It's difficult to pinpoint exactly when it started, but the hat has been making a strategic and stylish comeback over the past few seasons. Perhaps a backlash from the fedora era, the most on-point hats have an exaggerated, wide brim. In the fall, we saw felt and wool wide brim hats, and for spring, they've been replaced by an array of straw hats—from classic Panama styles to floppy sunhats and wide-brim city hats.

If you're hesitant to try one of these seasonal toppers anywhere but the beach, you're not alone. How many times have you overheard someone say, "I'm not a hat person." They key to carrying off a hat like J. Crew's perfect  Panama  or Master and Muse's slick city hat is confidence. But, if you need something a little more concrete, look for inspiration from celebrities and the street style set. A long, breezy maxi dress makes a perfect match for a sun hat, as does anything white, naturally. A straw hat is just a stylish, easy way to bring a coastal, seaside vibe to your everyday attire.
