A hat is the perfect accessory to wear for the summer. Chic and functional, it is easy to look like you have it all together with a fashionable hat, and shield your face from the harmful UV rays from the sun. We picked out 7 excellent hats for the languid summer days:

Woven Paper Hat, US$567


You could say this hat is somewhat symbolic of summer picnics and lavish boat trips, given its immense style factor. Made in Italy from woven paper, Gucci’s paper hat brings out a wide structured brim, and is lined with luxurious fuchsia grosgrain and satin. Following the maison’s 'New Flora' motif, the hat sports a silk-satin sash tie for a stunning finish.
