Updated on August 22, 2014

Top 5 Styles in Summer Hats

What's the must-have women's fashion accessory when you're going away to a warm climate or want protection from the sun? A hat, of course! Stylish sunhats for women are the practical and perfect choice. These summer fashion accessories for women not only offer great sun protection but look fabulously chic as well! From big floppy sunhats and women's cowboy hats to women's caps and women's fedora hats, you'll be amazed at the pretty women's hats that are now available online. Featured are the Top 5 Styles in the hottest sun hats for women. Which one will you wear?

Top 5 Styles in Women's Sun Hats - Your Must-Have Beach Accessory

This Year's Top 5 Styles:

1. The Fedora Sun Hat: Continuing the trend from last fall, fedoras are urban and chic. For the warmer months, a women's fedora sun hat looks modern and new in crisp straw or denim. As these cool looking hats are attention getters, they look best in solid colors or soft patterns. Wear with a crisp white button-up blouse or tee and jeans.

2. Women's Caps: Old-fashion golf or driving caps have small brims and are sleek. Nautical or military looks are a big trend in fashion for the season and look especially stylish with this type of cap in camouflage or Americana red, white or blue canvas. Wear one with a tee and sailor or cropped pants.

3. Oversized Straw Sun Hats: Forever the perfect beach hat, nothing says summer like a straw hat. If you're an attention grabber, then opt for the big floppy brim versions in natural straw, white, bright or sorbet shades. The tame sun lovers can opt for cute rolled brim versions in natural. Wear your straw sun hat with a swimsuit and sarong.

4. The Crusher Sun Hat: This is a broad term for packable hats that can be crushed and not lose their shape and are great for travel. These are probably the most popular hats to date and come in a myriad of colors, prints and shapes. Give a try to a fun plaid, polka dot, Hawaiian floral or stripe version. Wear this sun hat with anything casual.

5. The Cowboy Hat: An easy and fun women's hat to wear, the newest versions of women's western cowboy hats can be found in straw in neutral colors such as white and beige or fruity hues including raspberry, melon, lime and sky blue. Wear with a pretty printed dress or jeans.

Runner-Up: The Visor: These kitsch hats are back in fashion, particularly with the teen set, and look great for summer. Give a whirl to a visor in terry cloth baby blue or pink while taking a stroll or at the beach. Perfect for golfing, wear a sun visor with anything casual.

      I have a western style straw hat, an oversized straw hat with a ribbon and a military cap. They all have their uses. I used to also have a crusher hat with I could soak in water and then some crystals in the headband would keep my head cool for up to three hours afterwards, but I lost in on a pilgrimage. Next on my wish list are a fedora straw hat and a cloche hat. I love the collection you have here!
