Hold on to Your Hat

The Perfect Summer Accessory

Prepping for a day in the sun? You know to pack SPF 30+ sunscreen, and you have your cute coverup ready to go. All that’s missing is a stylish summer hat! Sun hats add an extra barrier between you and harsh UV rays; wearing a hat when outdoors makes sure your scalp, ears, and nose are protected, which keeps your skin looking younger in the long-term. Of course, this functional covering is also the chic fashion accessory you’ll want to tote around all summer long. Here, local boutiques share their favorite sun hats of the season.

“Hats are a great way to protect your skin from the summer sun. This floppy raffia hat by tyler böe is fantastic because it can be worn with or without the ribbon to match your outfit for the day. And, as a bonus, this hat comes with both coral and navy ribbons!”

“With its large brim, this 100% straw hat from Raffaello Bettini provides plenty of sun protection. I love the feminine floral pattern that covers the hat, giving it a pop of color and flair. Pair this hat with a bathing suit, sundress, your favorite romper – the options are endless!”
