If you want to put more fun into your summer wardrobe, a cute sunhat is a way to do it. Here are 3 popular styles of playful summer hats for women, with tips on how to style them.
1. Tassled Fedora
Straw Fedoras with their soft brims and indented crowns originate from menswear and have been super popular over the last few years with celebrities wearing them with everything from bikinis to wedding guest attire.
What’s new is the many ways these popular summer straw hats are embellished. One of the latest looks is a Fedora with tassel trim. This darling summer fedora with bold, bright tassels and tiny pompoms circling the brim has a festive feel that makes you feel like you are on vacation in Mexico or Brazil. It’s playful, flirty and adds a feminine spin to a traditionally masculine hat.
To style a hat like this simply pick a color from the trim and match it up with a top in the same color to make the hat pop. Kept the shorts neutral- too much color will make the eye dizzy. Neutral rope wedge sandals that match your skin tone will create the illusion of long, lean beach legs.
2. Colorblocked Floppy Sunhat
There’s nothing more summery than a big, beautiful, floppy beach hat and it’s super practical too, with all those dangerous UV rays. This blue floppy beach hat is a great example of where sunhats are at today. Colorful sunhats with cheery stripes are trending.
Here’s a tip about styling a floppy sunhat like this. Its size and color make such a statement that it looks really great with a white dress like this that shows it off. You can wear a floppy sunhat with any kind of sundress, but I particularly like it paired with this slim cut, off the shoulder style.
The wide brim style worn with the sexy off the shoulder neckline and narrow silhouette give this outfit a very chic feel. I love the way the soft, white straw baggy complements the fluid feel of the hat.
Note: You can also wear a floppy sunhat with a more boho look. For example, looser, unstructured clothes with a more natural feel, but the vibe of the outfit will be more casual and beachy. It’s always a very popular summer look.
3. Fringe-Trimmed Bucket Hat
Bucket hats have been popular, but usually, you see the preppy canvas types. It’s a bit of a new twist to see straw bucket hats decorated with raffia fringe. Almost a little Gilligan’s Island, I’d say.
This fringe trimmed bucket hat says casual, lazy summer days and looks darling with jeans and a tee when you are out and about walking around. It’s preppy, sporty and downright fun. You’ll also find these fringe bucket hats in soft summer colors which makes them really stand out. Blue seems to be a trend.
This hat is a great example of how far summer hats have come. At one time it was a hassle to pack a sunhat for a trip because you had to be careful not to crush it. New materials have made them squishee. They’re pricey, but they last for years no matter how hard you are on them.
Other Playful Summer Hats for Women
These are just a few of the many playful hats out there this summer. You’ll also find chic wide-brimmed sunhats embroidered with lettering, and cute sayings, Gondolier style boater hats, Hula skirt themed straw hats, and floppy beach hats monogrammed with your initials. So top off your summer with a great new hat and show your playful side!
