If you are like me and burn super easily, it is important to keep sunscreen on and stay hydrated! There are so many different ways to protect yourself from the sun, but an easy stylish way is by wearing a cute beach hat. Beach hats match bathing suits perfectly and will make you look super stylish as you are lounging in the sun! Here are 10 beach hats that will keep you super protected and looking cute!
#1 Boat Hat
The boat hat is a super stylish hat and makes a really cute look for the beach! You can find it in a dark brown color or other shades of brown. It does feature a stiff brim, so there will be no way for the sun to reach your face when you are wearing this hat! Many come with removable leather bands, so you can decide whether you like it with or without. It is very versatile and can even be worn in the fall months as well! It is a staple piece for any closet and will make you look stunning as you are laying on the beach. It comes in many different sizes so it will for sure fit your head!
#2 Panama Hat
The Panama hat is so cute and it is a very classic style. It features a stiff brim so you will not have to worry about it not covering your whole face. You can find this hat in so many different shades of brown or even a color like pink! It is an easy addition to any bathing suit. It also is perfect for going out to an evening dinner or for a sunset walk on the beach. You will definitely wear the Panama style hat all throughout your vacation!
#3 Straw Hat
The straw hat style is super cute and will definitely turn heads during your next getaway. Although this style is cute, it can be difficult to find one that is super protective. They range in the way they protect from barely any to a lot. This type of hat is definitely the most common and you have probably seen it on models or other beachgoers! It is a style that has been trendy for many years now.
#4 Cute Sayings
This trend is one of my favorites for beach hats and will definitely add a touch of cuteness to your overall look. These hats I have seen all over Instagram and VSCO. They are a straw style hat with phrases sewn onto the brim! Some phrases include; good vibes, beach please, hello sunshine, and even custom ones! This look is very protective and will keep your face from burning!
#5 Lifeguard Hat
This is one of my go tos when I am going to the beach and it is very popular if you are trying to achieve the surfer girl vibe. Companies like Billabong make these lifeguard hats, so you know they are for sure going to be stylish and protective. They feature a very sturdy brim with cool patterns that go underneath the brim. It adds a beachy vibe to the hat! It also comes with a string that adjusts, so you can cinch it to your chin.
#6 Baseball Cap
This is a complete classic for most everyone! If you are going to the beach you are definitely going to throw in your baseball cap. This is such an easy way to sport your favorite sports team, school, or anything at all! A baseball cap protects your face from the sun since it features a brim that reflects a shadow over your face! Baseball caps come in all different colors and some even have the adjustable strap on the back to form perfectly to your head.
#7 Bucket Hat
The bucket hat has been seen on many runways surprisingly! Stores like Urban Outfitters are starting to carry these in their store. They are an easy accessory that is keeping up with the latest trends of 2020. It is somewhat of a throwback style! They come in different patterns and every color, so it will for sure match your suit. A lot of celebrities and other people wear this with their clothes as well. It is super protective, so if you are heading out to shop or going for a walk throw this on!
#8 Large Brim
You have probably seen the pictures that were taken by many fashion magazines of the overly large beach hats! This is a very trendy look for this summer and it is extremely protective. The hat features a very large brim that makes a floppy look throughout the brim. You can find these with ribbons or bands around the base of the hat! Some large brim hats even come with stripes and other patterns! I prefer to rock it plain since it will match with everything and always will stay a classic piece.
#9 Straw Visor
This look definitely throws me back and it still looks super classy. A lot of people rock a low bun or leave their hair down when they rock this style. This look is super cute for summer days and will make the best Instagram post! It is very protective when it comes to the face, but it will not protect your scalp from getting burned. It features an elastic back, so it will form to the perfect size for your head!
#10 Rough Edge
Like the basic straw hat, the rough edge beach hat is an edgy way to up your basic hat game. The distressed look has been super in during the 2020 season so far. This look can have a band or no band around the base and feature a distressed look throughout the entire edge of the brim. It will definitely make you stand out during your beach day! It is super protective, so you do not have to worry about getting a burn when you are wearing this beach hat!
