For the summer, a straw fedora would go well with summery printed shirts, shorts, a t-shirt or even a nice linen shirt for a refreshing look. Ribbons, badges and even feathers can be found on fedoras in cool bright colours and texture.

There are a few tips to wear a fedora, like how it should not be too high on your crown or too low till your eyebrows, as a fedora should not be hiding your face (the face is always the main attraction).  You can choose form smaller to larger brims depending on your liking and we suggest not tilting your fedora at a ridiculous angle, a small tilt is just enough.
