As a lady with fair skin, I’m constantly thinking about how to protect myself from the sun. I love the summer – sundresses and shorts are some of my favorite things. But as we wear less, we are more subject to the sun’s harmful – if warm and lovely – rays.
The answer? Sun hats.
And what better way to make a stylish statement than with this Eugenia Kim red wide-brimmed sun hat from Anthropologie? Kim, an accessories designer who won a CFDA award in 2004, created the line Genie by Eugenia Kim to offer beautiful, affordable hats that maintain her signature quirky style. This hat, among many others, can be found in stores across the US and online.
Floppy sun hats are usually made of straw or paper, but this one is made with hemp and cotton with a leather and brass band. Plus, it can be worn in a number of different ways. Imagine sitting on the beach, reading a book with this beauty to keep the sun out of your eyes. Or heading to brunch in a cute dress and sandals with your floppy hat to elegantly top off the look. Sounds like the perfect outfit to me!
