If a vacation or extended time outdoors is in your future this summer, sun protection is paramount. While sunscreen is a must, another stylish and effective way to shield yourself from UV rays is donning a sun hat. We spoke with stylists from around the country, a dermatologist and a travel expert to find the most attractive and comfortable hats, and easily packable options you’ll want to add to your wardrobe this season.
For a luxury hat that will pair well with your most stylish swimwear, Carne suggests the designer Eugenia Kim. The contemporary brand offers “hats for all the seasons,” she says, including summery styles with high UPF ratings. The Mirabel sun hat is woven from natural straw, and offers a neutral yet eye-catching look, thanks to its ombre design. Looking for a pop of color? Consider the Mirabel sun hat in pink, which nails the Barbiecore trend, since it comes with a bright pink ombre organza bow.
