(SPOT.ph) What’s that—a hat? Sunglasses are usually everyone's go-to accessory to shield their face from the sun, along with a healthy dose of SPF, but a cool hat never hurts, right? Not only will it keep you cool under protective shade, it’s also a great accessory that works for all kinds of destinations.
Check out these 10 hats for all of your summer getaways:
For bumming at the beach
Panama Hat with Shells (P795) from Stradivarius
Nothing says beach bum like a straw hat—we’ve currently got our eyes on this one from Stradivarius, which has cute seashells strung around the base of the crown—it’ll add that extra boho touch to any of your looks. We recommend pairing it with loose tops and flowy pants.
Palma Sunvisor (P850) from The Pennyworth Shop
While big floppy hats are a beach staple, try something a little different like this rattan sunvisor from The Pennyworth Shop? If you’re still obsessed with woven bags (and who isn’t?), this’ll pair great with them. Plus, it’ll hold onto your head much better than an average straw hat—perfect for breezy places or if you like playing beach sports!
Available at The Park, 4/F East Wing, Shangri-La Plaza, Mandaluyong City.
For working on that beach bod
Climacool Running Cap (P1,000) from Adidas
If you’re feeling sporty this summer, this cap from Adidas will come in handy for anything from quick jogs to mountain hikes—it’ll protect your eyes and face from the sun, but its lightweight, airy material won’t bother you in the heat. We’re currently eyeing this bright coral shade—just to be in theme with 2019’s color of the year.
Women’s Fly-By Visor (P995) from Under Armour
If you want sun protection while you’re outdoors without any of that pesky hat hair, you might like a visor. This one from Under Armour comes in cute colors like a bright coral and a muted lilac plus some more practical ones like black and white—wouldn’t blame you if you wanted to collect them all; you can shuffle through them throughout the summer.
For summer in the city
Shimmering Cap (P899) from H&M
Shine brighter than the sun even when you’re stuck in the city with this reflective cap from H&M. The holographic silver material will go with any outfit and you’ll especially love pairing it with comfy streetwear for busy (not to mention hot) days around the Metro.
Bella Bucket Hat (P599) from Rubi
Denim works for all styles and occasions so you can rock this hat from Rubi with pretty much any outfit and give it a funky, '90s-inspired touch—think Fresh Prince of Bel Air. We’re picturing it with a graphic tee, chunky sneakers, and maybe a tote bag.
For your next big adventure
Binakol Bucket Hat (P1,350) from The Olive Tree
This bucket hat from The Olive Tree stands out with its fabric made of binakol, a material woven in the Ilocos Region. It’s got that same rustic feel you’d find on a banig. Bring it with you on your next exotic adventure like a little piece of home.
Tie-Dye Cap (P705) from Bershka
Whether you’re adventurous with your travels or your style, you’ll like this pastel pink-and-blue tie-dye cap from Bershka. Top any look with it for a little more color and life. It’ll come in handy when braving through crowds of tourists with your vacation buds—you’ll never be difficult to spot.
For a good ol’ summer staycation
Braided Bucket Hat (P1,295) from Mango
Whether you’re lounging by the pool doing...well, nothing, or enjoying a lazy Sunday afternoon in your garden, you’ll love throwing on this braided, rainbow-colored hat from Mango. Pair it with your fave day-off clothes for an extra bit of quirk and color to your look.
Killian Single Fedora Hat Natural (P2,450) from Goorin
We love the nautical look of this fedora from Goorin—you’ll look like you just walked straight off a yacht even if you’re just spending summer in the city. Wear it with a huge pair of sunnies and some loose, boho-style clothing for a look that’s as relaxed as you are.
Available at Rustan’s.
