by Kali Borovic

Ah, the fedora. It's back, bigger and better than ever, so now is the time to wonder — how do you style a fedora? There are about a million ways to incorporate a summertime hat into your outfit, but it can still be one of the most intimidating accessories in your beach bag. Finding the right color is completely up to your taste, but regardless of which hue you choose there are quick and easy ways to make fedoras look stylish.

Whether you're at the pool or hitting the road for a few days, the oversized fedora does wonders to any warm weather ensemble, regardless of occasion (OK, so maybe don't wear it to a black tie dinner). Not only do they shield you from the sun (take that, melanoma!), they keep you looking fabulous at the same time. Whether it's a bad hair day or you're simply looking to up the ante on a plain outfit, the fedora can completely transform your with the toss of the hat.

You don't have to be the ultimate fashionista to pull off this accessory. There are as many different styles of hats as there are women to wear them, so finding the right one is the key to fedora success. Take it slow or dive right in with these five ways to wear the fedora.

1. Swimming in accessories

For all women who aren't afraid to pile on the accessories, this one's for you. The great thing about a fedora is that it goes with just about anything. The more the merrier when it comes to extras.

2. Pop of color

Use the hat to add a little color to a mostly black outfit. A fedora can add just the right amount of personality and amp up the chicness of a plain look.

3. Simple and sweet

Ease into the trend with a simple outfit that you feel confident in. There's no need to go all-out right away, so take your time by adding a hat to a look you already love.

4. Perfectly printed

Stand out with a printed outfit and fabulous hat. There's no better time than summer to try out a bold new look.

5. Breezy Bohemian

Keep your colors light and pack on the accessories to make for a finished look that isn't over the top.

Add these five looks to your closet and you'll be a fedora pro in no time.
