Easy Outfit Upgrade: Add a Straw Hat

(Source: Bauergriffin.Com, PacificCoastNews.com)Summer is just around the corner and with it will come abbreviated hemlines, loose silhouettes and the excuse to wear very little clothing at all. With all that negative sartorial space, it's the perfect time to accessorize.

This year, we'll be taking a cue from actress Jessica Alba and topping off our easy outfits with a wide-brim fedora. Besides looking absolutely adorable, a straw hat can protect the delicate skin on your face from the summer's harsh rays. Fashion and function, ladies.
