Mention “summer accessories” and what usually spring to mind are your go-to sunglasses and statement sandals. Compared to the rest of the accessory clique, we don’t tend to give hats nearly as much attention. For many, they come across as a last resort to tame your mane on a bad hair day, or as mandatory apparel at garden parties. But in fact, wearing hats is an effortless way to cap off your summer look, and more importantly, to shield your face from the bright rays.

From beachy straw hats to elegant wide brims, we’ve rounded up a list of stylish headwear that will add some much-needed drama to your summer wardrobe.
