Yes I love jewelry…purses are nice too…but my favorite accessory is a lovely, wide-brimmed hat! It can make me feel a little like Carmen San Diego, but what makes me love wearing hats the most is the added sun protection for my face, scalp and décolletage.
Below are a few of my favorite styles. Of course a baseball cap is better than nothing, but the bigger the brim, the better the skin!
#1 ASOS COLLECTION
Neutral colors that can go with anything…and straw you can wipe clean? Perfect around my kiddos
This London company has been making hats since 1773, so they must be doing something right! I love the texture of the straw, looks sturdy.
#3 JANESSA LEONE
Ever since Jessica Alba was caught wearing this hat, it has been hard to track down. You can find other Janessa Leone hats on Nordstroms.com, I particularly like this style because it has a nice feminine touch to a usually masculine Panama style
Top off your outfit with a punch of Indigo-this hat is made in Australia by Seafolly, a company which has made summer the epicenter of their image since 1975.
#5 RIVER ISLAND
Detail. DETAIL! I love the chain tassel and the pattern on the brim.
For those who like a more structured brim, this hat by Brixton is a cool choice. Comes in different sizes, unisex.
#7 ASOS COLLECTION
Another hat by ASOS, this one is particularly fabulous because the colors would be great to wear during my family 4th of July celebration in Newport. Enough red white and blue to feel patriotic, but the colors are subtle enough that the hat can be worn year round. The brim size is dreamy!
Absolute classic. Catarzi is an Italian-Based hat company that has ben a family run operation since 1910. I am a big fan of established companies that are known for their craftsmanship
