We love hats, especially for summer – they’re a celebrity fashion favourite. They’re the perfect way to accessorise any outfit, from maxi dresses to denim cut-offs and t-shirts. It’s just not always easy finding the right style, so the fashionistas at Melbourne’s Uni Hill Factory Outlets have come to the rescue with their handy style tips.  The floppy hat Perfect for your bohemian-chic days when you let the hippy inside you venture out. Summer screams loose-fitted tops and maxi dresses, which work best with a wide, floppy hat. Be brave; opt for big styles and save your face from direct sun. The secret is to wear the hat – don’t let the hat wear you! cap The go-to cap The best choice for a laid-back look, choose a cute cap for your weekend expeditions.
