LoveHats.com Has Royal Wedding Worthy Hats You Can Virtually Try On

Between Kate Middleton's ladylike fascinators and Lady Gaga's showstopping headpieces, hats are having a major moment in fashion. To meet this sudden demand for over-the-top head wear, Andrew Curren—the co-founder of My-wardrobe.com—has launched a new hat-centric e-tailer, Lovehats.com.

Since the website is based in London, home to some of the world's best milliners, its selection far surpasses a Lids store at the local mall; we spotted everything from Philip Treacy creations (favored by the British royals) to jaunty Selima fedoras. The entire stock is also available to "try on" virtually by uploading a headshot. When satisfied with your digital accessorizing, you can share the final image with your friends before purchasing.

To help you try this trend, we found hats for five summer occasions. Click through the slideshow to shop them now and then visit Lovehats.com for even more stylish toppers.

For Golfing

Or a polo match, day at the racetrack or stroll through the scenic countryside. If the occasion is vaguely preppy and sporty, this newsboy cap will probably work.

Chilling Out

But not at home. Somewhere really cool downtown where people can see you. This one is good for a day of vintage shopping, too.

Garden Party/British Wedding

Avant garde hats are standard fare at United Kingdom nuptials. Stateside, the look is better suited to a flower-filled luncheon.

Walking Down the Aisle

Consider trading a traditional veil for this dramatic headpiece—it makes a statement in a soft, feminine way.

Lounging Poolside

Just what you'd want for a caftan wearing day full of fruity umbrella drinks and trashy paperbacks.
