Brilliant beach hats for all the family

Doesn’t everything feel so much better when the sun’s out? The whole family seems to get a spring in their step, seaside trips are getting put in the diary and those holiday bookings feel more real – hurray for summer sun and sand! If you’re looking forward to a family beach trip within coming months, here’s a round-up of brilliant beach hats to keep the whole family protected in style:


For Mums

If you’ve been looking for a gorgeous women’s sun hat – introduce yourself to the Mother Jugs hat from Goorin Bros. It just kills me! I love the fact that not only is it elegant and stylish, its made from Hemp/Cotton blend and is super soft so you can roll it up extra small and save on case space (or pop straight in your hand luggage).

The Goorin Bros’ Lucy design is lovely too. A classic Panama hat with UPF50+ protection and wide brim to provide plenty of shade.

For Dads

For a straw hat that men can work, this M&S double weave trilby is great for beach and city wear – a style I worked on when designing for M&S! Now available in a variety of colourways to give this traditionally inspired sun hat a modern twist.

For more from Goorin Bros, the mens’ hand-painted linen ‘Frenchmen’ baker boy is on trend and the ‘Take A Chill Pill’ straw pork pie beach hat is fab too – the floral print brim on the latter is a gorgeous spring touch. As featured on our cover.

For the teens

An iconic branded cap is always a nice option when you’ve got style conscious teens who want to be on point. I love the simple Nike swoosh cap or this 11 Degrees Trucker cap with mesh back detail which offers a slightly different take on this masculine staple.

For the dog

Yes, you read that right… When we said beach hats for the whole family, we even meant the dog! We came across the Machiko Summer Dog Hat recently and had to giggle – did anyone else know this was a thing? A cute option if you want to keep your pup well protected too. This clever hat has a visor to protect their eyes and ear holes to keep them comfy!



Do any of these hats scream the right match for someone in your family?
