Hot hatsto keep cool

This contrasting trim straw hat by Echo is $53 on zappos.com.

Celebrate summer fashion by dressing for the sun. If your cool dip involves a beach chair and the latest Vogue magazine, building sand castles with your little ones by the sea or lounging poolside with an iPad in hand, there is one more accessory you shouldn’t leave behind: a sun hat.

Protection from the sun has become a fashion frenzy this season, and sun hats are the fastest growing trend that also keeps you cool. The floppy style that you’ve seen on celebrities is hotter than ever.

Transition this sun-shielding weekend-wear to casual street-style with a fabulous maxi dress or a high-waist short to keep the look edgy all summer long.
