Fashion Friday: Stylish Summer Hats

It’s time to get shady. Now that we’ve hit the steamy summer months, it’s important to be mindful that sun exposure occurs all day long. Visible and ultraviolet (UV) light can penetrate even through clouds, on a rainy day, and through the glass windows of our homes and cars. But, you can limit sun exposure by wearing hats/gloves/sun-protective clothing and avoid direct exposure between the peak hours of 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

When it comes to choosing a stylish summer hat, pick one that will keep you cool, calm, and protected. Here are some of our favorite new styles that can complement a range of summer outfits — the maxi dress, beachwear, pool wear, swimsuits as well as fun summer activities — the  outdoor party, garden wedding, and walk in the park. These favorites, with their large brims, also serve a pedestrian need—UV protection!
