Style of the Summer: The Fedora

My favourite accessory this summer is the fedora hat. It is effortlessly cool, can be worn with a multitude of casual chic outfits and is a godsend on bad hair days. It is regularly sported by such trend setters as Nicole Richie, Keira Knightly, Sienna Miller, Mischa Barton and Kate Moss.
The fedora is the must-have shape for the summer hat and it is not just for this season either, this style is completely timeless. It wins hands-down in the style stakes against other summer hats, such as the indie trilby, cowboy hat favoured by Britney et al, and the WAGs personal favourite, the baseball cap. Gucci have a beautiful fedora in their S/S 09 collection, as seen in their ad campaigns and on the catwalk (below), and TopShop also have a great selection of more affordable versions.
