Summer hats for summer 2012

Summer is here and one of the main things every Fashionista will need this warm weather season is a hat! Hats serve many purposes during the hot weather season. First, hats can help block the sun from hitting your face. There are even hats on the market, such as the wide brimmed hats from San Diego Hat Company, which offer SPF protection. This is a fabulous feature from a hat since it not only allows you to look fashionable and fabulous, but it also protects your skin. Love that!

Hats are also a fun way to express your personal style while lounging poolside, building sandcastles on the beach or listening to your favorite band play in a wide open outdoor venue. Wide brimmed hats are also great on warm summer days while strolling outdoor shopping centers, going to the park and for any outdoor activity you can think of; except maybe marathon running 

Since color is all the rage this season, hat shopping for summer 2012 is fun and playful. You can find a wide brimmed hat in any color you want. Hats are being shown in full color as well as natural color with a pop of color on the trim. This allows you many options for the summer season. Do you feel like having one bright hat?
