Foldable wide brim straw hat

Handy Hat

Not only is an oversized straw hat sexy and fashionable, it protects your scalp from the sun’s strong rays and hides uncontrollable hair. We particularly love this one as it’s foldable, so it’s easy to pack in your suitcase without damaging it. A little tip – customise your hat to complement your look by tying a ribbon or scarf around it. Very Monte Carlo…
