As far as summer accessories go, there’s nothing more glamorous than a big straw hat. In fact, we’ll take a topper of any variety to finish off our warm weather outfits: visors, ranchers, fedoras, baseball caps, you name it. (Plus, we’re definitely not mad about that extra sun protection for our delicate faces). Here, we rounded up the best summer hats for women to start snapping up now, before the beaches reopen.

1. lack Of Color The Spencer Wide Brimmed Boater
Let’s start with a classic: the straw boater. This beauty will look good paired with anything, from your bathing suit to jeans and heels.
2. eric Javits 'hampton' Straw Sun Hat
This glamorous hat is giving us major Meredith Blake vibes (in the best way possible). But if black isn’t really your summer vibe this Eric Javits style comes in nine other shades, from delicate lilac to denim blue and four variations of beige.
3. l.l.bean Packable Cotton Bucket Hat
If you’re going to wear a ‘90s throwback, why not go all the way, with a madras patchwork pattern? Keep the rest of your outfit simple (like a crisp white sundress or jeans and a Breton stripe top) to ensure you don’t look like you just stepped off the set of All That.
4. stutterheim Waterproof Bucket Hat
If you’re really loving the bucket hat resurgence, we suggest picking up on in a waterproof fabric for those unexpected summer thunderstorms.
5. Lulus Take Me Away Beige Oversized Floppy Straw Hat
Wide-brim straw hats are a beach must-have for two reasons: sun protection and adding a bit of glam. This extra-wide silhouette ups the ante on both and has us thinking about the oversize Eric Javits topper that Ariana Grande wore on the August 2019 cover of Vogue.
6. asos Design Straw Visor
Most straw visors come with a Velcro closure in the back. But fine hair has a tendency to get caught in all those hooks and eyes, which is why we were glad to find this chic alternative, finished with an adjustable grosgrain ribbon.
