Trend On The Cheap: Get Shady With 12 Sun Hats Under $50

If you think you're not a hat person, ask yourself: Are you sure? With temperatures rising above 90 in most parts of the country this week—and with hats on practically every designer's brain, thanks to a certain royal wedding—now is a great time to consider the merits of a summer topper. May we suggest then, a round up of our 12 favorite sun hats—all for less than $50—to keep the rays at bay. Some of our picks have compact brims that keep the sun out of your eyes, like the polka-dot crown trilby from Accessorize. Others, like Pixie Market's super wide brimmed straw number, offer a wider swath of sweet shade. In all cases, your skin, and your wallet, will thank you.—Julie Chen
