The Wide Brimmed Hat: What The Man Repeller Has to Say About It!


It will hide you from the spring rain and shade you from the summer sun. Now it’s covering you from the fall’s windy/messy hair days. Let’s fave it, your wide brimmed hat has always been there for you. This hat not only transfers from season to season with ease and style, it transfers from outfit to outfit!

When I read The Man Repeller’s hilarious tail of walking into a store, looking not so put together whilst wearing her wide brimmed hat, and being complimented for such, I thought it deserved its own post here as well.

The wide brimmed hat is the perfect statement for your toned down look. It gives you an effortless sense of cool and “put togetherness.”

To see how Leandra styled her hat three different ways, hop on over to her blog… you will not be disappointed.

  • Soft Wide Brimmed Hat 2 of 6

    It's kind of funny how texture and structure have such a huge impact on an item. Because this is a soft brimmed hat, it's bound to make a softer statement. Which may be a good thing for those of us who have just started experimenting with these big brims. 

    Available at Urban Outfitters for $58

  • Classic and Rugged 3 of 6

    A wide brimmed hat can be a classic statement,but style it the right way and it can also be a rugged statement. If you're going for a more traditional look simply pair this with a fitted pair of skinnies, oxfords, and a comfy sweater. If you are going for a rugged look  match it up with a pair of baggy boyfriend jeans, military style boots, a v-neck tee, and a cropped leather. 

    Available at for $52

  • The Wool Touch 4 of 6

    A touch of wool goes a long way. Plus a zipper and a leather brim? This hat is combining multiple trends and making you look on point!

  • The Panama Hat 5 of 6

    I own a few Panama hats, but most of mine are straw or a light fabric of making them wearable only in the summer. I love how this one is basically season-less.

  • The "Earthy" Hat 6 of 6

    I like to call this particular style of the wide brimmed hat the "earthy" hat because its color and ease of structure easily flows into a bohemian-styled look. 

    Available at Asos for $71.63
