I wanted to round up the best summer sun hats from coast to coast after my trip to Austin this past week. I’ve realized that my style is clearly East Coast, and that my beloved Tuckernuck hat looks slightly out of place when I’m traveling out West. I received so many compliments while out and about on my rattan basket bag and my hat, and I realized it’s because it’s a bit different than what you typically see there. Which got me thinking about dressing for the location and how my summer hats might shift coast to coast.
Best Summer Sun Hats from Coast to Coast
When I’m on the East Coast or even traveling through Europe, there’s literally nothing better than the timeless silhouette and large, tailored bow of the Tuckernuck hat. If I’m in Texas or Colorado, something with a little bit of cowboy appeal feels right. Traveling to Florida? The turquoise band on this hat seems like it would play perfectly with the turquoise waters. This Panama-inspired hat feels right for exploring the old city of a Central or South American town, while these scallops are perfect for a glamorous South of France vacay.
So whether your summer vacation is taking you near or far, to the beach or the farmers market, around the corner or across the world, here’s my round up of the best summer sun hats from coast to coast.
