The Hat You Need for Every Occasion

It’s time to conquer your fears of hat hair and amp up your outfits.

The Hat You Need for Every Occasion

A statement hat can instantly take a simple dress or plain t-shirt and jeans combo to a look that can part the streets of NYC. With summer beaconing to us, we need to be prepared in terms of style and protection from the rays. There is a hat for every season, occasion, and style- so why are people so afraid of adding hats to their accessory collection? It’s time to conquer your fears of hat hair and amp up your outfits with a runway-ready hat collection to welcome the summer months.

1. The fedora

The fedora is a multi-purpose hat that can work with casual outfits on the beach or easily work with dressier looks to pull everything together and add a touch of Cali flair. It can come in a breathable woven straw material- easy for fitting into a beach bag- or a sturdier felt which can crossover into the colder months. Street style or beach style, the fedora has your head covered.

2. Floppy hat

Classic and dramatic fashion is always in style, so why not play up your inner Chanel? The bigger the hat, the better. Sprawl out on your crisp white towel in Palm Springs and pair your statement piece with oversized Prada shades to really get the full effect. Imagination works too, but really, the floppy hat is a need for the summer months spent soaking up the sun.

3. Beret

Don't be mistaken, the beret is not a hat solely reserved for the French. However, it is important to wear it correctly to avoid looking like a mushroom (oops!) Wear the beret slightly to the side and allow your side part to peak out and pull the other side slightly forward from your hairline. Pouf it ever so slightly and voila, you're looking like Rihanna and Gigi Hadid themselves- but better.

4. Wide brim felt hat

I am using this as a broad category for anything that isn’t quite a fedora, but not yet a floppy hat. These hats can add boho flare or a timeless essence to an outfit depending on how you choose to style it. Wide brim hats have a certain air of sophistication about them, and all should experience what they can do for your favorite outfit.

Now that summer is in full swing, it is the perfect excuse to add to your collection or start a new one to protect yourself from the sun’s rays in style. Whether you want to spice up an outfit, cover -up a bad hair day, or to add extra glam to your day- a hat is a positive addition to anyone’s wardrobe. Let the hat frenzy begin.

Falling For Fall

Super Cute Home Decor and Food Ideas for the Autumn Season.

Jamie Cahoon

I don't know about you but Autumn is my favorite season of the year. The leaves are falling, the air is crisp and tops of the mountains begin to be sprinkled with snow. Being as I'm not Haloween's biggest fan, I love to decorate my home with super cute fall decorations. I have found 11 of the cutest DIY decor items that are both inexpensive and adorable. Ballin' on a college kids budget makes for fun craft nights instead of buying the items at a ridiculous mass produced price.

Slavery Was NOT Abolished

Jeevti from Pakistan would like to tell you so herself.


Unfortunately, at this time of year, we tend to overlook how incredibly blessed we are. We live in a free world, where we should not have to fear being penalized for our gender, sexual orientation, beliefs, or values. This is a fact we take for granted; in many other countries, simply being born female makes you an immediate target.

My Ethnicity

Hispanic is not a race... it’s an ethnicity. The term Hispanic describes a group of people whose common thread is language and/or culture. I’m a Hispanic woman born in Argentina to Korean parents. I self-identify as Hispanic/Latina and my personal experiences can’t be summarized by the color of my skin or the languages on my tongue. That is because every single person in the universe has a unique experience. Whether someone labels me as Korean or Argentine or American, that will never change my experiences as a Spanish speaker, immigrant, child of divorced parents, Californian, college graduate (Go Bears!), omnivore, writer, or any other label I choose for myself.

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.
