Accessory Report: Hat Trends

LC Lauren Conrad sunhats

In my household we’re strong proponents of sun protection, especially with the new season rolling in. I don’t know about you, but I’ve learned my lesson after years of sunbathing on the beach. Since summertime was made for spending as much time as possible outside, I’ve upped my skin and hair protection in more ways than one. Sunscreen and cover-ups aside, I’m all about sunhats. There’s nothing like an oversized straw hat to shield you from harmful rays, and you can almost always find me wearing one at the beach. This year there are a handful of hat trends vying for my attention. I’ve got my sights set on everything from Panama hats to visors (yes, you read that correctly). Because when it comes to accessorizing this time of year, a girl needs options. Keep scrolling to see some of my favorite summer sunhat trends ready for a trip to the beach or a lazy weekend spent by the pool…

Panama Hats

You can find more than one Panama hat in my closet. They’re the perfect accessory for a weekend away and I always pack one no matter where I’m going.

Wide Brim Straw Hats

This has to be my favorite category. I love wide brim straw hats so much that I incorporated a handful of them into my summer LC Lauren Conrad collection. Find them here.

Fisherman Caps

Also known as engineer hats, fisherman caps are the ultimate cool girl hat. Plus you can wear this trend well into the chillier months, making it an evergreen staple.

Boater Hats

Similar to wide brim straw hats, boater hats have a stiff brim and usually have chic ribbon detail. These beauties were made for a summer picnic or brunch in the sunshine.

Last but not least, visors are making a comeback into the summer sunhat scene. I was skeptical, but these trendy options changed my mind…
