Straw HatThe Headwear Association wants you to be sun smart on the beach this summer, so it's dubbed today, Friday June 17, Hat Day in the Sun. To celebrate, the organization will hand out wide-brimmed hats in a variety of American locations.

These hats were chosen to offer maximum protection to the face, neck, eyes, and ears. The association suggests women should follow the "more skin, more brim" rule, and increase the size of the hat's brim when their swimsuit becomes skimpier! A hat with a brim of more than five inches can offer extra protection for shoulders and necks, not to mention looking fabulous!

But it's not all about the brim. The Headwear Association also suggests looking at the hat's Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) rating, which indicates how much of the sun's powerful UV rays are absorbed by the hat's material. The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends choosing a hat with a UPF rating of at least 30, but 50 is better!

Look out for The Headwear Association volunteers in pop-up locations around New York City, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Lancaster, Charleston, Long Branch, Stockton, Boulder, and Detroit. You can see a complete list of times and locations at The Headwear Association official website and Twitter page.
