2011 Summer hats- The fedora (again) and the floppy hat

As far as every day accessories go, hats tend to be the forgotten child in the closet. To see a celebrity wear a fashion forward hat is nothing new, or fashion forward females living in a city may sport them. But for people who are not celebrities or not living in a fashion friendly city, wearing a lovely hat may seem like a bit too much.

However, I really believe that this summer will change the mindset that hats are "too much". Check out the pictures below to see how a beautiful hat can polish off your outfit. Straw fedoras will  be huge again this summer, as well as the classic grey, black, and white fedoras. To me, what makes fedoras so fun is you can dress them up or down. They are cute with dresses and also cute with a casual tee and jeans, (pictures below give an example of each look)

The floppy hat is back!
 I adore floppy hats but have yet to wear one. They look so glamorous, especially with beautiful dresses.

               I love this picture...
