Hats are relatively easy to find for special occasions. You already have an outfit picked out, so you just need to find a hat that matches. However, when it comes accessorizing your daily look, it can be more difficult to find the right hat.
At Gold Coast Couture, we offer a range of casual hats in a variety of styles and for every occasion. Whether you are looking for a wide-brimmed sun hat perfect for lounging at the beach or a beret to add a touch of elegance to your look, we can help you find the perfect casual hat.
7 Popular Types of Women’s Casual Hats
There are endless options for casual hats for ladies. Start your search by looking through these types of casual hats to find one that matches your personal fashion style.
Baseball caps aren’t just for sports anymore. Instead, this type of hat has become a fashion accessory for any casual look.
You can rock a baseball cap with both athleisure and sundresses while taking advantage of a wide variety of fabrics. From snapbacks to five- or six-panel caps, baseball caps come in many different styles. For athletic wear, a sports cap may be more your style, while a more upscale choice like our designer baseball cap in navy blue is a great way to bring some luxury to your look.
These floppy, wide-brimmed hats are perfect for days in the sun. While sun hats provide shade for your face, neck, chest—protecting you from the sun’s damaging rays—they also make a fashion statement and work well with a variety of casual, summer outfits, from maxi dresses to high-waisted jeans to swimsuits.
Whether you are relaxing by the water or attending an outdoor event, a large or small sun hat will keep you comfortable and make a statement.
Not sure where to start? Check out our multi-colored large sun hat, which is a unique choice for any occasion.
Women’s fedoras are a popular option for anyone looking for a hat to match their casual look. These hats provide some shade from the sun while not having the dramatic effect of a large, floppy sun hat.
Fedoras come in hundreds of styles, but most have a brim between two and four inches wide with an indented crown. And, while tear-shaped crowns are popular, you can also try on fedoras with a diamond-shape crown or even a center crease.
Get started with our Harlowe women’s fedora to add a striking fashion statement to your casual outfit.
Baker Boy Caps
Baker boy caps—sometimes called newsboy or pageboy caps—are a variation on the traditional flat cap. Instead of the flat style, these casual hats feature a more elevated and rounded body. Made in a variety of colors, patterns, and fabrics, baker boy caps are a game-changer for your casual look.
Women’s baker boy hats are stylish and can go with just about any outfit. Check out our black baker boy cap with gold trim to see the proof: It can go from casual to dressy in an instant.
If you’re looking for a women’s casual hat that will let you show off your hairstyle, look no further than a visor. While offering some protection from the sun, visors will also hold your hair in place without messing up your carefully crafted look (especially when you have an up-do like a ponytail, braid, chignon, or top knot).
Texture and color make a big difference here. A sleek leather band or stylish scarf can elevate your look while a woven straw pattern keeps things relaxed. Our Lettie visor hat in nude blush and ivory is a great example of a visor that takes casual to the next level.
Panama hats bring a touch of elegance to any casual summer outfit. Similar to fedoras, these hats have a central, pinched dent in the crown and a brim that varies in width. Panama hats are a touch more formal than sun hats and are gorgeous paired with casual summer looks or formal outfits alike.
These wide-brimmed hats are built for hot weather, and you can take them from season to season by accessorizing with scarves or other colorful fabrics. For inspiration, look no further than our natural Panama hat paired with a cactus scarf.
Berets are classic for a reason: They work with all types of face shapes, occasions, and styles. There are many ways to wear berets, too, depending on the vibe you want to create. You can wear it to the front of your head, pushed to one side, or toward the back of your head. Play around with its positioning to find that magic look.
Wearing a beret with your casual outfit is an easy way to add a touch of vintage, French-inspired style. It’s easy to make any look a bit more sophisticated with the fashion world’s beloved beret.
For a traditional beret that works well with any casual outfit, check out our velour beret hat in navy blue.
