I'll say it again: size matters. Put that cute little hat with its bitsy brim away (you know who you are) -- it's useless as sun defense. Get this Joe Fresh straw hat instead -- it'll be the best anti-aging $9 you'll spend this summer.
Simple and chic, this topper has a brilliant, not-too-floppy big brim that shades the whole face and back of neck. Such generous under-brim shadow is also perfect for quality Kobo-time in the backyard or on the balcony -- it'll provide shade for your vulnerable dÃ©colletÃ©, too. (I used the flash in the opening shot so the contrast between sun and shade would be less stark, but you get the idea, yes?)
I love this wheat colour; a snappy navy-stripe version ($14) is also available.
If you can't snag exactly this sun hat, just remember when you shop: you absolutely need at least six inches. Good to have for the long weekend.
