There are lots of ways to spice up an outfit, but nothing makes a statement quite like adding a hat. With fall just around the corner, we snagged some items from local boutiques, hat companies, and from a simple sweep of a current wardrobe to show you just how quickly one simple accessory can add some flair to more traditional styles.
Whether you are dressing casual and comfy, or dressy or funky, a trendy or traditional hat can be paired with it all. It boils down to what you feel good in, the confidence you have to go for it, and what fits your personality and style. There’s no wrong way to do it, so take a peek, find a look you love and take a chance. It’s time to make a statement.
