There's no doubt that this season's biggest "It' accessory is a trendy summer topper. Proving itself in both fashion and function, the summer hat can polish off any chic ensemble, while providing much needed coverage from the sun's harmful rays. Snap up a classic fedora in lightweight straw, flirty with sparkles or gangster cool in a sleek, jet black. A cute, bucket shape can be neutral, embellished or even an iconic print. And you can never go wrong with a slouchy cowgirl hat, which always seems to drive the guys wild. Feel like trying something new? Sample slick new shapes like a military cap, visor or porkpie at this year's slew of street fairs and you'll be sure to have the hippest headgear around. Our hats off to you!
