The finishing touch.

Hats. Yes that’s right hats, to me they can be the finishing to touch to a fabulous outfit. Over the last few years the trend to wear hats has increased (thank god!) and now it can be an everyday accessory.

In the summer time, I think a hat can really finish off a look, especially to a maxi dress (or like this season the midi) – so don’t save them just for holidays or for the odd weekend on the beach, just get wearing them!


If you don’t know where to start, start plain. And once you get comfy with it, you can add your own ribbon, flowers or other bits to it. 

I’ve picked a few below and I am truly sorry but the one I’m wearing, which I’ve purchased in the last few weeks is not available online, in store only at large stores of Accessorize. I first saw this at Luton Airport back in May, however it was the last thing I needed at that time, and just like my recent dress purchase I assumed it would be online – nope! So the hunt began and I managed to get it in Milton Keynes store.

This one from Accessorize looks very similar and slightly cheaper at £18.

And this one below, is a good example of a plain version to invest in and at the sale price it won’t break the bank!

So if you love them then just get wearing them – and don’t worry about hat hair, just keep it on indoors – go on be a rebel!

And here’s me today debuting my new hat in preparation in taking it to Wimbledon tomorrow, I’m so going to need it with this heat!
