Summer Hats: Where to Buy Them, Which ones to Choose, and How to Wear Them

straw hats for summer

In the summer months, hats become a staple for me.

There are two styles of hats I wear regularly in the summer: baseball caps and straw hats. There are tons of different hat styles out there, but baseball caps and straw hats are the two I want to talk about today.

Where to buy them, which ones to choose, and when to wear them.

STRAW HATS:

My favorite brand of straw hat is Brixton.

I’ve owned several Brixton brand hats and they’re long lasting and great quality. You can find them at Nordstrom, Zappos, Urban Outfitters, and Amazon.

Remember my post from last week about my favorite shopping hack?? Buy them at places with free shipping and free returns so you can try them on at home and send it back if it doesn’t work! Hats can be tricky, so sometimes you have to try a couple before you find the right one for your head.

For an everyday look, I recommend a fedora style hat with a medium brim. Save the wide brim for the beach.

 

How to wear them:

I love wearing straw fedoras to the beach or pool, with summer dresseswith my basics to add a little personality, or with summer skirts. Here’s a little inspiration.

BASEBALL CAPS:

My favorite places to buy baseball caps are Nordstrom and American Eagle.

If you don’t own any baseball caps, start with a solid black one – it’s a staple in my closet! I also recommend a neutral colored one, like navy, olive green, or blush because they go with basically everything.

Personally I love the ones with a symbol, logo, word, or phrase, because they add some fun to summer basics. I’ve linked some favorites below. 

 

How to wear them:

They’re a great option for the park or the pool with kids, I love wearing them with casual dresses to make the look a little more sporty, and they’re a great option with any basic jeans or shorts and t-shirt outfit. You can even wear them with slightly dressier outfits like this denim skirt and button up look.
