Our 12 Favorite Sunsational Sun Hats To Hit The Beach In


One of my best summer buys: a wide brim beach hat to keep the sun out of my eyes, while also remaining chic. It was simple: a black straw hat with a wide brim, keeping me cool while I served looks from underneath. It’s an item I think everybody should own, and this summer, it’s time to stand out. Promise: these hats will help you slay your beach game.

I really love the fedora style to this beach hat. The braided trim in pastel hues adds a subtle trendy statement and the western flare makes it more unique than most beach hats.
