It appears that wearing a hat now serves a much greater purpose than purely keeping out the sun. Yes, the benefits of shielding our faces include longer lasting youthful looking skin, however the addition of a statement or staple hat also has the ability to enhance and stylise your sometimes lacklustre and uninspired summer wardrobe.
You know those days where it just gets so hot that putting on anything other than one layer in the form of a paper thin dress is absolutely out of the question? Let alone adding accessories or putting on any kind of footwear that doesn't provide the airflow achieved by a pair of thongs? Sometimes the result is an outfit that's cool, (as in temperature), but not so cool, (as in street style cred). As much as we love summer , in some instances it has the ability to block all our creative individuality, forcing us to frolic around in ensembles lacking oomph and pizzaz… enter THE HAT. Not only does it protect your precious skin from harmful UV rays, but the hat also has an innate ability to add style, mystery and allure to any old summer dress.
