Chic Summer Hats

chic summer hats

If you know me, you know I love to wear hats year round. A chic hat is a great accessory. I like to wear a hat to save time styling my hair, especially on bad hair days. I also appreciate the added sun protection a hat provides.

I hear a lot of people say “but I don’t look good in hats, so I’m not a hat person.” The secret to loving, and looking great in a hat is finding the right shape for your face.

A few of my favorite hat stores include Goorin Bros. for quality handmade hats. Asos carries a good selection of affordable and fashionable hats. I also love the new Draper James hat collection.

Here are a few of my favorite chic summer hats that I own, and a few on my wish list listed below:

1.    Sensi Studio Lady Ibiza Toquilla Straw Floppy ($235) – I love the pom poms on this hat. This one is on my wish list. I think it is perfect to wear while relaxing at the pool or on the beach. (
