When the sun is shining, sometimes you need more than just a pair of sunglasses to keep the sun off your face. In this case, a sunhat or cap is the perfect alternative. They can provide shade and protection for your face, and depending on the style, the back of your neck a well. Summer hats are an essential in every ladies wardrobe. From stylish sunhats with wide brims and chic details to technical ball caps and trucker hats, here are our top women’s summer hats.
Top Women’s Urban Summer Hats
Herschel Supply Co. Gambier Straw Hat
Seek shade from the Gambier Straw hat at the beach, in the park or while reading your favourite book by the pool. The wide brim provides shade for your face and your neck so you can maintain a healthy glow and avoid a lobster, red glow. The multi-coloured woven brim underlay adds a little colour and fun to the simple hate which tops off any chic, summer outfit.
O’Neill Vista Panama Hat
Lightweight and style go hand-in-hand in the Vista Panama Hat. It is made from 100% paper straw making it lightweight enough for those scorching, hot summer days. A black band around the base adds a subtle stylish flare. Pair it with a sundress or your favourite tankini and enjoy the summer sun.
Brixton Dalila Hat
Top off your summer ensemble with the stylish Dalila hat. Made of 100% Wool felt, this hat may be slightly warmer than the above straw hats but still a favourite. Pair it with an elegant summer dress for lunch on the terrace or a late night summer cocktail with friends.
Woolrich Bangkok Toyo Safari
Dress it up with a sophisticated maxi dress or wear it casual with a tank and some shorts, the Bangkok Toyo Safari is versatile. A braided faux-leather trim adds a fashionable touch to this simple hat. If you’re looking for a brimmed summer hat but aren’t a fan of the oversized-floppy brims, this is a great choice.
Outdoor Research Isla Hat
Finding room in your suitcase for a sunhat can be bleak but not with the Isla hat. This fashionable summer hat can be rolled up and tied making it convenient for frequent travelers. Keep your face shaded as you soak up some sun on the boat deck as you sail through turquoise, Caribbean waters.
Columbia Sun Ridge™ II Hat
Stay cool and classy on the veranda in the Sun Ridge™ II hat. The built-in sweatband wicks away moisture keeping you feeling fresh. Omni-Shade™ UPF 30 sun protection keeps you protected from the harmful sun rays so you can sit back, relax and enjoy the sangria.
Coal The Richmond SE Cap
For the hip ladies who aren’t fans of wide brims and straw, a simple five panel is your style. The Richmond SE cap is made of cotton with a lightweight mesh lining. Pair it with your favourite sunglasses and you’re ready for a game of volleyball or lying on the beach, watching the waves roll in.
Herschel Supply Co. Sylas Cap
With the recent ball cap trend, this list wouldn’t be complete with at least one. The Sylas cap is simple yet stylish with its fine details such as the custom HSCO embroidered flag emblem on the front. Made from 100% washed slub cotton, you’ll be cool and sleek shaded from the sun in the Sylas cap.
