The Best Sun Hats for Vacation – the best floppy hats for the beach, fedoras, bucket hats, sun visors and more
If you’ve been following me for awhile, you KNOW I love a good sunhat. Not only are they an easy way to protect your face and neck from the sun, but it’s a great way to look fab, even if you’re sweating in hot-and-humid Bali, or your hair is wet from jumping off a boat in the Greek Isles. The perfect sun hat, whether it’s a floppy sunhat, a cute women’s fedora, or even an adorable vacation dad hat, is the #1 packing essential for me.
Whether you’re lounging on the beach, exploring a new travel destination, or poolside in your own backyard, cute sun hats are a stylish summer look and a chic barrier to the sun’s rays.
BTW – I highly recommend this hat box for traveling with your sun hat – it is so chic, and keeps them nice and not squished while you’re traveling!

Absolutely LOVE this ultra-wide brim hat, and have been wearing it a ton lately on my travels.
Destination: Beach Clubbing in St. Tropez
Lack of Color Ultra-wide Palma Boater – I love this brand’s hats – they’re so sturdy and last FOREVER – seriously worth every penny.
I wore this one on my honeymoon and was OBSESSED. It’s perfect for every destination.
Love the open visor look these days.
Destination: Sipping spritzes in the Amalfi Coast
Love everything Hat Attack does – their quality is SO superior – and my favorite part of buying hats from Revolve is the easy returns if it doesn’t fit right – they include the return label right in your package so all you have to do is stick it in the mail if you don’t like it.
Destination: Resorting in Maui
this hat is a total splurge but when I tell you it’s MY FAVORITE HAT I’ve ever owned, I’m not lying.
I love the puka shell brim on this one – it just screams Hawaii honeymoon to me!
Destination: A weekend in Napa Valley
If you’re packing for Napa Valley, you’re definitely going to want to bring a cute hat to go with your wine-tasting outfit!

The best budget sun hats for a beach vacation
I’m all for spending on a high quality sun hat that will last FOREVER (seriously, I’ve had some of my favorites for years!!!) but sometimes, you just want a knockaround hat you don’t mind getting saltwater on and can wear without a care – so here are some of my favorite sun hats that don’t break the bank.
The best vacation dad hats
Sometimes, you just need a great dad hat to throw on on your resort walk or boat day.
How to pack a sun hat so it doesn’t lose it’s shape and structure
I don’t care how ‘packable’ a brand claims their sunhats are, I never, ever put my precious sun hats in my suitcase! So then what do you do? I can usually always be found wearing one of my favorite sunhats in the airport anytime I’m packing for a tropical vacation.
If I’m just bringing one sun hat, or don’t need a whole other suitcase, I love using my TopTote – it’s a GENIUS patented product that holds your hat on top of your tote bag or suitcase while you travel (via a magnet) – it’s lifechanging.
If I want to bring more hats (which I normally do when I’m packing for a beach vacation), I love using a hat box to pack a few sun hats in an easy and chic suitcase of their own. I LOVE this one from the chic, vintage-inspired brand Steamline Luggage.
And if I MUST put it in my checked bag or carry on suitcase, I make sure I stuff the sunhat with things in the head of the hat and make sure the brim is flat and secured with other things in my suitcase. But I do not recommend packing a big floppy hat, or any that might lose its structure more easily. Just wear it to the airport – it’ll look great with your chic flying outfit.
