Top Hat & Sunglass Pairings

Trends come and go, but sunglasses and hats will always be there to take us from wintry weather to sun-soaked days. Even your beloved classics—the Wayfarers you’ve had for years, the wide-brim hats and fedoras that make you feel cool with little to no effort—can use a refresh. And that seems to be the recurring theme with this year’s summer eyewear and hat trends.

Hats are the perfect way to switch up your look for summer. Whether you’re looking for a way to protect your face from sun, a method to cover up a bad hair day, or a new, stylish accessory, a hat is definitely the way to go! It can easily transform an outfit from plain-Jane to spectacular in seconds.

But which style is right for you?

Wide-Brimmed Hat
Have you tried a wide-brimmed hat? This is a summer staple every It girl should have in her closet. It’s versatile, easy to wear, and protects you from the sun. This is a less casual option than a baseball cap, but it’s also one that everyone can pull off (and with any outfit).

Panama Hat
A panama hat can be the perfect finishing touch for a variety of styles, but it complements the bohemian look extremely well. A midi skirt or a pair of palazzo pants are a great way to balance your outfit when donning an eye-catching hat.

Floppy Sun Hat
A floppy sun hat is the ideal accessory to finish off a chic look. It’s perfect for a lunch date with friends in the city or roaming a seaside market during your beach vacation. Plus, they’re flattering no matter your face shape.

Boater Hat
Feeling a little flirty? Throw on a boater hat to finish off your outfit! Hats like these are great for a picnic in the park or a fun outdoor date with your significant other. Its sweet, demure vibes will go perfectly with a playful sundress.

Sunnies can elevate a simple, everyday outfit to superstar level. They can even make you look better when lounging by the pool or strutting down the sidewalk. So in the spirit of warmer weather (and UV protection) we’ve rounded up five pairs of sunglasses that we’ll be adding to our summer aesthetic.

Be Square
Oversized rectangular frames dominated the runways for spring/summer 2019. Embrace this silhouette for an effortlessly chic look all season long.

Cat Eyes
A true classic, refresh your cat-eye sunglasses collection this season. From crystal and pearl frames to color block and ombre lenses, elevated styles of this signature silhouette are one of the hottest trends of the season. Wear these shades to add an eye-catching element to any outfit.

Irregular Shapes
From designers such as Coach, fall in love with one of the industry’s favourite sunglass trends this season. An irregular shape is sure to grab the attention and turn heads in real life. Buy into this ultra-feminine aesthetic that’s everywhere this season.

Mirrored Shades
While this aesthetic may be nothing new, mirrored sunglasses definitely are having a moment this summer. Try out this timeless trend to elevate any summertime ensemble.

Carol Liu
Carol’s look may be minimalist, and her favorite clothing lines known for simplicity, but she works her role as Marketing Coordinator to the maximum and with her super-power energy. Organized and button down, Carol rolls up those chic sleeves and gets it done. Throw in a journalism background to keep it real, and a great quick smile to deliver the spin. Which reminds us, she’s fast too. Must be all that running.
