These summer hats pair nicely with sustainable sunnies and SPF!

We’re heading to the beach this summer in these vegan wide brim hats! We’re also heading to the park, the coffee shop, and the latest vegan restaurants. Because when you’re having a good hat day, you need to be seen! So, choose your look, grab some SPF, and head on out the door.

Whimsy + Row

While Whimsy + Row has options, we’re all about their Friends of Friends San Miguel Hat. This 100% hand-woven palm hat offers a 4” brim. Complete the look with your favorite pair of sunnies and a sustainable summer dress.

Whether you go for the Stevie Fedora, the Chloe Derby Hat, or any of this all-vegan spot’s other great options, your skin will thank you for the extra protection from the sun. We’re loving the Temecula Fedora, the Ribbon Braid Big Floppy, and the Outrigger—shall we continue?

Will + Bear


Will + Bear knows where it’s at with vegan sun hats. The River Sand is a great go-to look for everyday wear. Or go for the Harvey Amber, a classic boater style. Either way, grab your favorite book, an organic cotton beach towel, and a spot on the sand for the perfect summer day.
