Incase you didn't know, I 'm a major fan of hats. Besides the fact that they protect your skin from the sun *so important* they also elevate any outfit. Seriously; a good hat can even make a plain bikini look good. I've tried hats of all price ranges, but personal opinion: i've found that the more expensive ones seem to last a bit longer. If you're looking for a good quality hat, i'd splurge. If you're new to hats and just want to get comfortable wearing them, i'd experiment with cheaper ones just to find which style you feel the best in. I know that sometimes a great quality hat might not be in your price range (i've been there) so i've rounded up some of my favorites, keeping everyone in mind.
