J.Crew Panama Hat

I’m all about hats. My fashion mentality – if there’s an outfit to be had, there’s a hat to go with it. If’ always just loved a good hat! I just added a J.Crew Panama Hat to my collection this season. I’ve never had one before. I have a ton of straw fedoras (as you know if you follow me!), but never a Panama.

Panama hats are light-colored, lightweight, and breathable, and often worn as acessories to summer-weight suits, such as those made of linen or silk. Beginning around the turn of the 20th century, panamas began to be associated with the seaside and tropical locales.

I found the perfect one at J.Crew last week for $24.99, so I scooped it up ASAP! You don’t need to spend an arm and a long on one! I loved the price and I loved the style! ♥

How does one wear a J. Crew Panama Hat?

I love a relaxed style with a hat. A hat is such a “chill” accessory to add to any look, so I always love my outfit to reflect that same kinda vibe. Since it’s the summer (or close to the official kick off date!), I’m into wearing lightweight tanks right now with jeans. It’s not super hot here in Rhode Island (yet), so I’m soaking up the 70 degree heat as best as I can!

I love that I can wear this hat with ease and love feeling chic and gorgeous in it, too! I’m all about wearing my J.Crew Panama Hat to the beach, but I love wearing it out and about too. I love that I can easily dress it up and down. I love that it just works in a variety of different ways and styles. It’s just such a spring and summer staple. I love mine so much and I wear it as much as I can now, too!
