Hats have always been an essential part of any beach or pool trip and recently have been extremely popular right now.  Any hat ranging from baseball hats to trucker hats, cowboy hats, bucket hats, sun hats, and more have become the talk of the summer and there are hundreds of new and cool brands to shop from. Personally, I love hats because they make any outfit look that much more put together and accessorized. 


Trucker Hats

Aviator Nation has become the prime place to buy trucker hats. With bright colors and cool designs, they are unique and perfect to pair with a bikini. Another popular brand is  Madhappy. MadHappy has trucker hats that are a lot more simple and sleek. They have neutral colors with very simple writing that can match with anything.

Bucket & Sun Hats

 The brand Lack of Color has the cutest bucket and sun hats. They tend to be pricey, but are worth all the hype. Their bucket hats are wide-brimmed and perfect to protect your face from the sun on a hot day. Along with giving you the ultimate protection, they come in the prettiest patterns and fabrics ranging from floral to felt and will definitely help spice up your summer outfit.

Baseball Hats

Baseball hats will never go out of style and are typically bigger trucker hats. My favorite baseball hats are the vintage baseball hats that your dad used to wear. The old sports teams or used Life is Good baseball hats are essential to my summers. They are always worn in the perfect amount and give off the vintage feeling we all crave. They are the simplest way to look cute while also being able to cover up a bad hair day- it is a win-win.


Whichever type of hat fits your style best, will make your summer that much better. Testing out the other styles too will give you so much versatility to wear a wide range of outfits.
