Shade With Style: 9 Hats You Need In Your Wardrobe

OK ladies, it’s time to talk about your heads. We all know the sun is damaging to our skin. We know about the importance of using sunscreen and the risks associated with skin cancers. (Which is why sunburn art truly never fails to baffle me). However, we all know we’re lacking in a major area when it comes to sun protection; hats. Hats are critical on sunny days. They protect your head from getting sunburnt, prevent sun stroke, and offer additional protection for your face from the sun’s harsh rays.

The typical excuse for not wearing a hat is “I’m not a hat person” or “I look weird in hats.” Now, I’m going to take the opportunity to silence these excuses.

Here are the best 8 summer hats (with the added bonus of all working great for your upcoming fall wardrobe as well). All are available for order from Forever 21 and Macy’s:

This is a super cute hat that offers max sun protection. The best part is it’s packable which is hard to find with floppy hats.

Hopefully you’ve seen something here that suits your style and if not, don’t stop searching! Sun protection is more crucial than ever and the resistance to hats needs to stop. Aside from being necessary to keep you safe, they cover bad hair days so what’s not to like?
