The British weather is unusually scorching and nothing completes your heat wave outfits better than a great summer hat. If you’re reaching for the cliché straw beach number or sporty cap, then you better think again, as there’s a new trend in town — felt fedoras.
The fedora style comes and goes out of fashion, but as the weather gets hotter, the felt versions aren’t typically the first port of call. Well, that was until Cara ditched her typical beanie and became BFFs with a rather chic royal blue fedora. From embracing the stateside sunshine to relaxing on tropical beaches or simply going about her daily business, she’s working the accessory into so many different looks that we’ve developed a major case of hat envy.
The great news is that the full-brimmed beauties are really easy to pick up on the British high street at the moment. Whether it’s a stiff or floppy-brimmed version you’re after, take a look at our top five, including a few non-felt versions for those who simply can’t resist a straw finish in summer.
