Sometimes, when I watch Amber Riley as Mercedes on Glee, I feel like she's one of my own girlfriends. The way she acts, the catchy phrases she uses ... I have no shame in admitting she may actually be cooler than my friends, too. It's OK, I love them still.
So when I saw Riley step outside in this fedora, the epitome of cool summer style, I got a little more girl envy and decided I needed to find one of my own. Sure, the whole UGGs in summer component to this look is sort of definitely questionable. But the hat is tres chic, don't you think?
For a while now, I've had my qualms about making the fedora investment. Will it look silly on me? Will I get too hot? Am I just not as hipster coolio as a hat of this stature suggests?
Alas, it's time. And lucky for us this hat is one item that is absolutely flooding the stores right now. Take a looksee at these 10 great fedoras, perfect for all different styles and tastes this summer season.
This Panama hat ($58, JCrew.com) is a classic neutral, and also available in white.
There's probably nothing in the universe I love more than a good deal. These two fedoras (left, $9.80, right, $12.80, Forever21.com) are stylish steals that you won't regret only wearing once in a while.
Olive green is one shade that plagues my summer wardrobe, and this Mint by Goorin colorblock braided straw fedora ($29, UrbanOutfitters.com) would be totally complementary.
A little more light and airy than the others, these Seeberger straw open weave trilby hats ($34.48, Asos.com) feature an open weave design that I love.
The cute style of the weave on this one is what gets me. This tea stained straw fedora ($12.50, CharlotteRusse.com) just screams "Wear me to the beach!"
Preppy fedoras, for all! These two tone straw fedoras ($29, Nordstrom.com) come in six different pastel color combinations.
