How hat tricks have taken over Hollywood
Not only do they look super-cool, they’re a great way of protecting your face from the harmful rays of the summer sun.
So what type of hat should you be plumping for to look bang-on-trend this season?
We’ve split stars’ summer hats into five key looks to help you get ahead:
Trilby: Definitely the top of the hat pack, this style is the hottest headgear for summer 09. A host of stars have been spotted sporting this look, which usually comes in felt or straw, from Anne Hathaway and Kylie Minogue, to Cameron Diaz and Jessica Alba. You can team yours with practically any summer ensemble, but we particularly love Jess’s with her gorgeous turquoise maxidress and flats. So what characterises a trilby? An indented crown and a pinch at the front.
Fedora: Recalling the glamour of the 70s, fedora hats look gorgeous paired with high-waisted jeans. But celebs are styling them up in all sorts of ways this summer, with Kate Hudson glamming hers up with a fab dress to watch the polo, and Anna Friel donning hers with shorts and gladiators at a festival.
Cowboy: Cheryl Cole and Elle Macpherson are probably the cowboy hat’s most avid fans, with Cheryl turning to hers every time she hits the beach, and Elle teaming hers with tees and jeans. Britney Spears is also an advocate. Just add aviators for the ultimate cool finish.
So what are you waiting for? Get a hat on!
