Visors are the perfect headwear for having fun in the sun! Whether you're out on the golf course, relaxing on the beach, bicycling, or enjoying a picnic, visors offer great protection for your eyes and face. Brands like Helen Kaminski, Pantropic, and Betmar offer great casual accents made with breathable materials like cotton and woven straw. Visors are a great option because they allow you to get sun protection without having to wear a full hat in hot weather (and you get to show off your hair).
Generally considered a warm weather style, boaters are a classic flat top straw hat with a stiff brim and crown. Popular in the early 20th century, boaters are making a comeback with added modern elements and creative patterns. Also traditionally known as a basher, a skimmer, or a barbershop quartet hat, boaters evoke images of sharp-dressed formal men like the Great Gatsby and Buster Keaton.
