Stylish Sun Hats with UPF Protection

Crisp linen fashion, sandals, and ice cream—yes, summer is here. Whether lounging on the beach or enjoying a round of golf, it is vital to protect yourself from extreme sun exposure that can lead to hyperpigmentation and other skin issues. One of our favourite solutions is throwing on a stylish sun hat.

Nobody wants to feel the burn after a pleasant afternoon in the sunshine. Besides applying sunscreen and staying hydrated, clothing is a practical solution. While any hat offers some degree of protection, you might not know some sun hats feature a UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) for extra protection from harmful UVA and UVB rays. This season, the discerning shoppers at Roxann’s Hats have curated several surprisingly stylish pieces from the Wallaroo Hat Company.

For those not in the know, from its inception, Wallaroo’s mission has been to help eliminate the threat of skin cancer through information and prevention. Their entire collection of UPF sun hats for men and women are tested and assigned a UPF rating from 15 to 50+. Like SPF, the higher, the better. If cancer is a concern, the Skin Cancer Foundation recommends clothing of at least UPF 30.

Our team is dedicated to impeccable service and style. For 2022, our team has curated what we think will be the top picks for men and women. We even included a couple of unisex styles sure to be highly coveted by fashion-forward partners, so hold on to your hat.

Logan Sun Hat for Men


Perfect for long treks in the hot sun, the Logan Men's Hat offers 50+ UPF protection. A convenient chin strap makes the Logan practical for breezy mountain peaks, but it works just as well for a sunny snooze in the backyard hammock. Finished with faux leather and a wide brim for a look that is both rugged and polished.

The Palm Beach Fedora for Everyone


Play it safe with this sophisticated unisex style. Made of flexible polyester, the hat folds up taco style to fit your suitcase. More important, the UPF 50+ fabric blocks 97.5% of ultraviolet rays, according to the Australian Radiation Protection Agency. For vacays and sunny days, this coveted wardrobe MVP looks fantastic on men and women.

Darby Cloche for Women


If there was a hat invented for barefoot walks on the beach, this is it. Wallaroo’s Darby puts a modern twist on the vintage cloche. Crafted from polypropylene, the UPF 50+ fabric blocks 97.5% of ultraviolet rays and transitions effortlessly from day to night thanks to sophisticated styling. 

Victoria Sun Hat for Women


Perfect for the woman who wants a bit more colour in her life, this hat is your BFF for gardening, hiking, and golf. Crafted from a light and breathable poly-straw that blocks harmful ultraviolet rays, it’s a stylish way to help keep sensitive skin protected and healthy. Available in gorgeous shades like hot pink, French navy, and deep lilac.

Justin Fedora for Everyone


An impeccably styled fedora for men and women, Justin features a classic wide band and internal drawstring for an adjustable fit. Fully collapsible, it fits easily into a travel case and wardrobe thanks to clean, classic lines that look fantastic when paired with sleek ensembles.
