We all know we have Jacquemus to thank for the rise of the gargantuan beach hat. Now almost every high-profile label has thrown their own larger-than-life versions into the ring. But summer hats don’t have to be made of straw or the circumference of a crop circle to make our wishlist.
From bucket hats to fun fedoras to classic baseball caps, there are lots of hats on the market right now. As if that wasn’t enough, last summer’s must-have item, aka the visor, is still on the sartorial menu. We love a good neutral, especially the raffia variety. But we’re also craving patterns this season. Think tie-dye, florals, polka dots and more abstract offerings. Which means these toppers are guaranteed to elevate any outfit, even a basic T-shirt and cutoffs combo.
See the slideshow above for the best summer hats of the season. Warning: Some may require shelling out a bit of dough. Others are priced so low, you may want to buy several so you can have a hat for every mood or every day of the week.
