There’s a time and place for hidden storage. But when it comes to cute sun hats, we say: Keep them where the people can see them. Whether layered on a Shaker peg rail, hung on the wall as art, or wedged into a toppling tower, there’s something about a bountiful hat moment that brings a sense of warmth to interiors. It says “I vacation on the Côte d’Azur and frequent the local farmers’ market.” 

Of course, hats shouldn’t just be for show—you’re going to want to wear them, too. There’s no shortage of cute options out there, so it just comes down to knowing what you want. Does it need to be washable and packable, have a tie, or be absolutely massive? Our guide has you covered on all fronts, even down to hanging mechanisms. And while you’re being responsible and protecting your skin, you should probably peruse our sunscreen guide.

Au Naturel

We strongly feel that Nancy Meyers, Ina Garten, and Oprah Winfrey would all approve of these neutral sun hats. Perfect for gardening, going on a light walk, or doing absolutely nothing at all, they’ll instantly catapult you to coastal grandma status.

Sometimes you just need to throw on a cute baseball hat and run errands. The pedestrian style can often end up taking away from your outfit, but not these. Our favorite is Kule’s with its embroidered tennis racket, but the mermaid is a close second.
