3 tips on finding the best wide brim hats for fall

with the first official day of fall right around the corner [september 23rd for those wondering ;)] it’s time to start transitioning your wardrobe for the long awaited cooler temps.

luckily, that doesn’t mean ditch your entire wardrobe and find new pieces, it just means add in a few extra pieces here and there and transition your current pieces right into the new season.

one of my favorite ways to transition my summer wardrobe into fall, and bring out a few spring pieces too, is to add a wide brim hat and a pair of booties to my outfit. the hat not only warms up your outfit, but is the real MVP for all bad hair days. and booties, well… is there anything more fall than a pair of booties?! grab a PSL and you’re basically as fall as it gets.

shopping for the perfect fall hat doesn’t have to be challenging. i always look for 3 key things:

fall outfit inspo

1: a versatile color

before buying anything i always think of at least 3 different ways i can wear it. that goes for anything. my only exception is formal wear. funky hats are fun and all, but if you can only wear it with one specific outfit in your closet, really think on whether or not it’s the best way to spent your hat fund. if funky and fresh is what you had in mind and well, you only wanted to wear it one way— power to ya!

2: a wide brim

i always borrow a page from goldilocks with this one. i like a wide brim, but not too wide of a brim. i want to still be able to hug friends without decking them in the face with my hat. but i also really like the look of a wide brim, so i always try on my hats to make sure they’re just right. so far, this one is a favorite!

3. sizing.

you don’t want to find the perfect hat just for it to fly away the second the cool wind picks up! but at the same time, you don’t want a hat that is too tight and creases your hair or even worse, causes headaches, anyone else get these? i typically wear a size small in my favorite brand, lack of color, and have to try-on any ‘one size fits all’ hats, because well… i’m not always a one size kinda girl. but when it does fit just right, you’ve struck gold.

    Needed this roundup! I have all the summer hats, but none for fall except one navy one that I rarely wear. I need a more neutral one. Great roundup!

    I love a good hat, and I agree that wide brims are the best, though sometimes I do go a little too wide!

    I always prefer when hats have sizing! Brixton is my favorite hat brand for a few years now because of that!
