Want to beat the heat with panache? Step up your casual game in no time by throwing on a hat and a pair of sunnies! Read on for some celeb insights

*Ranveer Singh
Ranveer Singh has been spotted in hats time and again, which has us believing the actor carries unfading panache. The Lootera actor has always, without a hitch, managed to steal hearts and attention by donning distinct looks. This time was no different when he picked up a pair of aviators to suit the fedora; teamed along with casuals and a floral blazer. On taking a vote for this avatar, we hear all ‘yeses’!

*Varun Dhawan
Varun Dhawan is undoubtedly a very strong chick-magnet and after this avatar, there’s no denying. Sporting a pork pie hat, this Student Of The Year has very handsomely pulled off this guise with a pair of stunna-shades. His sense of la mode adds oodles of uber-cool quotient.

*Farhan Akhtar
While his wife is a superstar hairstylist, Farhan Akhtar is no less of a style icon himself. He took his leisure-wear to the next level with this pork pie hat and large-framed sunnies. The result: instantly dapper.

*Zayed Khan
Freshness to the eye is when we spot Zayed Khan after long, that too looking charming in a summery get-up. The actor looked hot-off-the-press in a soft pink shirt, matching with a panama hat in ivory white and some very vivid sunglasses. Panama hats and shades in softer and basic colours are a hit.

*Loy Mendonsa
Looks like Loy Mendonsa is growing younger by the year. This S-E-L member gives newbies a dip of heart while looking absolutely dashing in this leather trilby and blue-green mirror glares. We reckon the combo perfectly complements his swag and that beard.

Guide: The right sunnies for different face shapes
* Square shape ( like Enrique Iglesias): Rectangular shaped frames
* Round shape (like Elijah Wood): Large wayfarers
* Oblong shape (like Eminem): Aviators
* Diamond shape (like Dane Cook): Retro, rectangular styles in strong colours
* Oval shape (like Ben Affleck): Multiple styles in large frames.
Quick Tip: The stronger your features, the bigger the frames

Guide: Hats to suit your face structure
* Short, full/round (like Jack Black): Fedora, Gambler, Panama
* Long, thin (like Kiefer Sutherland): Fedora, Homburg, Derby
* Top, heavy (like Jon Favreau): Fedora, Homburg
* Square (like Orlando Bloom): Homburg, Bowler
* Oval (like Jude Law): Multiple hats/almost every style
Quick Tip: A brown or grey fedora complements every face shape, hair colour and complexion
