Summer is finally here, bringing with it the promise of warm days spent lounging on sandy beaches and dipping into refreshing waves. As we embark on this season of sun-soaked adventures, it's time to revamp our wardrobes and ensure we're equipped for both style and practicality.
So while you are eagerly selecting the perfect swimsuits and trendy beachwear, don’t overlook the importance of protecting yourself from harmful UV rays, intense glare, and other beach elements that can take a toll on your well-being. That's where the stylish and functional headwear from Brixton comes in, offering the perfect accessory for your next beach day.
And if you’re still not sure whether a hat will make or break your summer beach attire, here are our top four reasons why hats are essential to your beach vacation wardrobe.
Sun Protection: Making a Shady Statement
When it comes to spending long hours outdoors, a hat for protection from the sun should be a top priority. Excessive sun exposure can lead to sunburn, premature aging, and even increase your risk of skin cancer.
While sunscreen is a must-have, a hat is a great way to provide additional protection for the most vulnerable parts of your body, including your face, neck, and ears. At Brixton, our summer hat collection has great options for protecting against the rays.
Opt for our wide-brimmed Madeira Pattern Straw Hat for ample sun protection that looks great paired with denim shorts and a button-down shirt if you’re looking for something bright and fun. Another great choice is our Aloha Straw Fedora that’s crafted with lightweight seagrass straw, providing excellent breathability and coverage, in an on-trend, beachy silhouette.
Style: Stepping Up Your Beach Look Game
Beach fashion is all about effortlessly chic and laid-back vibes, and a hat is one of the best options available for you to take your beach outfit to new heights of style. Whether you're lounging by the water's edge or strolling along the shoreline, a hat adds a touch of personality, individuality, and flair to your look.
Brixton's hats for the beach come in various styles to suit different preferences. Our Bandera Reserve Straw Hat is a clean, sleek piece of headwear that can be dressed up and down depending on the occasion. And for a more classic choice, the Reno Straw Hat has a timeless shape that works with even your beachiest fits.
Shield Against the Wind: Your Hair's Best Ally
The beach offers breathtaking views and a refreshing atmosphere, but it also brings with it the challenge of gusty winds that can wreak havoc on your hair. Whether you’ve had a bad hair day or just want to keep your hair out of your face, hats are a great way to keep your locks in place.
At Brixton, we understand the importance of wind-proof headwear. That’s why we have a wide variety of sturdy, stunning beach hats that won’t fly away in the breeze. Our Jasper Packable Bucket Hat is made with packable cotton and a shapeable brim that springs back to shape after travel. Long neckties add a romantic touch and make for a great way to keep the hat on your head no matter how strong the wind gets. Similarly, our Mitch Packable Sun Hat (with straps) offers exceptional quality construction and a secure fit, allowing you to embrace the wind while keeping your hair effortlessly in place.
Convenience: Never Lose Sight of Your Essentials
One of the primary reasons to wear a hat to the beach is the convenience it offers. Many hats come equipped with useful features that allow you to keep your beach essentials close at hand.
How many times have you placed your sunglasses on a towel or beach chair, only to forget about them and risk losing or damaging them? With a hat, you can securely hold onto your sunglasses by simply popping them onto the brim, ensuring they are always within reach when you need them.
Not sure which hats offer the most convenience? We’ve got you covered! Our collection includes standout options like the Petra Packable Bucket Hat that’s designed to be easily packed into your suitcase, maintain its shape, and offer ample coverage from the sun's rays. Another excellent choice is the Redding Straw Bucket Hat that’s specifically crafted for beachgoers. This hat's lightweight and breathable straw construction not only provides relief from the heat but also adds a touch of seaside elegance to your ensemble.
