This week: I am planning a vacation by the beach and I would really like to have a glamorous sun hat to take with me. Any ideas? – Teresa
Hi Teresa. First, kudos to you for packing a hat—for sun protection, this is a must! Second, we love that you are willing to go for a glamorous look. On that note, we think San Diego Hat Company’s Paperbraid Striped Sun Hat ($58) would be a great addition to your suitcase. Not only will it spice up your outfit, but it will add a pop of color and plenty of protection. We also love Kate Spade New York’s Sun Hat ($78)—it has a nautical-chic vibe—and Mint by Goorin’s Striped Sun Hat ($20). The best part about all three of these picks is that you can choose from a slew of colors, so make sure to pick one that suits the majority of your outfits. Happy shopping!
