As pleasurable as it is to bask and bake in the sun, it’s also important to not take in too much. After all, too much exposure to the sun can result in sunburn, spots, and accelerated aging of your skin. Thus, a hat (and a good bottle of sunscreen) is essential during the Summer; plus, it’s also a fabulous fashion statement as well! Here are some eye-catching hats that’ll add flair -and sun protection-to your outfit.
Leather Baseball Caps

Although a baseball cap is often seen to be sporty and casual, one made out of leather can be quite sophisticated and chic. Pair this with a white blouse and flared shorts for boy-meets-girl look.

Wide-brimmed Hats

A wide-brimmed hat, be it made out of straw (as seen in the picture above) or felt, will keep the sun out of your eyes and also give you a mysterious feel. Pair this hat with a black maxi dress for a simple yet stylish look.

Though not admittedly the coolest type of headwear, it does make for a playfully chic fashion statement. Pair this hat with a loosely-fitted tank top and leather shorts for a tomboy look. Best worn during cooler days!
