Melanique Babb luxury lifestyle blogger perfect hats for summer

We all know the importance of sun protection by now. Yes, you should apply (and reapply!) sunscreen every day but don’t underestimate the importance of a sun hat! In addition to a cute cover-up and trusty sunscreen, you might want to consider topping off your summer look with one of the best sun hats of the season! Not only will it complete your cute summer outfit, it will also help minimize sun exposure, possibly preventing age spots and other skin damage. A hat is not only a chic accessory but a way to keep the sun out of your eyes and off of your face.

I love opting for a wide-brimmed hat that covers not only your face, but your ears and neck as well. It’s important to cover up as much of your skin as possible if you are going to be spending time outdoors. I also suggest wearing long-sleeved shirts, pants and sunglasses with UV protection, but we’ll save the sunglasses for another blog post!

This season, I’m seeing so many different types of hats in a variety of silhouettes, shapes and textures. From straw, colorful crochets, to towel-soft terry cloths. If you’re traveling this season, you don’t have to worry about stuffing one into a suitcase and ruining it. There are plenty of soft cotton, canvas, or straw bucket hats that are packable or foldable that will certainly do the trick.

I’ve got you covered with the best sun hats for women this summer. Whether you’re on the hunt for a floppy straw hat for the beach, a trendy bucket silhouette for every day, a packable style with UPF 50+ for travel, or a sporty version for hiking, boating, or gardening, I’ve definitely got you covered girl!
