28 Sun Hats Under $100 You’ll Actually Want to Buy

With beach season well underway, it’s not a bad idea to add some sun protection in the hat department — especially if your beach umbrella is not up to snuff or you’re not one to reapply. Turns out there’s a wide range of sun hats to be had these days under $100: Whether you’re of the bucket-hat persuasion, a traditionalist for floppy sun hats, or trying a summer fedora on for size (they’re not the same breed as the felt ones, okay?). Below, our favorites in every category.
