Laura Whitmore shows us how to wear this season's hottest hat

Shoes and handbags better watch their backs – there’s a new accessory in town and it’s making waves as THE hottest style of the season!

OK, so it’s actually not that new (it’s one of the oldest accessories out there) but it seems hats are having a bit of a fashion moment for autumn 2014, having been spotted on the runways at Dolce & Gabbana, Lanvin and Moschino.

What’s more, they’re topping the heads of some of fash-lands most stylish celebs – just take all-round cool gal Laura Whitmore, who was spotted out wearing a beyond bargainous hat from online emporium Yours for just £9.99 AND it comes in a range of colours including blue, yellow, pink, green and grey. Decisions, decisions.

If Laura’s bowler style isn’t your hat (errr, we mean bag) then fear not – there’s a plethora of other options available on our great British high street.

Marks & Spencer‘s tweed style is a dead ringer for the styles worn by Kate Moss, Topshop’s felt fedora will be perfect to team with camel shades, Zara‘s beanie will nail fash-blogger style, and Oasis‘ furry friend will keep you cosy and champion autumn’s From Russia With Love trend in the process. Just don’t team it with a red jacket or you’ll be mistaken for one of the Queen’s guards. Atten’shun!

But it’s not just ‘cause they’re on trend that we love these super cool hats. No, no, no. These must-have hats will expertly style out bad hair days, and effortlessly take your summer wardrobe into autumn territory, too. Now that’s what we call a fashion hat-trick (sorry).

Check out our fave styles below, they’re practically begging to be added to your wardrobe. Go on. You’ve worked REALLY hard this week!
