While I love hats in the fall and winter (beanies and furry bucket hats, this one's for you), there's something about summertime hats that can just be a tad bit more exciting. Not to mention, there are much more options. The bright colors and fun prints start to trickle in. Plus, oversize and dramatic silhouettes take center stage in any vacation Instagram shot. It's a win-win situation: You get optimal protection from the sun and look good while doing it. What's not to love about that? However, the vast options on the market can be a little overwhelming, which is why I rounded up my favorites in all price points for you to choose from.
These hats are perfect for hiding a bad hair day, adding a little touch of flair to your beach outfit, or simply just protecting you from the sun. In the mix below, there are plenty of different colors, patterns, and textures so that you don't feel restricted.
