We’re now firmly within the bounds of beach season, people. You already know this and you’ve most likely already done your research and copped some good swimwear and maybe even a pair of beach kicks. For some reason, though, when it comes to hats for the beach, we just resign ourselves to wearing that old, battered cap from yesteryear. To really upgrade your beach flex, put some more thought into your beach hats this year.
Beach hats come in many different forms. Obviously, the baseball cap is a favorite because of its no-nonsense approach and versatility. But for those looking for better protection, we’ve rounded up a range of wider-brimmed bucket hats below, too.
With the help of Saks Fifth Avenue, we’ve put together selections from Acne Studios, Casablanca, and Marni alongside classics like Polo Ralph Lauren and Y-3. You won’t be short on options for beach hats this summer. So keep scrolling and round out your seaside look properly.
