The sun is shining and the heat has cranked up, but as much as we love being in the glorious sunshine, we’re all about protecting our skin from those harmful UV rays. The heat in HK can get a little overwhelming at times, and if you’re out and about it’s always better to be sun safe! One stylish way to stay cool? By wearing a hat! Keep those rays off your face and give your peepers some shade.
Classic and easy to pair with any outfit, you can’t go wrong with a Panama hat. Originally made from straw, the Panama hat is lightweight and breathable, keeping your head cool in the HK heat! It looks great with simple, sophisticated clothing and is ideal for warm climates… we love the way our former That Girl Geneva of A Pair And A Spare wears hers with clothes from one of our our favourite Hong Kong-based brands, Grana.
Available on Shopbop here for $932.
