Hello my lovelies! Summer season is in full swing and one of the questions I get asked all the time is how to style a summer hat. Adding a hat can change the vibe of an entire look, and it also adds a layer of protection for the sensitive skin on our faces from potentially harmful UV rays!

 I have to admit the one summer accessory I couldn’t live without would have to be this stunning hat by Cuyana. Why, you may ask? Because a summer hat is the one accessory that is GUARANTEED to take all of your looks to the next level. I love this hat so much, I gifted one to my mom for Mother’s day and she loves to wear it just as much as I do! So, if you want to get in on the summer hat trend and are looking for some outfit inspo, then keep scrolling to see how I styled this fantastic hat 3 fabulous ways!

STRAW HAT BY CUYANA:

Before we talk about HOW to style a summer hat, lets talk about the hat itself! The Panama Hat by Cuyana is a very high quality hat with a fantastic price point; It’s actually HAND woven in Ecuador! It comes in 5 different colors and is universally flattering. I have an extremely small head so it’s hard to find hats that fit me but this one does! I’m wearing the smallest size which is a size 56 and it has an adjustable band on the inside of the hat so you can make it even smaller if need be!

TAN MAXI DRESS (ONLY $59):

This racer back maxi dress from Treasure & Bond checks all the boxes for an ideal summer dress. Firstly, It’s made of a ribbed knit material that makes this dress look far more expensive than it is. Second, the tan color is incredibly chic and luxurious. Thirdly, you will not find a more comfortable dress, I guarantee it! Pair it with a fabulous summer hat and you’ve got the perfect summer look. I’m wearing an XS for size reference.

JEAN JACKET:

Adding a 3rd layer is a surefire way to bring a look together, and in this look I opted for a casual denim jacket by FRAME denim. I LOVE the ruched sleeves on this one, intuitive design features just get me! If the designer option is out of your budget take a look at this one for less from Express! I’m wearing an XS in this summer staple.

SHOP LOOK 2 (TOP IS UNDER $50):

STRAPLESS PEPLUM TOP:

My next tip for how to style a summer hat is to pair it with a stylish strapless top! Because you have exposed shoulders, adding a hat can help balance out your outfit and create the illusion of more coverage. This peplum top from Express is the perfect example and it comes in 2 colors to suit any color palate. I’m wearing an XS in this tastefully sexy top.

ONE SHOULDER DRESS:

My last tip for how to style a summer hat is to pair it with a one shoulder dress or top! Using the same principle, adding a hat to a dress or top that leaves your shoulders exposed gives the illusion of more coverage and adds balance to your look. This ribbed knit one shoulder dress by Rails is the perfect example of the type of dress to style a summer hat with and how GORGEOUS is this shade of blue? I’m wearing an XS is this fabulous summer staple.
