The one underrated fashion accessory that every closet needs

Best fashion accessories hat bench style by belle

Hi ya friends :). First, thanks so much for all the great comments on my last post about being a blogger. If you missed it, you should check it out! Gosh it feels like it’s been ages! I’ve been doing a bad job balancing life and blogging but I’m back with a quick post to talk about one of my favorite accessories that doesn’t get the love it deserves.

The almighty hat!

Raise your hand if you’re a hat lover like me (*raises hand). Have you ever had a bad hair day? Or a day where you just felt like hiding a little bit? Or a day when you wanted to feel extra fly? Hat’s got you covered. See what I did there? lol. Just pick a hat, throw it on and you’ll be feeling like a dime in no time!

Fun fact: Did you know there’s such a thing as hatfishing? Google it but don’t shoot the messenger. Never underestimate the power of a hat.

My three favorite moments to wear hats below:

1: When I want to add that extra touch to an outfit

Side story. When I had the idea for the shots below, they were planned around the yellow tee I found for really cheap during a Zara sale. When I woke up that morning though, I just didn’t have the energy to do anything with my hair and I wasn’t feeling the shots until I threw on that hat and the boom! You couldn’t tell me nothing. Ended up being one of my favorite photo shoots to date. Congrats friend, you’ve just been hatfished lol.

2: When I want to call a vacation into existence

Yep you read that right lol…And when the vacation eventually happens. While hats can up your game big time, they are also functional especially on the beach, when traveling to hot destinations or even at home in the hot summer months. When I went to Cuba earlier this year, I bought a hat purely for vain purposes but it ended up being my most valuable asset on that trip; I wore it everywhere to protect me from the sun!

3: When I need to go the gym early in the morning

…because we’re not all Beyonce and we don’t always wake up like this ha! I have a couple faux leather baseball hats that I love to throw on for a trip to the gym on days when I workout in the morning. It just removes that extra step of making my hair look presentable, and also adds a little edge to my workout clothes. It’s also super easy to clean post-workout so that’s a win.

That’s it folks! What are your thoughts?

    I’m always thinking to myself that I should wear hats more often but just never really pull the trigger and buy them. Ball caps I can get away with but I can’t seem to justify anything else. I want to be a Hat girl!! lol xox- The Babbling Babe

    I’m a hat lover but I’ve run out of places to store them. I enjoy making Derby hats and wearing them as well. They are a fun statement piece!

    I just received my first, truly loved hat addition for my wardrobe. I love it and wish I would have added hats earlier!
