Hats are often considered a relatively divisive accessory, and it's not really hard to see why: They can mess up your hair, be too much of a statement or bring up some nagging insecurity you have about the literal size of your head (which is totally fine, by the way!). We get it. No matter what kind, they can be an intimidating accessory.
But now that we've officially entered summer and the sun is finally back full time, we'd like to take a minute to argue that cute hats really do exist, and they're showing up in numbers right now all over Instagram to prove it. From bucket hats to wide-brim straw hats à la that Jacquemus stunner — but, like, way less intense — the styles getting the most love at the moment are laid back, easy to incorporate into just about any wardrobe without fear of looking like a royal wedding guest.
Should you need further convincing, we've pulled together four top summer 2018 hat trends right here, along with our favorite picks to shop.
