From wide brim sun hats and beach fedora hats to summer wedding hats and more, Gold Coast Couture is here to help. Here is our ultimate guide to the best summer hats for the 2020 season:

Large & Oversized Sun Hats

Oversized summer hats are the perfect accessory to keep unwanted sun out of your eyes. The coverage these hats provide will protect from harmful sunburn and potential skin damage while also topping off your outfit. There’s a reason these hats are so popular. They’re a fit for a variety of occasions, from backyard weddings to beach days with the family.

This large summer hat from Eugenia Kim is a gorgeous pick for a variety of occasions. The black and beige  Sunny hat can be paired with various formal attire as well as a cute sundress. Whatever your occasion, this large summer hat is for you.

Summer Wedding Hats

Summer weddings are what we look forward to all year. They’re a romantic celebration of love and fashion, of course. Every summer wedding presents the opportunity for you to be dressed to the nines, as long as you don’t outdo the bride. A summer wedding hat is the missing piece you’ve been looking for. Finish off your wedding ensemble with a summer hat, and you’ll be the talk of the party.

We’re huge fans of this piece from Vixen Millinery.  The Kindra offers a beautiful pink pastel color that can be paired with a number of other pastels or classic black, navy, beige, and more. It’s the perfect fun piece to wear as your go-to summer wedding hat.

Wide Brim Sun Hats

Wide brim sun hats are a staple of summer. These hats can be seen everywhere from a girls brunch to a beach day. The styling opportunities wide brim sun hats hold are endless. And they’re proven to keep sun out of your eyes and deter sunburn.

This fun,  wide brim sun hat from Whiteley is a great versatile piece. This casual piece is great for just going around town or a day out with the family. Its light colors allow you to pair it with multiple outfits.

Summer & Beach Fedoras

Summer fedoras are some of the most popular casual hat options. A beach fedora hat is easy to style with any outfit and looks great on anyone. A summer fedora should be your go-to option for something easy, casual, and versatile.

The Courtneyfrom Eugenia Kim is the ideal hat to pair with a casual beach dress or simply a swimsuit. Its casualness allows it to be paired with any beachwear you prefer. Just throw it in your beach bag, and you’re set.

Women’s Fedora Sun Hat

Women’s fedora sun hats aren’t all casual. They can be dressed up, dressed down, and can incorporate unique elements that make them stand out. These hats are great for a lunch out with friends or a day spent shopping. Whatever you prefer, you can find a women’s fedora sun hat that you’ll fall in love with.

One of our favorite pieces is from Whiteley, the  Remi Fedora Hat. Its light taupe and ivory coloring screams summer. Its metallic shine also adds a bit of sparkle to your everyday wear.

Ladies Summer Trilby Sun Hat

Ladies trilby sun hats are similar to fedoras, but not completely. Both hats have a small all-around brim and similar head features, but a summer trilby hat will feature a downturned front paired with slightly raised sides. A trilby hat generally features a narrow brim. These hats are a great summer accessory, perfect for a variety of occasions.

This summer trilby hat from Jane Taylor London is an excellent addition to your summer wardrobe.  The Yasmin is a bold white that can be paired with endless casual outfits.

Small Sun Hat

Looking for a sun hat but not too excited about the wide brim style? Lucky for you, there’s plenty of small sun hats out there that are perfectly adequate at blocking sun without the large brim.

This small sun hat from Vivien Sheriff is just that. The Umbria is styled with a blue silk scarf to give it the perfect pop of color. We think this hat would look perfect with a white sundress, but the styling is up to you!

Designer Sun Hat Highlight: Eugenia Kim Sun Hats

Eugenia Kim has already been featured a few times throughout this piece, but we think she deserves her own spotlight. Eugenia Kim is an NYC-based accessory and hat designer, well known for her sun hat designs. She creates some of the most elegant designer sun hats that are worthy of the praise.

Our spotlight pick is this stunning  Lettie Visor Hat. This Eugenia Kim sun hat is exceptionally unique as it has an all-around brim as well as an open crown to showcase your updo. The visor nature of this gorgeous hat is one-of-a-kind, and the color is beautiful. This designer sun hat is great for everything, from a day at Wimbledon to enjoying a backyard lunch with the husband.
