As the temperature starts to rise and the days grow longer the need for protection against UV rays becomes more necessary. While it’s great to hang out in the sun and enjoy the vitamin D it is important to protect your skin from sun damage. Sunscreen is the best method to protect your skin but adding another layer of protection never hurt anyone. Especially when the second option can tie your outfit together or is the main focal point of your outfits, such as hats can be. So let’s take a look at some of the options we have to offer at our 2nd Street location in Costa Mesa.
The Miami Beach LogoThe first option we have is a white cloth snap back featuring a purple Miami Beach logo. This hat would go great with an all white tennis outfit and would provide a little bit of color due to the logo. This hat would be at home paired with an outfit that involves any outdoor activity. It’s the type of hat that pairs well with adventure and boldness just like the city of Miami Beach embodies. The light stains on this hat show it has a story and a history of being used to explore, which only adds to the overall mood the hat sets.
The Sailor StyleThis next option is a classic hat for this area in particular. While these hats do get reinvented every few years, this sailor style hat has always been common for southern coastal cities and has been popularized by companies like Brixton. Especially in cities like Costa Mesa, there are no shortages of people wearing this style of hat. And what’s not to love they are stylish, diverse, and are perfect for almost all seasons if you dress them properly. So get your beachy hat here and sail into some new looks.
The Classic SunFor the third option, we have a classic sun hat. This type of hat is perfect for a relaxing day at the beach. You’ll be able to hang out in the sun all day because you’ll have maximum protection from the sun and wind. But careful this hat doesn’t blow away as it’s super light weight because it’s made from a woven straw material. Again, perfect for those super hot days when you need protection from the sun but not the extra weight of a big hat.
The Mock Vintage Los Angeles Ebbet’s FieldThis next pick is a classic baseball hat with a few twists. This mock vintage Los Angeles Ebbet’s Field cap is based on an older design but brought to life through research and attention to historical accuracy. And let me tell you this felt hat is just as soft and vibrant as it looks. This hat also brings that nostalgic look into play by including a leather strap adjustment in the back. So whether you are a history buff or super into the Dodgers this hat is for you.
The Burberry VisorIf you are into tennis skirts or golf, man we have got a hat for you. This Burberry visor is perfect for a day's visit to the country club. Don’t belong to one, yeah me either but we can dream right. And hey, that’s why they have day passes. So get out there and pick an adventure! Serve the first ball in that doubles tennis match, make that hole in one, drink that amazing Bloody Mary, and you know whatever else people do at country clubs. Just make sure you don’t forget your visor.
The BucketNow, this bucket hat has style! It’s the perfect olive green color, however, it has a holographic and reflective quality to it, so the color changes depending on the light. This hat is begging to be taken to any crystal blue lake. It will protect you from the sun and keep you looking stylish while you float effortlessly through the water. This is the type of hat you can dip in the water to keep your head cool and not have to worry about it taking forever to dry due to the light weight material.
The BeanieFor my last pick, I decided to go in a different direction. This may not seem like the ideal summer hat for some, however, looks can be deceiving. The browns and tans in the hats coloring indicate the leaves are dead or have just fallen. In most areas, this beanie would be considered a summer hat due to the colors matching the landscape during the summertime. You would be unable to camouflage yourself in the winter as the leaves would be green and flourishing. So if you want to blend into your surroundings and have a successful hunting season (if that’s what you are into) this hat is for you.
So if you plan on having fun in the sun this summer maybe you’ll opt for a hat for additional coverage. Look no further because 2nd Street has got you covered.
