Surprising Summer Trend: Wide-Brimmed Hats


Whether it’s due to the increasing awareness of melanoma, or Coachella’s boho influence on twenty-somethings, wide-brimmed hats have made a comeback. The hats, often deemed matronly or stuck in the ’70s, have seen their share of press, often among the trendy set, from Vanessa Hudgens to boho queen Kate Moss. This is not to say the trend’s reserved for the young and bohemian, however. Pair with a maxi dress like Lily Aldridge (below) or fitted black jeans à la  Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Added benefits: hides a bedhead and provides sun protection (just don’t skrimp on the SPF!)
