Until recently, I've never been much of a hat person. But since I moved to LA, I've found myself constantly blinded by the bright sunshine, and I realized just how essential hats really are. Luckily, the best hats to keep you cool on the hottest of days also happen to be some of the cutest.
At first, the idea of adding more fabric to your head to keep it feeling cooler might sound kind of odd. Don't we wear hats in the winter to keep heat from escaping and making us colder? Well, sure. But there's way more to hats than thick, knit caps. Many summer hats promote airflow and even wick away moisture so your head won't feel sweaty. Hats with wide brims give you instant shade, which is sure to help you feel cooler than direct exposure to the sun. And, best of all, a lot of these hats are made from sun protective fabric that'll prevent your face and neck from burning.
If you're having a hard time with the summer heat or just want an accessory that's as practical as it is cute, a cooling sun hat is a great way to stay comfortable and protected when you're out in the sun.
