22 Stylish Ways to Avoid the Sun’s Rays

Want to look smokin’ hot this summer while still covering up from harsh UV rays? We’ve rounded up several warm weather trends that will have you feeling both fabulous and protected. No need to sacrifice style for practicality here. Whether you’re tossing on a classic straw hat or wrapping up in a silky robe, these runway trends have you covered.

Get creative this summer when covering up in the season’s hottest sunglasses. There are tons of new twists and modernized classics to enjoy during the summer months. You can disco your way into Dolce & Gabbana’s super groovy glitter-acetate sunglasses or wear Kaleos’ iconic cat-eye sunglasses to evoke an old-school Hollywood Audrey Hepburn look. Geometric shapes and sunglasses in every color of the rainbow are two other huge trends to look for. To top off your look, you can opt for another key runway look to stay out of the sun: hats. Try a Fenty Puma by Rihanna baseball cap with a big mesh bow in the back or one of many classic styles like a straw hat with frayed edges or a wide-brimmed nautical hat for a more glamorous Hamptons look.

To protect your body from harsh rays, silky pajama robes double as beach cover-ups. There are many different takes on this trend, from Off-White’s standard-issue white-trimmed maxi-length pajama robe to Saktuk and Victoria’s exotic Balinese printed kimono robe. For something a little more conventional, you can opt for a stylish caftan to channel a resort-inspired look. Click through for more chic ways to shield yourself from the sun.
