Every woman should incorporate a few chic summer hats into her warm weather wardrobe. Providing fashion and function, a well-made summer hat serves many purposes for any woman, namely protecting her face from the direct rays of the sun. According to the CDC, “For the most protection, wear a hat with a brim all the way around that shades your face, ears, and the back of your neck.” While the best hats for providing sun protection are made of cloth, if you are in the sun for an extended period of time in a straw hat, make sure it has a tightly woven weave.
Nowadays all kinds of unique hats exist, ranging from the packable cloth styles that are ideal for travel, to smart straw hats that are suitable for outdoor weddings, or a stroll through your favorite city. A stylish collection of women’s hats that will aid in protecting your skin and tresses, from the damaging rays of the sun are provided here.
