The Chicest Designer Summer Hats to Wear This Season

Stylish summer hats are perennial staples for vacation alongside resort wear essentials like bikinis, sarongs, and sandals. But a hat is the ultimate piece to anchor every summer outfit, whether it’s for a beach day, yacht excursion, first-class tour, or beyond. There are timeless women’s sun hats like fedoras, Panama hats, floppy, wide-brim silhouettes, and charming boaters, all of which make for quintessential holiday looks that are photogenic for Instagram, of course. Then, there are trendy summer hats for women. This season, these range from throwback buckets à la the ’90s and Aughts; supersized straw hats that span nearly an arms-length; and the humble baseball cap, which has risen the ranks of ladies’ summer hats and become a must-have topper for casual-cool style. To wit, we’ve plucked perfect pieces to pair with each trend, including logo-clad swimwear, gleaming jewels, stylish sarongs, and elegant sandals.
