• Have fun: Ex­per­i­ment with ca­sual styles be­fore choos­ing one for a wed­ding or spe­cial event. A sum­mer ca­sual hat can be found for be­tween $25 and $50. It will pro­tect your skin and make an or­di­nary out­fit look spec­tac­u­lar.

• Wed­dings/spe­cial oc­ca­sions: Choose one you fall in love with. Try a va­ri­ety of styles and work­man­ship but al­low a bud­get of about $300. if the hat suits you, you'll want to wear it again.

• Fall/win­ter se­lec­tions: For great win­ter style, buy from a milliner (in per­son or on­line) or shop at the "One of a Kind Show," held an­nu­ally in Toronto.
