Trend Alert: Leave Your Hat On

Leave your hat on…

celebrities in hats

If there’s one thing we’ve noticed from the street style shots at fashion week, it’s that broad-brimmed hats are the must-have accessory of the season. From Jak & Jil to Stockholm Street Style, the fashionistas are all sporting some serious headgear. Hats also made a big scene of the runways – Hedi Slimane debuted ‘70s-style floppy hats for Saint Laurent S/S13, while variations turned up at Victoria Beckham, Acne and Costume National.

The beauty of the hat is that its one of the most versatile style staples. Add it to almost any outfit for a chic update or for an effortless off-duty model style. This season, stock up on basic colours with interesting details like a wide band or subtle embellishments. For a touch of bohemian glamour, rock an extra-wide brim at night or keep it cool and casual with trans-seasonal basics like silk blouses, collared dresses and light sweaters.
