Over the past couple of years I’ve accumulated quite the collection of hats. I went from hardly wearing them to finding the classic accessory essential to every season, especially spring. Here’s why hats are so great and the styles I’m loving at the moment.
For starters, and the most obvious fact, they keep your face shaded from the sun—I know duh. But really having one handy in your car at all times or a few styles to choose from makes you more likely to actually put one on. Anti-aging at its easiest. And the wider the brim, the better.
Another style I’ve been all about lately—I’m still hunting for the right one to add to my hat wall—is a Bolero hat. I love the vintage feel of the style and the fact that it’s the perfect daytime option when I feel the need to hide a bad hair day.
Another reason I’ve found hats to be handy is their ability to quickly change up the entire vibe of your look. Case in point, baseball caps. They add a sporty, cool-girl element that you can pretty much add to most looks. Plus, you can claim your team if that’s your thing.
