3 So-Cute Outfits To Pair With Your Summer Hat

We're all about triggering that Vitamin D, but when it comes to sun and heat, more can sometimes be less. So, we're calling in the gorgeous summer hat. While we've made finding the right one super easy, we understand it's a bit tougher to feel like you're pulling off your topper properly. But worry no more—we picked one of our favorite shadesters of the season and built three oh-so-cute outfits around it. From a day at the beach (hell yes, weekend trip to Rockaway!) to what to wear on that sunny-weather day date, these looks have got you covered—literally. As for the other four days of the week, well, we're sure you'll think of something.
Beach Ready
Sure, you go to the beach to soak up those rays, but there always comes a time when you want to nap in the comfort of your own personal shade. The beauty of a hat with this look is that it gives you that much needed break from the sun without carrying a cumbersome umbrella. Plus, with a cute bathing suit cover-up and the right beach bag and sandals, this look is as chic as it is practical.

Day Date
Walking around on The High Line, chilling on a roof top, going to an [insert your favorite popular sport here] game — there's no shortage of awesome summer pastimes. And nothing is more "who's that girl" for a first-time (or fifth-time!) date than the right topper paired with your so-cute frock. We love this look with punches of orange and that dreamy pair of day-to-night heels you've got to have this season.

Summer Shopper
Whether it's at the Flea Market or just around your neighborhood, when it's nice 'n' sunny, everyone's walking around outside. Sure, you might not be able to justify that splurge, but in a so-comfy outfit and the right shady companion on top, we bet you'll feel a lot better.
