Caps may look cute and sporty, but if you really want to be sun smart on the beach you'll need a wide brimmed hat like this straw one from Spiegel.

While caps keep the sun from your face, this floppy straw hat will protect your ears and shoulders from harmful UVA and UVB rays. On a more superficial level, it also looks gorgeous with its natural toned woven straw and stylish leather band. It's a simple design, but a classic one which has been adopted by stars like Fergie and Sienna Miller. In fact, the Black Eyed Peas singer has even been spotted wearing hers in the airport, so don't be afraid to wear yours away from the shore.

Floppy wide brimmed hats like this flatter most face shapes and outfits. The gentle way the brim falls softens the face, while the muted natural tone won't look too busy next to a printed swimsuit. However, they're not for everyone. Petite girls tend to get lost under such a large hat, and would be better served with something much smaller.

This Spiegel sunhat also isn't as convenient as a cap or similar fabric hats. While these styles will happily sit inside your beach bag, the brittle straw will suffer if you stash it away. You can wear it while you walk to the sand of course, but storage may become a problem when winter rolls around.

At least if the straw does suffer in storage this Spiegel hat doesn't cost too much to replace. At $29, it's an affordable way to keep the sunburn at bay.
