    Practical pieces in fashion deserve extra attention and celebrating, don’t you think? Practical piece number one, the hat! Keeps you warm in the winter and blocks the shade in the summer. Here are three stylish hats for summer and how to pair them with your favorite summer looks…

    Gray Wool Hat:
    summerhats-01It’s natural to associate wool with cool weather and itchy sweaters but this perfect wool hat brings the earthy-ness of wool into summer when paired with a tee shirt and jeans. A graphic tee keeps things playful and fun… just as summer should be.

    Brown Felted Hat:

    This wide brimmed hat has just enough western in it to make interesting without shouting cowgirl. Don’t be afraid to look to traditionally masculine brands when looking for the perfect hat. Keep things feminine by pairing it with the perfect skirt or dress.

    Straw hats aren’t just for the beach! They have the ability to make any outfit feel playful and laid back. I love this straw hat paired with a printed short and sweatshirt.summerhats-06
