You stocked up on sunscreen, checked the UV forecast, and picked a set of flattering shades. But, there’s still one thing missing from your beach day’s sun-protection checklist: the perfect hat. Toppers offer a simple — and stylish — way to give your face a much-needed extra shield from blistering rays (not to mention, they let you get away with another no-shampoo day).
If your cap collection is lacking, don’t fret. We have 14 ways to help you fill the gap. We found tons of visors, bucket hats, baseball caps, and wide-brim boaters to keep you shaded all day long, even when you’re at the shore. A breezy, summer look that’s as functional as it is fashionable? Hats off to that.
