Recently women’s wear has embraced this masculine accent and made it a new standard for both day and evening. The similarly shaped fedora was conversely a staple women’s wear item until men began to incorporate this style into their wardrobes as a highly fashionable addition.
Fedoras are traditionally made in felt, but are available in straw as a cooler alternative.
Hats are the perfect fix for days when humidity has made your hair hopelessly unruly, when you want to go fabulously from the pool to dinner or need to jazz up an otherwise dull ensemble.
A Panama hat or just Panama is a traditional brimmed hat made from the plaited leaves of the toquilla straw plant. Straw hats woven in Ecuador, like many other 19th and early 20th century South American goods, were shipped first to the Isthmus of Panama before sailing for their destinations in Asia, the rest of the Americas and Europe. For some products, the name of their point of international sale rather than their place of domestic origin stuck, hence “Panama hats.”
