A sunhat’s main function might be, in theory, to shield your eyes from the sun.
But over the years, they have really just become a fashionable accessory.
Sure, they still serve their purpose, but what’s really important is their appearance.
Nobody wants an ugly sunhat. Nobody.
There are so many different styles out there now, I have no doubt there is something for everybody.
Just like in The Sims community. It’s a beautiful thing, the way players have come together to share their talents, so there really is CC for everyone.
Below you’ll find some of the best sunhats this lovely fandom has to offer – and they sure are wonderful!
As they say, bigger is better!
There’s enough room under this hat to protect the whole family from the sun.
This is like a natural personal space enforcer, since no one would dare go beneath someone else’s enormous hat without permission.
Ah, who am I kidding? These are Sims!
They’ll still get all up in your face and smile while they do it.
But still, such a unique CAS item is hard to pass up.
I’d say the creator, Reitanna, is pretty genius. I see now that this has been missing from my game all along.
Sunhat with Roses
Adding flowers to something is the fastest way to improve it.
Too much space in your yard? Plant flowers!
New piece of wood furniture seems a little plain? Stencil flowers!
Old blue jeans looking a little too old? Embroider flowers!
You get the idea. They’re just some of the prettiest and most varied things in nature, and that’s the very reason they are so appealing.
This hat perfectly showcases what makes flowers so lovely.
The creator just added a few roses to the band of the base game sunhat, and would you look at that? The hat is so fresh now.
As if this CC isn’t already great enough, the roses come in 12 colors!
Most of the time, when someone talks about a sunhat, you probably envision some sort of straw or mesh thing.
Those can certainly be nice, but there’s no reason such a common type of hat can’t see more innovation.
There’s no law stating what they must be made of, obviously.
Zuckerschnute20 has created a great example of the creativity that can be brought to these hats. This design features a glittery effect against white and yellow.
The results sure are pretty, making this hat a nice choice for spring outfits and formal ones alike.
Ladies Woven Sunhat w/ Animal Print Hatband
As nice as it is to try new things, there’s a reason the classics hold up.
This sunhat from Shylaria has the timeless woven texture, as well as another classic – animal print!
The band is also available in six different patterns: leopard, cougar, tiger, zebra, cheetah, and giraffe.
Yes, even giraffe print!
Now I’m wondering why everyone’s favorite tallest, hoofed mammal has been left out from animal print fashion so long. Their spots look just as lovely as all the other critters.
Creator kardofe has again breathed new life into the base game sun hat with these recolors.
Honestly, these are so pretty and new, I think “recolors” is downplaying things a little bit.
This is a total upcycling!
These hats have a floral design as well as a lacy pattern in place of a hat band and around the brim.
Each one has a different flower on the band, so really this is like 4 hats in one. And they’re all gorgeous.
I just love how much of a spring feel these have. Perfect for Love Day!
Sunhats tend to bring warm weather vibes.
You don’t usually see people wearing them with parkas, ya know?
This is one accessory that is best suited to a certain time of year, so you’ll want to make the best of it while you can.
If you have Seasons, I’m sure you can relate.
There’s so much fun stuff to do, it can feel like there is never enough time to get to it all, or have your Sim dressed right while you do it.
But these hats are indeed perfect for summer.
Whether your Sim just plans to chill in the backyard, suck up to the neighbor to use their pool, or hit the roller rink, you can’t beat a sunhat when it comes to a laid back, casual look.
What A Flop Hat Recolors
At a glance, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with the base game sunhat.
In fact, most of the creations on this list are just built off of those.
They’re sufficiently sunhat-like, so unless you’re looking for something specific like new detailing, what more could you want?
More swatches, of course!
After looking at the same ones for years and years now, I’ve grown a little tired of them.
Luckily, this is where CC comes in.
This Simmer has really made those old hats look good as new with these recolors. There are 20 new swatches here, including plenty of fun and bright colors.
Sunhat For Children
Is it fair that children are the only life stage without a sunhat? I think not.
Okay, I think what the toddlers have is technically a bucket hat. But with that wonky brim it’s hard to tell, so we’ll just say it’s a sunhat.
Which brings me back to my original point: Sims 4 children are deprived of hats.
They have a super limited selection, and that’s just not cool. Kids need accessories too!
This creator has just downsized the adult sunhat and made it available for children.
While it may be simple, it’s very sensible.
In real life, most kid’s stuff is just smaller versions of adult items.
Like they say, art imitates life.
