Find the perfect topper for spring and summer as the weather heats up.
Nothing says summer like a floppy hat. No matter the changing style, millinery has been a staple of the fashion industry since the dawn of time. Not only stylish and statement-making, but hats can also be an invaluable addition to your vacation wardrobe. Hats keep you cool and protect your face, eyes and scalp from harmful UV rays. (Trust me, you don’t want any sunburn where you brush your hair.)
Along with the time-honored floppy straw hat – we don’t think that they’ll ever go the way of the dodo – hat trends for 2018 evoke the return of the 90s with visors, buckets and taste for assertive logos. ELYSIAN chose our favorite hats from the best headwear designers, so you can get out there in the sun.
Jacquemus Oversized Straw Hat
Ditch the umbrella with this oversized straw hat from Jacquemus. Gently woven with an asymmetrical twist, this hat is the perfect combination of coy and chic.
Eugenia Kim Colette Boater
A play on the classic boater, this hat was woven with the environmentally friendly hemp and is embellished with faux pearls. We suggest pairing it with monochrome stripes for a polished style in any setting.
Summertime freedom is positively exemplified by the classic baseball cap. For a grocery run, tennis game or what-have-you, this Gucci floral-embroidered cap defines the springtime vibe.
Helen Kaminski Mai Visor
Maybe you’re not quite ready to take the plunge to the more extreme visors of the season – check out the Christian Dior below – and this straw addition is quite a middle ground between beachy and sleek.
This vibrant topper brings forward daydreams of cabanas and clear blue skies. The floral embroidery and bursting turquoise color will give you the confidence boost to bring any outfit to life.
Dior “DiorClub1” Visor
Logos aren’t only all over handbags this season. The DiorClub1 visors, premiered at the fashion house’s Spring/Summer 2018 collection, are not only intimidatingly chic but also protect against UVA and UVB rays.
Bucket hats are back, but they definitely aren’t as cringey as they were back in the 90s. This Gucci oversized bucket is sewn from luxurious, lightweight silk and satin with a print nspired by an 18th century archaeological book.
Woven in soft, feminine pink, this visor from Eugenia Kim is reminiscent of a stroll through the rose garden or a round of mimosas on the porch.
Frayed brim details and hand-painted gauze scarf complete this boho head-topper. Tie it under your chin or let it trail behind you in the wind.
Gladys Tamez Christy Distressed Straw Hat
Nothing says sunshine like bright yellow. With a green cord trim at the hat break, it is perfect outdoorsy addition for your next walk on the beach or casual hike through the foothills.
Colorful, wide-brimmed and infinitely summery, this Italian-made sunhat is sure to showcase your playful side and your taste for sunshine.
