One of the easiest ways to protect your head and face against sunburn and sun damage is with a hat.  We can’t count how many times we have put on sunscreen to go to the zoo or the park with our kids and realized later that we unfortunately got sunburned on our scalp and ears. Even our cheeks and nose still got red — we should have reapplied the sunscreen but forgot.

Thankfully it really has become more fashionable to wear hats again.  And there are so many choices!  What you want to look for are hats with a tight weave (that’s what gives you the SPF from the hat) and broad brim (that gives you shade over your ears, neck, and face).  For example, baseball hats will cover your head and give you some forehead and nose coverage but not much else because of the limited brim.

Sun Hat
Modcloth’s Second to Sun Hat ($34.99)

We love the stripes and rainbow-hued band for a great combo of chic and sophisticated hipster.  The brim definitely gives your face and neck some shade.

outdoors hat
Modcloth’s The Date Outdoors Hat ($23.99)

This is a a woven, bow-topped look with lovely red and white stripes — a more floppy, casual look.

day hat
Modcloth’s Oh Classy Day Hat in Goldenrod ($19.99)

Such a unique color that is a great accent piece — this felt hat will give you the tight weave you need to protect your head and ears from the sun.  And the brim is wide enough to give your face and neck additional shade-SPF as well.

sunshine hat
Modcloth’s Style My Sunshine Hat in Black ($34.99)

This hat looks formal, but to be honest you can also wear it with jeans.  Mix and match, dress up and down — all in the same ensemble.  It’s okay.  As you can see from the photo, the black goes perfectly with the lighter top.  It also gives you superb coverage with the wide brim.

day hat in scarlet
Modcloth’s Oh Classy Day Hat in Scarlet ($19.99)

Red is one of our favorite accent colors, and this sun protection hat is such a cute find.  Made of felt, it gives you tight-weave coverage against the sun.

day hat in tan
Modcloth’s Oh Classy Day Hat in Tan ($19.99)

A great value, this is also a felt hat with a sturdy brim.  What we like about this color is that it has a bit more of a stylish-and-fun Indiana Jones look to it.

morning hat
Modcloth’s Topper the Morning Hat in Navy ($19.99)

This looks like the other felt hats we’ve featured, but actually this hat is made from polyester.  Polyester is a much better fabric for wicking away moisture than cotton (cotton just absorbs it and then it can take a while for it to dry out).  For many of us that don’t look all that great in black, navy is a great alternative.  The brim will give you some coverage, just make sure you wear your sunscreen too!

(Hint: find out which sunscreens aren’t toxic in our previous post.)

daylight hat
Modcloth’s Day to Daylight Hat ($32.99)

One of our most favorite stylish hats of this roundup because of the neutral color that goes with anything and the wide brim for sun protection.

derby days hat
Modcloth’s Derby Days Hat ($16.99)

And to round out our sun protective hats we’ve got two vintage inspired ones — this one has a Derby feel that’s a little more formal.

hat in white
Modcloth’s Pure Edith Hat in White ($44.99)

This is an asymmetrical, roaring 1920s inspired hat.  More for the fashion event.  But it certainly gives you extra coverage along your neck — choose a dinner chair with your back to the sunset and you’re set!  Make sure you wear sunscreen on your face and neck, as there is little coverage there.
