Just One Thing: Sun Hats

Just One Thing: Sun Hats

Summer is here at long last! Sun protection should be a priority all year long, but even more so during warmer months. Of course we know you would never be so careless as to go outside without sunscreen. However, a hat is necessary to truly protect and conceal your precious visage. Better yet, a hat is one of the easiest ways to throw some shade (pun intended) in a chic, ladylike way: both in function and style. Style icons of past and present have all turned to the sun hat as their staple summer go-to. Here are a few of our favorites:

Want to look like a Parisian goddess next time you hit the beach? Look no further than the Eugenia Kim Wide-Brim Striped Woven Straw Sunhat ($415). The pop of red on the brim of this hat is perfection… plain and simple.

The J. Crew Panama Hat ($58) has been a wardrobe staple for years, and for good reason at that. Get your man on board like Diane Kruger and sport matching fedoras together. You’ll look committed to each other AND sun-protection. Totes adorbs.

Things can get a bit messy if your hat doesn’t have the proper ventilation. Topshop Crochet Floppy Hat ($40) is light and airy but still shields you from harmful rays.

If you’re looking to mix things up, swap your normal sunhat for the Hat Attack Raffia Cap ($50). It’s sporty, yet much more fashion-forward than borrowing an old baseball cap from your brother.

Black and natural straw are the more versatile colors for a hat. Can’t decide between the two? Try Eric Javits Two-Tone Fedora ($138).
