Hat hair, don’t care. 

As Kiwis, the importance of sun safety was drilled into us as kids. Always wear SPF 50+, reapply throughout the day and never forget a sun hat. 

Not only will it minimise sun exposure, preventing early signs of ageing (a very important reason), it will also complete your stylish summer ensemble. 

There’s a hat out there for everyone, whether you consider yourself a hat person or not. We’re on a mission to find stylish options for all occasions – for the beach or for summer hiking trips. 

A few sun-safe notes: the larger the brim, the better sun protection you’ll get, covering both your face and neck from the sun. While you don’t need an entire hat wall, having a few hats for different occasions and outfits means you’ll never leave the house without one!

C&M Pagoda Cotton Hat

C&M Pagoda Cotton Hat, $99

The ultimate on-the-go cap. Perfect for early morning walks, kids’ sports days or running errands around town. Woman’s Tip: Superette is our chosen stockist for the best price!

Lack of Color Seashells Boater

Lack of Color Seashells Boater, $145

You won’t realise how handy the seashell strap is until you’re carrying every beach bag under the sun. They are the perfect addition for a summery look and feel at the Bach whilst also being practical! 

Rebe Widebrim Panama Hat

Rebe Widebrim Panama Hat, $499

You can envision yourself stretched out by the pool, fruity cocktail in hand, wearing this ultra luxe sun hat. Rebe’s hats are also stocked at Muse for a try on!

Marle Oma Hat

Marle Oma Hat, $120

The Oma Hat has become synonymous with a New Zealand summer. The minimalist oversized bucket hat style is a favourite while on-the-go. You can easily fold the hat down to fit into your tote without being worried about damaging the shape.

Gucci GG Canvas Wide Brim Hat

Gucci GG Canvas Wide Brim Hat, $1190

Yes, it’s a splurge, but hats are definitely a solid way to make a statement. We’re loving the Gucci Canvas hat for the same reason as Marle’s option – it’s not a high maintenance purchase! This is a number you’ll have for years to come.

Tory Sport Floral Print Visor

Tory Sport Floral Print Visor, $118

Never underestimate the power of a good visor for sporty summers spent at the tennis court. Whites are in and florals are a necessary addition. Tory Sport provides a great pop of colour at a reasonable price.

Eugenia Kim Ricky Organza Visor

Eugenia Kim Ricky Organza Visor, $600

While we’re on the subject of visors, this Eugenia Kim option slips into play as you head off the tennis court and into evening garden parties. Match your outfit to the organza trimming for the perfect summer wedding guest ensemble.

Dissh Alba Hat

Dissh Alba Hat, $69.99

A full matching print look? Say no more. Dissh knows how to make a monochrome statement. With the Alba Hat, you can easily mix and match with your summer basics.

Jacquemus Le Bob Artichaut Hat

Jacquemus Le Bob Artichaut Hat, $160

A little bit explorer, a little bit chic. We’ve moved on from Jacquemus’ extremely oversized straw hats for a more practical everyday number. The Le Bob Hat comes in every colour under the sun, matching perfectly to your wardrobe.

Lack of Color Terry Bucket Hat

Lack of Color Terry Bucket Hat, $119

Good things come in small packages! The fabric of summer, everything looks chic in Terry Cloth. The towelling fabric makes a perfect addition to your summer wardrobe, with the perfect amount of sun protection and style.
