Man, I love a good easy brimmed hat. Throw it on with a seemingly standard ensemble, and suddenly you’re casual chic. I especially love it when paired with something unexpected — a pencil skirt, a silk dress, fancy flats, fall wear, leather or lace.

Ladies, the panama and fedora are a spring, summer — and now fall — staple…

Don’t you love the idea of taking a felt version into cooler weather with sweaters, cords and boots?

Or not…

Either way, perhaps it’s time to get one. A few options:

    I love hats but don’t get to wear them enough…or maybe I just forget about them! Either way I just ordered a similar one from the J.Crew sale for CHEAP!! Hope it looks as darling on me as it does on all of these ladies! XoXo

    I LOVE panama hats and fedoras! Yet I don’t have one (maybe because I always think my big hair makes it look horrible most of the time). But I guess I need a great flat iron and I should be good to go ;) I love the looks you picked and would love to wear some of them this fall!

    I love this post! Unfortunately I have a massive head and am still on the hunt for a Panama hat that actually fits! I am pinning nearly every image from your post! xo

    You are right, these hats make any outfit look cooler!! I wish my tiny head could it into them. I did find a great selection at urban outfitters if there are any tiny headed people like me! Xo

    I love all these pics, especially the Jessica Alba and the Audrina Partridge ones with sweaters- the monochrome grays and beiges seem so chic and cozy…

    Huge panama fan, for me I feel it’s much more flattering than a fedora.

    I absolutely love the instant chic cool effect they give, being a hat lover I don’t know why I don’t own one!

    Ooh, I love that scrolly thing you did at the bottom. I don’t think I’ve seen that on blogs. You’re so high tech. :)
