For real, is there anything this woman can’t do? Not only does she dominate the music industry and drop songs without notice only to perform the next day at the Super Bowl, but she also slays the fashion industry. Beyoncé’s most iconic look for 2016 though (if I haaad to chose just one) is her wide-brimmed hat. You know the one.
The hat first made its appearance in her “Formation” video and has been seen from city to city on her world tour. She also wore this extremely wide-billed hat to accept the Fashion Icon Award at the 2016 CFDA Awards because she knows a thing or two about what it means to be iconic. Clearly, she’s got the headgear (and the resume) to prove it.
And let me tell you something, if anyone could pull off a statement-making accessory like this, it would definitely be Yoncé. She’s probably the only person who convince me to try and do it, too. I mean, come on, who wouldn’t want to look that cool? Let’s take a look at this fashionable piece of headgear one more time and then get to shopping some similar pieces, shall we? I can’t wait to be all sorts of shaded under a wide brim this summer. What can I say? I’m feeling Bey-inspired.
Your newfound love for wide-brimmed hats all stared with this scene from the "Formation" music video.
Because I mean, it is a good look.
And then an even bigger version made an appearance when Bey accepted her award.
When you're larger than life, you need the wardrobe to match, you know?
Watch this one more time for good measure. Then let the shopping begin!
1. "Formation" Status
Wide-Brim Boater Hat, $15.99, Forever 21
This will get you in formation with Bey, as far as your headwear is concerned.
2. Relaxed Brim
Ace Of Something The Alaska Wide Brim Hat, $90, Urban Outfitters
This is the one accessory you need to have keep you cool (in more ways than one) this summer.
3. Fancy Wide Brim
French Connection Wide Brim Floppy Straw Hat, $36, ASOS
It doesn't get fancier than this. Wear this poolside for all of the Yoncé feels.
4. Flat Top
Catarzi Flat Top Wide Brim Hat, $65, ASOS
You can score this hat from the Men's section. I'm sure Bey would approve. A girl's gotta rock some menswear from time to time, you know?
5. Beach-Ready Wide Brim
The Depths of My Sol Sun Hat, $36.99, ModCloth
Who's ready for a Bey-cation?
6. Rounded Wide Brim Hat
LIDS Private Label Cut Edge Wide Brim Fedora Hat, $30, Lids
Take a different approach to the look by going for a rounded version instead of a flat top.
What would Beyoncé do? She'd make an entrance in a wide-brimmed hat, of course, and so should you.
