Grab the sun tan lotion, towels, and 2-piece bathing suits; it’s beach time! We all know between mid-July and mid-August is one of the hottest times of the year, so if you’re headed to the beach to cool off, why not do it in style? Grab only the hottest most fashionable beach hats for your trip.
Here’s a sample of just a few of the beach hats for women that we offer (If you don’t find one you like, check the rest of our women’s beach hats out):Women's Beach Hats

1. This beach hat perfect for blocking out the sun, while camouflaging with the sand all at the same time. Time to finally tan in peace…and style. This poly-braid hat is durable and even comes with a grosgrain sweatband inside. Check it out!


2. For those who don’t want a beach hat that grabs all the attention, but still protects you from the sun, I give you a women’s straw hat! If you like the look of plain straw hats, this is the hat for you. It’s sturdy and crushable, which you don’t find in your average straw hat! This means you can pack it up with your umbrella in the same case for easy storage when you want to swim without it blowing away with the wind (or growing legs and walking away). Check it out!

3. This beach hat comes in 3 different colors: black, white, and wheat (yeah, wheat is a color). The durable and stylish straw braid swinger hat is made of 100% paper, this hat is ideal for keeping the sun out of your eyes with its flexible brim. Really, this hat is a bargain since it can double for a traveling hat. Check it out!

4. Christine A. Moore Millinery hats make for some super-stylish beach hats! Made of durable panama, this hat is ideal for the beach. If your luck is as good as mine, it will rain the moment you get settled in at the beach. If so, you’re in luck: this beach hat is made of panama, which is resistant to light rain (and splashes from the ocean). Check it out!

5. Here comes the brimless beach hats. Tired of those brims getting in the way of your view of the ocean? Try out this cotton bucket hat. Style without the brim, you’ll be ready for running along the beach without it flying away. Made of 100% cotton, it’s lightweight and has a fashionable rope band. Check it out!

Snapback vs. Fitted Hats

There are hundreds of different types of hats! Just stop and think: how many hats can you think of off the top of your head (no pun intended)? Caps, beanies, straw hats, fedoras, pork pies, westerns, and so on. But a lot of times these are broad categories. For example, caps can include baseball caps, berets, yacht caps, newsboy caps, etc. How can someone keep track of the different types of hats when there’s so many? You don’t…that’s why you have Hats in the Belfry! We’re here to keep things in order, so if you ever have any questions feel free to ask us what the difference is between the various hats in our online hat store. For now, let’s look at the snapbacks and fitted hats. What’s the difference between snapback and fitted?

Snapback and Fitted Capskangol ventair space - fitted hat

For starters, snapbacks and fitted hats are both caps. If you own a baseball cap, grab it and look at it. If not, use this one as an example: Kangol Ventair Space.

This is an example of a fitted hat because of the back of the hat. It is, as its name suggests, fitted to your match your head. When you buy one of these, you should have your head measured to know what size hat will most comfortably fit. For some, this is the preferred of the two (snapback/fitted) because they know it will fit them perfectly and the back of their head will not itch as it would with a snapback. This brings us to snapbacks and strapbacks, the all-in-one of hats. When you buy a snapback/strapback, they will have various sizing strap-in (or snap-in) locations. A strapback hat’s back looks like this:belfry-luton-strapback

Snapbacks or Fitted?

When buying a baseball cap, you have to choose between snapbacks, fitted, and strapbacks (snapbacks, but with a strap instead of snaps). A snapback hat can be worn on multiple people because of the quick, easy adjustments you can make with them. A fitted hat, however, is (as the name suggests) fitted to your head. These hats are meant to be worn by you specifically. We recommend fitted hats because when worn, the hat is snug, but comfortable. Fitted hats can also be worn forwards or backwards, depending on your style. Wearing a snapback backwards would result in your forehead touching the plastic material, which is not comfortable for any period of time. Snapback hats used to be the most popular because of the various designs, but fitted hats have since caught up in the trends.

To buy a fitted hat or strapback hat, use your head and browse our selection of men’s baseball caps or our selection of women’s caps.
