The Best Sun Hats To Go With Your Swimsuit

If you’re looking for the perfect accessory to go with your new swimsuit, try on a summer sun hat to get a fresh, breezy look that’s fitting for any day at the sea. For those who haven't discovered the joys of a sun hat, you're in for a treat. 

Sun hats are one of the best types of accessories you can bring along with your swimsuit for both style and protection. Wearing a sun hat is an easy way to protect your face, neck, and ears from sunburn, providing shade to make you more comfortable when you lounge on the sand for a few hours. 

Best of all, they are the perfect accessory that accentuates your beach look and shows off your swimsuit. Fashion retailers have caught on to this, and with so many styles to choose from, you’ll be sure to find a sun hat to match your personal style. 

Whether you're looking for a wide-brimmed hat to keep the sun off your face or a rollup visor that you can just throw in your tote bag, here are some of our favorite sun hats to pair with your new Anne Cole swimsuit!

Panama Hat

Panama Hats - The Best Sun Hats To Go With Your Swimsuit

Look stylish and trendy in a casual Panama hat, also known as an Ecuadorian hat since its fashion hails from the South American country. Panama hats have a lightweight and breathable feel, which makes for a comfortable outfit when paired with a summer tankini

Wear this modern white Panama hat or this woven straw Panama hat with a swimsuit and coverup, such as our twist front bandeaukini and button down cover up, for a laid back style.

Roll Up Sun Hat

If you’re more interested in getting a sun hat that is both compact and convenient, roll up sun hats and visors make an excellent companion to your tote bag and will leave plenty of room for your sunscreen and other beach items.

Although roll up sun hats do not provide coverage for your scalp, they still provide shade and relief from the heat. 

Create the Look

Break out your summer reading and wear this raffia visor with a colorful striped high neck tankini top and a side tie swim bottom for vibrant beach style. 

Look peachy fresh with this roll up visor and pair it with a high neck beaded tankini top and twist front boy shorts.

Fedora Sun Hat

A classic hat that goes with any style, fedoras are a fun way to add flair to your beach outfit without any work. Fedoras give you a mix of class and casual style and can be worn with your favorite shades and bikini top

Create the Look

For example, pair our colorblock bandeau bikini top and colorblock mid rise bikini bottom with this twisted straw Fedora which features a trendy rope accent to give your day at the sea a pop of color and vibrancy. 

Or pair this broad brim Fedora with a ribbon trim, with a colorful striped halter bikini top and matching mid rise bikini bottom for a trendy and vibrant look.

Straw Hat

Straw Hat - The Best Sun Hats To Go With Your Swimsuit

Nothing can beat the heat like a lightweight straw hat you can wear while dipping your toes in the ocean waves or while reading a good book on your beach chair. Straw hats can come in a wide variety of shapes and styles but will always keep your head shielded from the harsh sun rays. 

Create the Look

Go for a tropical swimsuit look by pairing our palm print twist front bandeaukini swim top and matching high waist shirred swim bottom. Then, find an oversized fringe straw hat such as this one to complete your island look. 

For a feminine and elegant beach look, wear our lace back lingerie maillot swimsuit with this scalloped straw hat.

Boater Hat

Style up your look with a boater hat, which adds a vintage twist to your summer look. Unlike Panama hats or fedoras, boater hats have a distinctly flat crown and brim, a style that is reminiscent of boating and sailing, as well as the Italian canals of Venice.

Create the Look

Wear this large wide brimmed boater hat with a colorful v neck cross back one piece for a stand out, vibrant look. A beige boater hat with a ribbon trim will add a fun, stylish twist to this colorblock bandeau one piece.
