For modern women who either want to put their niqabs and hijabs away or simply desire to stay out of the sun as much as possible, the Sunblock Hat is an ideal solution, albeit a strange one. It is an extended denim bucket hat that leaves a slit for the eyes so that the wearer can still see while covering the rest of the face. As though something out of a cartoon, the Sunblock Hat is clearly geared towards people who want to avoid skin damage or uneven tans.

Designed by A. Halford, designer for up-and-coming label 69, the Sunblock Hat is a gender-neutral headwear that "keeps his/her identity meticulously mysterious," according to OC. Refinery 29 gives six hilarious reasons to adopt the Sunblock Hat including, "You're one half of Daft Punk, and it's spring break."
