The great thing about this site is the clear representation of lots of very traditional styles of hats. http://www.annemoore.com

My favorite is the Hampton classic:

Attractive floppy hats
So I don't want to burn my face in the hot hot sun this summer and although I have a military-style hat the brim is only on the front, so I think the sun still gets my face from the sides...

I have been looking around and an attractive, wide-brimmed hat is a hard thing to find (in straw or any other material). Seems like most of them are either bucket hats (which make me think of pleated "mom" pants) or cowboy hats (yeeehawww)Add to the fact that I have a small head so I get lost under most hats...

I bought a ridiculous green camo floppy hat (I don't know, croc hunter style or army srgnt style or something...) I figured since all the hats looked ridiculous why go for straw or hideous neon madras (often with some rhinestone embellishments, gorgeous), go CAMO! You know make a statement...of some kind...hah (And I am also a *little* punk although "floppy hat" doesn't really go with punk and I generally don't care for camo at all). Well, I don't love it but it was $3. Le sigh. I want to replace this bizarre thing ASAP.

But, you know, every so often I see pictures of beautiful floppy hats, like this one below. Where on earth could I go about finding such a lovely? Also, any other floppy hat recs? Post yours if you got 'em!

Well, Banana Republic has these...



And J Crew has this one...



But if your personal style is more punk-ish, have you considered a parasol?

I love those

I have a black one similar to the one in post 1, that I sometimes used this winter.. it's more of a winter-y fabric

and I recently bought a white one like it (in a lighter fabric) for this summer

there's just something about them that I love, when I wear them I just feel so.. french

Thanks Hebden! and yes I did think of parasols because they are so pretty. But I also realized that they will not be practical all the time (sitting outside working on my laptop or something)

When I think of those hats, I think of Jennifer Lopez. I only wear those when I want to be J-Lo diva-esque!

Haha me too, even though I think I have seen her in a hat like that once!

I only have one hat. Its a brown knitted one for winter. (It is worn by one of the old women on the Warburtons ads. :p) I don't really know what type of hat would go with my wardrobe.

i bought a black one at forever 21 a couple months ago for about eight dollars. it's most like that jcrew one posted above. i think they're stocking a similar version these days but not quite the same one.

OOoo! Those Pucci's are nice.

I need a nice wide brim hat too. I have to walk a lot, and the sun is torture on my skin.
