The best thing about summer fashion is hats. They either complete or completely change a outfit. One of the most versatile hats is the Trilby or Fedora. The difference being the width of the brim which generally smaller on a trilby and the back of the brim is more upturned. You can wear them with everything from your bikini on the beach or with wellies at a festival, with your jeans for strolling around town and by accessorising with flowers you can even wear it for a formal occasion. Each season the list of celebs wearing the Trilby/Fedora gets longer and the trend is still going strong.
