We know that hats can sometimes seem a bit de trop for the less flamboyant among us, but – alongside SPF – a decent hat will shield your precious face from UV radiation (which is as evil as it sounds) like nothing else. Yes, there’s also the option of just fleeing to an underground bunker daily at dawn, but a complete dearth of sunlight might make you susceptible to rickets and therefore that's not a method of sun protection we condone. Besides, after months upon months spent in lockdown, who doesn't want an excuse to wear a veritably outdoor accessory? On that note, here are the best summer hats.

1/12

MAISON MICHEL

MAISON MICHEL AUSTIN NATURAL STRAW COWBOY HAT, £485

A Maison Michel cowboy hat is simply a hat for a chic attention-seeker.

2/12

LABECA LONDON

LABECA LONDON STONE GREY TERRY HAT, £59

We are quite tempted to pair this Labeca London hat with its complementary matching top and shorts set. There’s just something quite amusing about wearing a fully grey ensemble in the height of summer.

PRADA

PRADA BLACK NYLON LOGO PLAQUE VISOR, £320 AT BROWNS

Prada is clearly in full support of ponytails, which is a relief since we recently depleted our supply of dry shampoo.

4/12

ERDEM

ERDEM FLORAL-PRINT BUCKET HAT AND FACE COVERING, £265 AT MATCHESFASHION

We shall be wearing this Erdem bucket hat and matching face covering with black sunglasses for complete anonymity.

5/12

GANNI

GANNI SOFTWARE HEAVY COTTON HAT, £75

We turn this Ganni hat into a floppy hat whenever we wish to forgo eye contact.

6/12

LACK OF COLOUR

LACK OF COLOUR Ultra Wide Ventura straw wide-brim hat, £160 at harvey nichols

We have romantic fantasies involving this Lack of Colour hat.

7/12

LOEWE

LOEWE + Paula’s Ibiza Logo Fisherman Hat, £295 at harrods

Mercifully, the ties on this Loewe hat mean that it has significantly less chance of being swept into the ether by an aggressive breeze.

8/12

MORE JOY

MORE JOY BY CHRISTOPHER KANE COTTON CAP, £80 AT LIBERTY

Who exactly would say no to More Joy? Especially in hat form.

9/12

SLOW & SLOW

SLOW & SLOW NATURALLY DYED BANDANA, £20 AT ZERO-LIVING

Slow & Sow bandanas aren’t hats as such, but we think they deserve to be celebrated here. Made in small batches by a mother-daughter duo using only deadstock fabrics and natural dyes, these represent accessorising at its most sustainable.

10/12

OSÉREE

OSÉREE PURPLE LUMIÈRE BUCKET HAT, £110 AT BROWNS

A purple glittery bucket hat! We never thought we’d see the day! And there’s also an Oséree bikini that matches it.

10/12

CELIA B

CELIA B GREEN JACINTO HAT, £56.44

Let it be known that it was Celia B who created the floppy and flowery summer hat to rule them all.

11/12

miu miu

MIU MIU DENIM BASEBALL CAP, £280 AT FARFETCH

Denim trends come and go, but we'll always have a particular penchant for denim baseball caps – especially when they're from Miu Miu.
