One of my favorite things about summer is seeing women in fancy floppy hats – the bigger the better, IMO. While I have never had the confidence to don a large hat on the beach, I admire and marvel at the women who can pull off this glamorous look.
You, too, likely know (and envy) the type – the floppy sun hat woman in a beach chair, not on a mere towel. They’re in a one-piece swimsuit, a flowing cover up at the ready, stunning sunnies on their face, and the iconic floppy hat. I scout them immediately and think, “I want to be her when I grow up.”
But headwear fashion doesn’t stop at the chic floppy hat – far from it! There are so many different sun hat styles to choose from to keep you feeling and looking cool under the sun. Not only do they offer some protection from the hot rays (you still need to wear sunscreen though!), but who cares what state your hair is in – a hat has you covered.
