What types of hats are perfect for spring? — Liz via e-mail.

Spring and summer are synonymous with stylish chapeaus! Not only are hats fabulous add-ons to your seasonal attire, but they’re also crucial for protecting your face (and hair) from the sun! With that said, I rarely hit the Hamptons heat without one essential excessory! This season, my three favorite hat styles are:

  1. Oversized Sun Hat: As usual, I say the bigger the better! Brette Sandler’s Raffia Sunhat is perfectly sized, plus I just LOVE the kaleidoscope-printed band—so versatile and chic. Gap’s Floppy Hat is also a great option if you are looking for something a little darker-toned. If you plan on spending hours in the sun, this is the best pick…instant shade!
  2. Straw Fedora: A cool fedora can be worn both day and night, whether you are on the beach or at a dinner party. As a devotee of all Eugenia Kim designs, I fell head-over-heels in love with her latest creation—the Max Fedora (with leopard trim)—obvi. Pair it with a Floral Maxi Dress, a hammered cuff and gold sandals to complete your spring to summer- appropriate look!
  3. Headscarf: Aside from sun-shielding hats, headscarves also top my list of must-have headwear! Take inspiration from Marni’s S/S runway and opt for Topshop’s Painted Flower Headband or Free People’s Paisley Scarf—totally glamorous right? xoRZ
