Glamorous Summer Hats

I love the glamour of hats, whether it be a fedora in the winter or a straw trilby in the summer. They just seem to add a great twist to an outfit, a bit of va va boom and sex appeal. 

You only have to sit watching the old black and white movies to see the elegance and insouciance it lends an outfit. Who wouldn't love to look like Marilyn or Elizabeth Taylor, peeking out seductively beneath the brim of a hat?

They also happen to be brilliant for festivals and summer holidays, stopping the dreaded squinty eyes in an instant.

Anyway, here's a round-up of some of my favourite straw hats which are out there at the moment. Who says you can't cover up in style this summer?
