Spring/Summer Hats I Love

        Spring is here and summer is just 'round the corner and I look forward to sporting my favorite hats. I just love wearing my hats! I don't profess to know them all. The ones I discuss today will be the hats I enjoy wearing.

         I have quite a few hats in my collection. If I feel like it's a bad hair day, I'll grab a hat. Going to the beach for some fun in the sun, I'll put on a hat. To complete an outfit..... add a hat to my ensemble. As you see, it doesn't take much for me to reach for a hat and then it's out the door.  

         In no specific order, here is a list of my favorite hats I love to wear in the spring/summer to be stylish or just to keep the sun out of my eyes:


As far back as I can remember, a baseball cap was the first hat I wore. So this is ultimately my first love. I love the fit and the protection it provides my eyes from the sun. (By the way, as you can tell..... my all-time favorite baseball team is the Boston Red Sox!)


The ivy cap, also known as a golf cap or driver cap, is definitely another one of my favorites. It's so stylish! What's so great about this cap is that it's suitable for all seasons. It's packable which makes it perfect for travel. (I have to get one in every color.)



The fedora hat is most commonly worn my men but it's increasingly being worn by women. These hats are medium-brimmed with an indentation at the top of the hat's crown. Traditionally, fedoras were made out of felt, now, they can be made out of canvas, straw, or other materials. This hat is a fashion accessory with character so this hat is a "must have" for me.


A cotton beret keeps me warm on a cool summer night. Berets are already stylish themselves but some are designed with flowers, feathers, glitter, or bows to add flavor. I love these because they are so comfortable and easy to wear. Simply place it on your head and you are good to go!


This is a classic hat for those bright sunny days. Every woman should have at least one floppy sun hat. These hats are used for great protection from the sun with its wide brim. It's so much fun to accessorize my comfy beach outfit with a fabulous floppy sun hat. 

        Wearing hats since I was a little girl, I know what works for me. When choosing a hat, examine yourself. Pay attention to your head, hair,
general body type, and definitely the outfit. All this plays a factor. What's your favorite spring/summer hat?

  1. Nice sun hat. Shades your face nicely without being heavy or hot. I was never a hat wearer but this has helped a lot with glare . My eyes are so sensitive to light.. adams sh101 has helped.
