November 13, 2010 I live in Honolulu, Hawaii and I've seen all types of hats that women wear. Which one do you think looks best on a woman. A cowboy hat, a trucker hat or a fedora? Why did you make your choice.

I think one of those big straw hats look good. They are light weight, have wide brims to block the sun fro your eyes, and if you are sweaty...they do not get wet! And they are easier to accessorize with....lol

I agree. big straw hat is also beautiful for the girls that having sun bathing on the beach. It also look so cute. It also look elegant to the girl who wear it. I think big straw hut is also look like cowboy but its bigger and its made in different materials but i like it both.

Hello my friend gitfiddleplayer Ji, Well, in the year 2003, while shopping in Miami area, we purchased an Hat for our elder DIL, in a fashon and shape so that it must hide upper of her face so taht some sense of Indian custom and tradition prevails while wearing that hat. Keep Smiling. May God bless You and have a great time.

Thanks, glad you are still here! Yes, a hat that keeps the sun out of your eyes and off your face is very good to have.

Hello my friend gitfiddleplayer Ji, So nice of your sincere remembering me.But by the way, where did you expect me to be there. I have no other place other than remaining here.But due to many counts, I was little out of touch with you all, as keenly observed by you. Still we have that hat. In fact when my hubby vivited Niagra, he brought those two apron used to save from water, when we go into the Jatti , where water is falling. he still is having preserved as a great rememberence. You are so licky to find some time to spend this way, which is hardly noticed these days due to very busy schedule. Take care. May God bless You and have a great time.

There are so many different kinds. I think the bigger floppy ones are cute. Or the more nautical one with the bill to keep the sun out of your eyes. Cowboy hat? Too retro. Fedora. What a statement to make at the beach! A trucker hat is so male for a woman in a suit. Ya, I'd go with the floppy one for sure.

I guess it depends on the girl at the beach, I don't think I would see a young woman in a big floppy hat.

Okay. Why are you wearing this hat anyway? I like the big floppy because it covers more territory. The baseball cap just covers your eyes.

it looks beautiful for me when i'm seeing girls wearing cowboy hat with a beautiful bikini. It look so elegant to my eyes and i think it also help to add more good looks in the girl that wearing it. I want to wear that kind of attire when i have swimming but i can't wear it because i'm too fat..

I think that on a tropical beach it is best for a lady to wear a cotton on that is wide brimmed. It would keep the sun light off her face and stop her head getting sunburned. I would most likely be beige and have a string around the neck so on a windy day the hat doesn't fly off. One of my friends had a hat on and it fell in a lake. I made my choice through of experience of traveling to tropical beaches. In Northern Australia they have hats with corks round them or a net. That is because of the insects. I have traveled to St Lucia, Hawaii, Fiji, islands of the Great Barrier Reef, the Cook Islands, French Polynesia, Samoa, the Maldives and the Seychelles. I like a hat to fold and put in my backpack for storage.

I think different hats looks differently on different women. SOme are more suited to cowboy while some fedora. I guess cowboy hat does not really suit the majority of people because it needs certain face shape to blend in well with that hat. If not, it will elongate the women's face.. haha =D While fedora hat should be more popular because alot of people are wearing it there. hehe

How about a good ole' baseball cap. They come in lots of colors. And with a ponytail? Well I think it's pretty classic.

I may not be convinced that the type of hat worn is important for how good a woman looks. So maybe you should just wear whatever is practical and best serves your purpose.

Hi gitfiddleplayer, the main purpose for me to put on a hat at the beach is to prevent my face complexion from getting the disgusting sunburn. Therefore I alway put on straw hat. Here in the tropical region where live, the weather is severe hot in sunny day. Worse still it's along the beach. So the well designed straw hat with bigger side surrounded, is the best hat for me to protect the head from the scorching sun and against sunstroke as well. Other than the traditional type of straw hats, there are many local made straw hats are newfashioned and stylish. I'm not picky in choosing hat, what attracts me most is it works well to protect my me from getting suntan and to look decent as well when wearing it at the beach Happy posting

I've seen some local hats that have scarfs tied on them for a Hawaiian flare.

I live in Florida and when I go to the beach I wear my cowboy hat...Toby Keith style. It's lightweight and keeps the sun out of my eyes. Personally, though, I like those big, floppy hats but they don't go with pickup trucks and motorcycles.

gitfiddleplayer Hi here in the U S I have yet to see any women wearing a hat unless its a baseball type hat. I had never even thought of wearing a hat to the beach. i know I never have in my life. No fedoras that is silly or cowboy, no the only onew I have seen own a newpo9rt beach are just baseball caps. we use sunscreen and he whole idea of going to the beach is to wear casual play clothes no hats a all. that might do for church but not on the beach

Hawaii is a little different, there are a lot of Asian women here who either tan or burst into flames.

Any man that would even notice what kind of a hat a woman had on at the beach has a problem he needs to work on. :-) Art

Hey Art, I was just doing a study. Once you've been on the beach they all just blend in with the sand. :)

None of the above.....I think a big straw hat with a bunch of cool flowers or something looks best on a woman....for a man well I would say if they are bald anything.

I choose a cowboy hat because that would seem to give her more protection from the sun and I think sensible women look better than silly ones.

I agree, most of the time they bend the side up to make it more of a fashion statement than an actual hat for protection.

I think the cowboy hat looks best on a woman at the beach.Woman on the beach always looks sexy and beautiful.When they wear a cowboy hat,they look more sexy than before,i think.Cowboy is a represent of sexy and wild nature.

I think the Fedora would be the best just because it looks cool. And in my opinion trucker hats just make you look trashy and cowboy hats have nothing to do with Hawaii at all.

I've seen more guys wear Fedora's than girls but every now and then I see them being worn by a girl. The girls in front of me today had on trucker hats, I think that you're pretty accurate with that statement. Cowboy hats probably look better down south. Thanks tylerlou and welcome to myLot!

If you are going for a walk or jog wear baseball cap. If you are wearing a bating suit wear one of those big round brim hats!!

I think that it really depends on the woman and the hat. We're not all the same. We have different body types, and such, which is why I think that different hats will suit us. It just depends.
