A smart-casual dress code means don't go in the clothes you'd clean a toilet or paint a house in. Clean pants/jeans/kilt/whatever, trainers, t-shirt/shirt/jumper. Jacket, if you want, but not necessary. When I was at sixth-form, some of us went in on Wednesdays wearing suits - Formal Wednesday. Just our little gimmick.
When I'm at college, I wear daqrk trousers and shoes, a coloured shirt/t-shirt, a tweed-style jacket (I've a couple of brown ones - including a real Harris - and a grey one), and sometimes either my trilby or my panama. But I'm twenty-one and at a college with other adults, so I don't know how something like that'd go down for someone your age.
That picture doesn't show a trilby; trilbies are made from wool (or felt) and have significantly wider brims*. The hat in the picture looks more like a cross between a trilby and a panama, made from linen.
A man never wears a hat indoors. So if you're a bloke, you take it off when you enter a building. Shops, entrances, and lobbies, of course, are possibly exceptions, depending on the type (I'll wear a hat in a supermarket, but not a cafe or corner shop, and definitely not in a library), and it doesn't matter when you're in a car.
*This is a real trilby, whatever 'fashionable' people tell you:
If you want to get a real one, be prepared to pay; I paid out £35 for mine, same as for my deerstalker. The panama I'm wearing in my avatar cost me £50. Proper hats can be a very expensive business, even if you buy low-end like I do.

Anyone wearing a hat indoors looks stupid
