The ultimate single girl, Samantha Jones, rocked one numerous times in the first Sex and the City movie. Although it may take a little attitude to pull off, this hat adds some fun to a sunny day.

For a more retro vibe, another popular style is the fedora. Slightly sleekier than Ms. Jones’s hat, the styles up a beachy look.
