It may still be cold in many parts of the country, but summer is actually just around the corner. We’re officially well into spring, so the weather is finally starting to get warmer.

As the temperature gets hotter, most people start to transition their wardrobes. Once the sun peeks out from behind the clouds, we all know it’s time to pull out the sundresses and put away the winter coats.

If you plan on spending time outside this summer (and let’s be honest, who doesn’t?), you need to make sure you have the proper gear to avoid sunburns. This year, keep your skin looking fabulous by stocking up on high-SPF sunscreen and protective clothing.

Of course, protecting your skin doesn’t mean you have to compromise your style. Brighten up your wardrobe and ramp up your summer fashion game with these gorgeous summer hats.

Not only will these summer hats protect your face from the sun, they’ll also look chic with any outfit.
