Some weather deserves a hat.
I hate hats ... but I'll admit my hatred diminishes with the thermometer.
In my life, a straw cowboy hat shades me in the summer. It's needful as i'm susceptible to heat stroke. And in winter a felt cowboy hat is my handsfree umbrella while doing chores. It sheds rain and snow away from my collar and keeps me significantly warmer. Nothin' fashionable about it, only worn as needed.
