Summer is still going strong and my favorite trend to keep cool while while looking chic is the boater hat. This iconic style became extremely popular in the 1930s with the yachting folks, before gaining mainstream attention in the 1950s for men and women. Since then it has endured as a classic topper for anyone wanting add that certain something to their ensemble.
This simple straw hat goes with nearly any modern day look, from a sleek tank dress to a sweet A-line skirt or paired with more casual jumpsuits and shorts, along with stripes for a nautical air. Anytime I pop on a boater hat I am instantly transported to a summer day in Europe.
