend scene this summer so why not invest in a khaki coloured hat.

2. Brighten!

Hats can be brilliant for brightening an otherwise neutral outfit. Love the shocking pink hat below – it gives the simple cream summer dress a totally new dimension.



3. Fun!

I mean it – summer hats are meant to be fun – so make yours fun. Make it work for you – a good test is to see weather it makes you laugh when you see yourself in the mirror – if yes then it’s a deal!

Hi! I’m Yvonne, a 40 something (wink) Kiwi, living in Zurich. I love fashion, travel, shopping and food – believing chocolate will cure almost anything!

  1. Hats really are wonderful but for some reason many of us only think of them in a utilitarian sense.
    Hats can have such a powerful style impact that I think we shy away from the commitment. I’m thinkin it takes a certain amount of fashion confidence and commitment that many women aren’t certain they have. It’s gutsy to wear a hat!
    Then there’s the unfortunate dent they leave in your hairstyle when you remove them…
    You look fabulous in all of these hats. Your husband did a beautiful job. A really FUN post!!

    1. Hi Marilee,

      I totally agree re the powerful style impact a hat can be!
