Messy hair? Wear a hat. Bored with your go-to uniform? Add a hat. Not in the mood to apply makeup? A hat (plus your face mask) will keep you incognito. Fashion hacks aside—a good hat not only protects your skin from damaging rays (yes, even when the sun’s not beaming), the timeless accessory can quickly make your outfit look way chicer and appear as though you tried harder than you did in the wardrobe department. Convenience and sartorial points—yeah, we’re in.
We tested out a selection of designs and outfits to get your hat inspiration rolling and to show you a peek inside the Poosh team’s personal style. From a variety of straw versions to wide-brim options (a style that’s typically universally flattering), see and shop the versatile choices that made our edit no matter the season.
