Sun Protection Hats

The sun’s rays feel hotter and hotter each year, and the importance of sun protection hats has become increasingly essential now more than ever.

When one thinks of sun protection, the automatic thought is, of course, sunblock.  Sure, sunblock works great and is very important to use no matter what the weather forecast may be, but why not take protection one step further by physically protecting your most preciously exposed area with a sun protection hat?  After all, there is only so much that SPF 1000 can do.

No more squinting in the sun, no more sunglass tan lines– these hats will be sure to block the potentially harmful ultraviolet rays from your gorgeous face, all while looking fresh and fashionable.

Here at Boardwalk Style, we have your best interests at heart, and we want to see you shine in the sun, while being health conscious about sun protection too!

Below are  the Top 10 UPF 50+ Boardwalk Style sun hats that give the best sun protection.  Curious what UPF stands for?  UPF 50+ means that the Ultraviolet Protection Factor of 50+ will block 98% UV radiation (the highest rating on the market).

Whether you decide on a lampshade style or a wide brim, don’t be afraid to have fun in the sun!  If you are pale and freckle easily, or are already tan and trying to prevent getting darker, sun protection hats for women are a sure way to protect the eyes, face and neck.
