Sunshine! Beach weather! Beautiful blue skies! Though the holiday weekend started off a little rocky (or rather, rainy) in the Tri-State area, Memorial Day was a gorgeous holiday full of the beautiful weather we’ve all been waiting to enjoy for months.
But to keep yourself protected – as well as looking totally chic – all summer long, having a few ladylike hats on hand is crucial for any smart and style-conscious girl. This week’s Goodwill gem both shades your face from the sometimes-harsh summer sun, and ensures you look absolutely fantastic while enjoying the beautiful outdoors. The classic straw styling will look great with your entire summer wardrobe – from cute cropped pants and colorful blouses to airy patterned sundresses – and even your favorite swimsuit. It’s an all-purpose, wear-everywhere accessory that will get you through the season, and years of summers to come.
Style any outfit for summer in an instant. No matter what you feel like wearing, any ensemble looks immediately summer-ready when topped off with a big, glamorous wide-brimmed hat like this one. For a more feminine look that is still totally relaxed and appropriate for the summer season, try pairing this pretty headpiece with a flowing, silky maxi dress in a stunning floral print or bright neon shade. For a super casual weekend look that works for shopping around town or heading out to the beach, try putting it on with something like what I’ve chosen here – cute, tailored shorts in a brilliant sky blue hue and a loose, comfy t-shirt.
Lovely, large, ladylike hats like this one never go out of style, and the classic shape adds an instant touch of class and femininity to any look – even one as simple as a pair of shorts and your favorite, well-worn tee.
