If you’ve never thought of yourself as a hat person then there’s a good chance you’ve never found the right fashionable accessory that compliments your face shape, dress, and lifestyle. It’s been said that the perfect hat will not only physically fit around your head, but once it is on it feels like an extension of your character and you have an urge to wear it on a daily, weekly, or seasonally basis. To emphasize this point, American science fiction and fantasy writer Connie Willis once said, “There are some things one is born to wear, and I had obviously been fated to wear this hat.”

If you are on the lookout for a hat you’ve been fated to wear this summer then look no further. This list of top 5 chic and stylish summer hats for women will help you complete your fun loving, fresh flowing, and fabulously fashionable seasonal look. They will also provide you with sun protection to reduce premature aging and minimize the risk of skin cancer as you head to the beach, lake, golf course, or garden.
