Sun hats are one of our favorite summer accessories because they’re always on double duty. The toppers not only put the finishing touch on any outfit (including your swimsuit and cover up!), but they also add that extra layer of protection between you and the sun. So, with summer finally here, we’ve rounded up our absolute favorite beach-ready hats that you can buy right now. From bold colored to big brimmed, help yourself by making a healthy investment in a rad hat. What are you waiting for? You’ll be able to stay out of the sun and stay on the beach with any one of these 15 options.
