Shop the Celebrity Trend: The Essential Floppy Sun Hat

Dermatologists agree that wide-brimmed hats are a great way to shield yourself from the sun’s aging rays—and now, thanks to celebs like Alek Wek, Rachel Zoe, and Vanessa Hudgens, we can all agree that sun hats are the most stylish way to stay sun-safe.

Stylista Zoe was seen out and about in Malibu wearing a floppy straw hat with a thin leather band, and model Wek stepped on the red carpet at the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic in a black and white woven sun hat. Headgear in of-the-moment straw and raffia will lend any outfit an instantly beachy feel. Hudgens went for a more bohemian vibe at Coachella, wearing a Lovely Bird felt hat with a feather sash. Wear your sun hat with a flowing maxi dress for a 70s-inspired look, or look chic poolside (or streetside) by pairing a floppy straw hat with a LWD.
