Fashionable Summer Hats

There is no time like the present to get ready for summer fashions. While it is not always easy to keep up with the latest trends, there are a few summer hats that will never go out of style. However, this does not mean that you can just throw on any hat of a particular design and look great. Like most things in life, fashionable summer hats need to be carefully created with high-quality materials to ensure you look stylish every year.

At Bellissimo Hats, we do not leave anything to chance. All of our hats are made using the finest materials available, including silk imported from Italy for our flat caps. Though there are plenty of great hats to wear during the summer months, there are two types of hats at Bellissimo that can complement just about any style: Panama Straw Hats and Flat Caps.

Panama Straw Hats

The Panama Straw Hat is one of the best summer hats for men and women, as well as one of the best sun hats for travel in most locales. With a classic style and ample breathability, Panama Hats work in just about any climate, though they are ideal for warmer months. You can find the traditional Panama Hat design in hat shops around the world, but the quality can vary widely between different retailers and manufacturers. Fortunately, all of Bellissimo’s Panama Straw Hats are handwoven using only the finest materials. So, let us take a closer look at some of the most popular and fashionable Panama Hats for your summer style!

Panama Fox

The Panama Fox is one of the most popular hats in the entire Bellissimo Hats collection. The Panama Fox is available with a firm, straw form. The upturned brim is accented with one of five colors: hunter green, pink, orange, light blue, and brown. These colors also match the bow and ribbon, giving every hat a unique style, without taking away from the comfort and breathability. These designs also help make the Panama Fox a great men’s beach hat.

Montecristi Clásico

The Montecristi Clásico is a classy reimagining of the standard Panama Hat design. With a black ribbon and depressed crown, the Montecristi Clásico is the perfect summer hat for a garden party, gala, or any event that requires you to look your best. The handwoven design will be sure to impress and turn heads wherever you go!

Montecristi Moderno

The Montecristi Moderno bears a striking resemblance to the Montecristi Clásico — with a few important distinctions. Unlike the Clásico, the Montecristi Moderno features a classic brown bow and ribbon. Additionally, the raised crown gives you the ability to wear your hat the way you want. Whether you would like to wear your fedora level like a sun hat or inclined for increased visibility, the Montecristi Moderno works as a highly fashionable summer hat.

The Rancher Authentic

The Rancher Authentic is one of the most unique Panama Hats offered by Bellissimo. Unlike the Panama Fox and Montecristi variations, the Rancher Authentic has a wide, downturned brim. This makes it the ideal sun hat for women and men. The 4" teardrop crown is complemented by a premium leather band and feather to add a splash of elegance to your style.

Flat Caps

Much like Panama Hats, Flat Caps have seen a resurgence as fashionable summer hats in recent years. Though not as breathable as Panama Hats, Flat Caps do not have a brim over the ear, which makes it easier to take advantage of cool summer breezes. The traditional flat cap hat, sometimes known as an “Irish cap,” is usually more popular with men, but there are varied sizes and designs that are great for everyone.

The Summer Patchwork

Whether you’re enjoying an afternoon at the golf course or relaxing by the pool, the Summer Patchwork Flat Cap is a great hat to help you show off your style. The floral lining and patchwork design will help you stand out from the crowd and look great while you do it. Made from 100% linen, the Summer Patchwork is both stylish and comfortable.

The Top Button Collection

At Bellissimo Hats, we believe in providing our customers with as many choices as possible — especially when it comes to fashionable summer hats. As the name implies, the Top Button Collection features various hats from our Flat Cap product line that are complimented by top buttons. While these looks might recall a bygone era, they will never go out of style.

The first Flat Cap in the Top Button Collection is the New Yorker. This blended Flat Cap has a classic gray color and comes in multiple sizes — from Small to XXL. It also features leather trimming on the brim and 100% cotton lining to help keep your head cool when the weather is hot.

The next Flat Cap hat in the Top Button Collection is the Cork. This tweed cap has a little more versatility than the New Yorker, as it comes in both gray and light brown. The brim and top button are both cork, which is where this fashionable cap derives its name. Finally, the Cork is made from a blend of linen and cotton, giving it an extremely soft, comfortable fit.

The last hat in the Top Button Collection is the Irish cap. Made in Italy with linen and cotton, the Irish features a slightly longer front brim than other hats in this collection. The symmetrical pattern gives this classic hat a more modern feel, making it a great choice for people of any age.

The Plaid Collection

The Plaid Collection features scally caps with similar patterns and designs. Nonetheless, every cap in the Plaid Collection has its own unique features that make it a great choice for the summer. At Bellissimo Hats, our Plaid Collection includes the Denim, the Summer Newsboy, the Tulum, and the Havana.

The Denim Flat Cap immediately stands out for its bright blue coloring and dark brim. It makes a great addition to most styles — even if you just want to throw on jeans and a t-shirt. The exterior is made from 100% linen, while the interior lining is 100% cotton for maximum comfort.

The Summer Newsboy is an old-school design with a modern twist. Unlike the traditional Flat Caps of decades past, the Summer Newsboy features an elongated trim in the back, providing better coverage against the summer sun. Like other hats in the Plaid Collection, the Summer Newsboy is made from 100% linen and cotton.

Next, the Tulum reintroduces bright colors and customization options. You can choose between the red or camel designs, both of which offer beautiful plaid patterns. Additionally, the Tulum has cotton lining with 100% silk to give it a cooler touch against the skin.

Finally, the Havana offers a blend of cotton and silk. This Italian-made Flat Cap has a symmetrical, back-to-front pattern and a mix of gray and camel coloration. Like other hats in the Plaid Collection, the Havana is one of the best hats for people who want the stylish look of a Flat Cap without dealing with itchy or hot materials.
