How to Wear A Boater Hat

Boater Hats

Hats in general have become such a huge trend lately! A couple of weeks ago I wrote about straw hats (read that here) and how they are expected to become really popular during Summer this year, and now to add to the growing list of Summer trends, I have a post dedicated to boater hats today!

We came to see them quite a bit during Fashion Month in September, although only recently have they become best-sellers among certain fast fashion stores such as Forever21, ASOS and H&M. For me, I love the look of a boater hat because they're so casual, yet really stylish; kind of like a fedora, although they are way more appropriate for the Summer.

Below I have two different ways to style a boater hat, created using Polvore, tell me how you would style one of these for an outfit in the comments!
