Summer hats with wide brims

Check the full range of rollable wide-brim hats for women with favourites like Tara, Melina, Anna, Cien and Joanna. If you prefer a hat with a firm shape, we advise Deborah, Grace or Jacqueline and the new styleScarlet. Most Bronté summer wide-brim hats for women come with a size-adjustable system.

Rollable wide brimmed hats, easy when you travel! Women appreciate wide-brim hats by Bronté for the flexibility of the superfine braided straw. A braided straw makes summer hats less delicate than Panama straw hats. Most braided straw hats are rollable and therefore very suitable as travel hats.
Winter hats with wide brims You will find wide-brimmed hats in luxurious hair or wool felt in the Bronté winter collection. You can wear the hair felt and wool felt hat on a rainy or snowy day. The fur's velvet touch and glow felt will be a joy for many years. Wool felt is usually more robust and firm in feel. We advise you not to wear any light-coloured hair or wool felt in the rain, as the rain drops could be dirty and cause it impossible to remove stains. You will not have this problem with felt hats in dark colours. Wide-brim winter hats require a coat with a relatively short collar to avoid a collision between the hat and collar.
Hat styles You will notice that the hat's crown determines the character of the hat style: do you want a masculine fedora crown? The Frederique and Clara hats are two examples of a wide-brimmed fedora hat in wool felt. Both styles have a shorter brim in the front compared to the back. Or do you prefer the feminine round hat dome with a floppy look of the seventies? The Sue hat style is a capeline or round domed hat with a wide brim. A more dramatic hat style is the Audreyshape: Audrey Hepburn's unforgettable performance in Breakfast at Tiffany inspired this lampshade or bell shape hat: a relatively small rounded dome combined with a broad and rounded brim.
