The accessory of the season isn’t a shoe or a bag. Here at Style.com, we’re going with the wide-brimmed hat. Variations on the statement-making topper turned up at Victoria Beckham, Acne, and Costume National, but, in our view, the brims to beat are Hedi Slimane’s at Saint Laurent. Since the Spring shows, floppy felt chapeaux have all but replaced fedoras on the street. Recently, we’ve spotted models Miranda Kerr, Tilda Lindstam, and Daiane Conterato wearing them. Elizabeth Olsen is in the fan club, too.

It’s not on my schedule right now.” [Vogue U.K.]
