The sun is finally out and for many Spring break has begun…which means tropical vacations and long days at the beach.
The trend in hats this Spring/Summer 2011 is anything straw! We love the wide variety of color and styles this season and recommend buying at least two; one classic and one more trendy just for fun.
When looking to buy a classic straw hat, look for a well-made tight weave that is not too floppy- it will last much longer and hold it’s shape. If your hat does lose it’s shape over time give this reshaping trick a try: 1)pour boiling water over hat in a large sink or basin, 2)reshape, 3)then let dry.
Have fun in the sun!
