Spring is coming, y’all, and whether you’re shopping for spring break or simply counting down the days til warmer weather, now is the time to get your sun hat collection in order. It may come as a surprise, but in a few weeks, you can swap that wool beanie and freezing temps for a floppy straw hat and some warm weather! Of course, more sunshine just around the corner means you should be taking extra precautions against those harmful UV rays. (Seriously, you can never slather on too much SPF!) And for even more protection from the sun, I highly recommend topping off your summer and spring outfits with a fun hat.
Not only are sun hats a great excuse to add a little pizzazz to your warm-weather ensembles, but these wide-brimmed accessories also drop a little shade on your face—protecting both your skin and your eyes. We love a double-win! And while the skin-saving benefits these caps, fedoras, and straw hats provide are top-notch, you can't dismiss the fact that they are also just extremely cute. Nothing screams vacation like throwing on a white dress and straw hat before you hit the beach, am I right?
