It's summer! It's finally time to sip drinks on the patio (yay!). It's prime growing season (don't forget to weed the tomato patch). And if you're anywhere like St. Louis, it's tricky to look put together when the temperature pushes three digits (boo). That's why we're here to help. We're back with styling tips for looking your best through the hottest time of the year. It's all about keeping the sun off, letting the breeze in, and never forgetting to look cool. Check out these hats sure to help you beat the heat in style.
#1 The Fashion Hat
For those old school guys who aren't dressed without a hat, or the guys who always put the extra touches on, there's never enough room in the wardrobe for great looking hats. These can make any suit a statement, or elevate a casual outfit. Take a look at:
A Classic Panama Fedora
Levine "Bogart" Authentic Panama Fedora
A teardrop crown fedora with a 2 1/2" brim to keep the sun off, the Bogart keeps you cool while radiating Hollywood elegance.
A Crushable Pork Pie
Bailey "Waits" Braid Straw Pork Pie
More casual than a fedora, the pork pie hat is known for fitting into smoky jazz clubs. Crushable straw means it's easy to pack for vacation and will still look great after lots of wear and tear.
#2 The Rough and Tumble Hat
It's not summer if you're not getting dirty somehow. From Appalachian camping trips to gardening in the suburbs, you'll need something to keep the sun off. When it comes to toughing it out, one hat stands out:
Tilley LTM6 Airflow Hat
With wide brims, air vents, and a 50+ UPF rating this Tilley hat is perfect for long hours out in the sun.
#3 The All-purpose Cap
Sometimes you don't want or need to look dressy, but can't go out empty-headed. The right cap can dress up a casual outfit, or round out a suit without looking out of place. Here's two caps to throw on when you head out the door:
Italian Linen Ivy Cap
Panizza "Panaro" Linen Ivy Cap
The Panaro has all the details that make a perfect upscale casual accessory. It's made of 100% linen, a breathable absorbent fabric, which means it wicks away the sweat and lets the breeze cool you off.
The Everyday Newsboy Cap
Broner "Mo' Money" Cotton Newsboy Cap
A classic newsboy cap, the Mo' Money comes in six colors and it's affordable enough to have one for every outfit.
