An Instant Style Refresher We'll Tip Our Hats To

We haven’t been able to get wide-brim hats off our noggins (quite literally) ever since Pharrell introduced us to his infamous Vivienne Westwood topper at the Grammys. And, that's mainly because an oversized lid is the perfect solution for the in-between weather we’ve been experiencing lately. It’s too warm to wear that trusty wool beanie but not quite hot enough to go completely naked up top.
While woven, floppy styles give a nod to that ‘70s bohemian flair (totally perfect for those carefree summer days), more structured options have the power to both polish off and make any look effortlessly cooler. Wear on a weekend stroll paired with a leather bomber and jeans or on your commute to the office in a sleek power suit. Yes, the wide-brim chapeau is that versatile. So, we put our thinking caps on to cull 16 super-sleek headpieces that are guaranteed to change up your pre-spring look at the drop of a hat.
