Top off your summer looks with headliners suited for any sunny day activity.

Hats provide much-needed shade for those hot sunny days and whilst they protect your face from harmful UV rays, they offer some serious style points too.

Whether you’re lounging by the pool or sightseeing in the city, there’s a style for you. Bucket hats have had a resurgence that can’t be argued with and have been seen on everyone from Rihanna to Bieber. We’ll be wearing ours with a tank top and slip skirt. Straw hats are a traditional and elegant option perfect for elevated beachside dressing and our favourite, the sports-luxe cap, is a trusted style perfect for adding a cool-girl edge to a more polished look.

Shop some of our favourite styles below.

Cool, comfortable and carefree, bucket hats have become a fashion girl staple.
