We all know that the sun poses many health risks, but we can’t quite hide from it completely, especially during the summer. But we can keep our faces covered from it with not only sunscreen, but a chic, floppy and fashion-forward hat. Floppy hats are a summer staple and reminiscent of tropical vacations. This summer, wearing a floppy hat will not only keep your face stylishly covered up, but it will make you feel a little more tropical—even if you happen to live in the desert.
