Trend Alert!: Oversized Hats

One accessory that’s all over red carpets lately is the wide-brimmed hat!

Dramatic hats are topping off glamorous gowns and everyday outfits alike, and everyone from Beyoncé to Cardi B to Jennifer Lopez has gotten in on the trend.

Hats aren’t for everyone, but maybe it’s time to give the fashion favorite a try? Summer is just around the corner, and you can always start with a more casual approach for the beach or some fun in the sun! If you’re in need of some style inspiration for how to make the look work, there are options.

Cardi B is a clear proponent of the hat and dress combo, wearing a luxe mint green look for a performance in Las Vegas. She donned yet another hat for Beautycon in NYC.
