I’m actually not much of a hat girl (truthfully, it’s because I prefer voluminous hair to hat head), but even I make an exception when it comes to summer versions of the often polarizing accessory. Sure, they’re not necessarily office appropriate, but for your extracurricular activities (whether they involve a vacation, a beach day, or a simple stroll around town), the addition of a lightweight (and thus hair-friendly) summer hat has benefits beyond just making you look cool (which I must admit it does). It also gives your face and skin some well-deserved refuge from the sun’s harsh rays—the consideration of which would definitely make your mother proud, if she’s anything like mine.
Have I convinced you yet? If so, shop my hat picks below, and if not, take a look anyway—they might change your mind!
We're guessing this is half the reason you clicked into this story? Can't blame ya.

Nicole here! Since starting as an intern back in 2013, I’ve held several roles here at Who What Wear, most recently being Editor-at-Large. It was a less expected route, seeing as I was graduating from business school at USC when this all began. I’ve since moved to NYC from my hometown of Beverly Hills and spend my work days a little differently from when I was an intern starting out. Currently, I focus on trends and shopping content. As far as my personal style goes, I’m largely drawn to classic pieces and neutral basics but will always make an exception for something colorful, printed, or bejeweled as long as it’s deemed worthy enough. After all, the only thing I love more than a good party is dressing up for one.
