When Gigi Hadid talks, we listen. So as you can imagine, my ears perked up during my recent conversation with the style icon about the new trends that she is signing off on.

Of all the items she mentioned, she was notably most excited about a special one that I haven't heard much buzz about yet—the shrunken bucket hat. She told me she thinks the trend is so good that she's tossing her standard bucket hats for this style. "The bucket hats that I'm keeping are the ones that are a little bit out-there … like a beanie."

In general, summer hats are at the top of her wish list, and for good reason. The right one can really make or break a look. So lo and behold, you'll find an extensive collection of summer hats that I believe are well worth the storage space they take up. Whether you're wearing a bikini and cover-up or are feeling like a summer dress is more your beat, you can't go wrong by topping it off with this accessory.

Sierra Mayhew was always destined to work in fashion, but she didn't know it at first. Growing up with no choice but to wear a rotation of school uniforms and activewear, her love for fashion really blossomed when she moved away for college and was able to finally define her very own personal style. Shortly thereafter, she interned at Elle magazine and instantly knew that editorial was for her. After graduating from the University of Notre Dame, she worked for ShopBazaar, contributing regularly to, and finally made her way to Who What Wear, where she is an associate editor. When she’s not working, you can catch her always trying to catch a flight, rollerblading through New York City traffic, or exploring the latest luxury vintage boutique.
