There’s nothing we love more than glow-y bronzed skin in the summertime, but powerful sun rays can actually cause our skin serious damage. That’s why, in addition to your sunscreen, we recommend introducing an accessory into your wardrobe that looks totally cute while it helps protect you from the sun.  This two-in-one is a no-brainer, so if you think you “can’t pull them off,” think again, ladies.

Sun hats are a summer must-have. Throw one on with any beach outfit, and suddenly you’re the epitome of chic. Sun hats shield your face from harmful UV rays, which can cause wrinkles and skin cancer. We’ve made a list of the cutest sun hats this season and we think every fashionista should have at least one in her closet (or her beach bag). The styles range from super-floppy, to cowboy-ish, to straight up diva. Basically, there’s something here for everybody.

If you’re running to the beach or pool this weekend, make sure you protect your scalp and look fabulous doing it. Shop our picks below!
