Solar style.

Maryam Keyhani Classic Cruise With Ring Tube Crown.

This summer, plenty of outdoor socializing will be on the books for most of us. And for everything from park hangs to alfresco dining to daytrips to the beach, adequate sun protection will be crucial.

Luckily, the spring/summer 2021 runways offer plenty of millinery inspiration. There were futuristic fishermen’s hats at Burberry, oversized visors at Fendi, veiled sun hats at Kenzo, and ’90s-inspired bucket hats just about everywhere.

The best hats of the season offer striking silhouettes and ample sun coverage, elevating traditional designs with innovative materials and contemporary proportions. On the beach or in the city, they’ve got you covered in style.
