Hats Off to Panama!

The Panama Hat. This is the "it" accessory in men's fashion this summer. Designers and stylists can't get enough! (There was some foreshadowing of this with the Marc Jacobs photo in the Get it in Print post a couple weeks ago.)

This past week, Jay Z and his lovely Beyonce were spotted vacationing in Cuba, and their trip caused a lot of stir in the press! But all I noticed was his hat. Right on trend.

On the SS13 runway, models from lines as funky as Moschino to the ever classy Brioni donned this topper.
 I chose these three photos on purpose so you can see the versatility of this accessory. Jay Z is uber casual, Moschino kicks things up a notch with a business casual chino and sweater, and Brioni pairs their hat with a jacket and trouser (and some pretty awesome shoes).

Where can you get one?

Panador Hats makes this classic version that is sure to pair with anything.  Stick with an off white or natural straw to maximize versatility and timelessness.

Feeling a little more funky? Good! Branch out in this great style from Bailey Hats that adds a pattern to make this variation extra fashionable this season.
