When it comes to holiday accessories, there are a few that take top priority on the packing list. Some summery sandals, a pair of chic shades and of course, a hat. Holidaying in the South of France meant we were graced each day with glorious sunshine that warmed the skin and curved the smiles of everyone within its reach. However, with the scorching heat comes a dilemma. What to wear when it’s so hot? How can you look sun-kissed without burning the tan lines? Well, the answer to this dilemma can be found in the perfect hat.
Despite the fact it is not the best suitcase-proof accessory, the hat serves as the perfect holiday accompaniment, acting as a sun shield whilst keeping your image trendy and polished. The promenades in Cannes see women donning the different styles of hat, demonstrating its practicality as well as it’s glamour. The favourite this summer in the south of France was the oversized floppy hat. Shading the shoulders, this style of hat is the peak of elegance.
Seen on some of our favourite style icons today, the classic style harkens back to everyone from classic screen sirens to hippie chicks. Vanessa Hudgens, Blake Lively and Kim Kardashian are the ladies to look to for guidance on how to wear the floppy hat, and Cannes is the place to wear it.
