Flopp Hat With Scarf

The tied band detail sets this lovely hat apart. Available in black, lilac or pink, the adjustable scarf band ties up in the back for a more casual look. This hat also has a UPF 50+ rating for sun protection.

Open-Weave Straw Hat

This straw Panama hat is a bit more understated, but we love the look for chic summer vibes. It has an open-weave pattern with a flat crown, allowing for extra breathability. This one is not foldable, however, so you should add it to your plane outfit.

Buy It: Urban Outfitters, $39.00

Striped Bucket Hat

This 100-percent cotton sun hat is easily foldable (and packable!), making it an excellent choice for summer getaways. It's available in both a neutral stripe and a blue-and-white striped version. It's casual enough to wear at the pool or beach, but you will also throw it on for afternoon errands.

Buy It: Anthropologie, $58.00

Frayed Denim Hat

This cotton denim-inspired bucket hat is another adorable summer must-have. It features a frayed-edge detail, and the fabric makes it a breeze to throw it into any beach bag, weekend duffel or handbag. Fold up the brim for a more low-key look, or keep it extra floppy for maximum sun protection.

Buy It: Anthropologie, $38.00

Sandy Trimmed Rancher

This simple, straw sun hat has a beautiful ribbon trim and a perfectly-sized brim. The extra splash of color is an ode to that vibrant summer color palette we all love.

Straw Boater Hat

This vintage-inspired hat will help you make a true summer style statement. Choose from black or tan; both feature a lovely grosgrain ribbon detail. You'll look right at home on a weekend boat ride or at a pool party.

Oversized Floppy Hat

Yes, you might need to clear the sidewalk to walk down the street in this giant floppy hat, but it's worth it. With a neutral color-block palette of tan and black and an extra-large brim, this hat is perfect for a Kentucky Derby party or a lounge day at the pool.

Buy It: Target, $19.99

Pom-Pom Hat

Available in a multicolor or plain black option, you can choose the color palette that works best for you. The wide straw brim will protect you from the sun at the beach, but it's stylish enough to wear just about anywhere.

Black Panama Hat

This hat is an excellent choice for anyone who digs a more structured look. Made from a cotton and polyester combo, this hat rocks a nubby, textured weave and a flat brim. The faux leather accent strap is also a nice touch.
