Just the sight of one of those iconic, impossibly large wide-brim sun hats makes us think of chic holidays on the French Rivera. Or in Capri. Or Ibiza. Think Audrey Hepburn or Slim Aarons – you know the vibe.
Of course, such a hat is nearly impossible to travel with if you’re flying commercial. So for those moments when you need to fit everything into a carry-on, there’s also the far more practical crushable bucket hat, which is equally stylish and useful to protect against the sun. Or the classic baseball cap. Or even a chic visor.
If you’re in the market for a topper before you head out on your next summer adventure, here are 8 of the best luxury designer sun hats to add a touch of cool glamour to even the hottest summer days, whether you prefer a bucket, a baseball cap, a visor or a wide-brimmed topper. Now all you need is the perfect swimsuit!
8 best luxury designer sun hats
1. The Freya brand magnolia hat.
We begin our list of the best luxury designer sun hats of 2022 with a classic. The Freya Brand’s black and ivory woven straw hat is an easy way to instantly elevate almost any summer outfit.
BUY NOW: $240.
2. JACQUEMUS Le Bob Picchu bucket hat.
The impetus for the craze last summer for enormous wide-brim straw sun hats was a version Jacquemus sent down the runway (technically it was a field of lavender in Provence). This season’s bucket hats are a bit less glamorous, but just as much fun.

Who says a visor has to be sporty? Add some edge to a floral ensemble with Erdem’s cotton visor. It ties gracefully at the back with a bow.

A chic sun hat can come in handy even after dark. Take, for example, this reversible bucket hat from Gucci in shimmering rich green lamé (it also comes in pink). This is really two looks in one, making it the perfect travel companion.

Go for mussed-up summer glamour with this Eugenia Kim distressed reversible bucket hat. Opt for either champagne or ivory dupioni silk. We love that the frayed edges keep it from being too precious.
