Best Bet: Straw Hats
If there's one thing that can elevate a Spring outfit, it's a straw hat.
Over the years I've accumulated quite the collection. Janessa Leone is one of my favorite designers—and that's because she just gets it. She has a carefully curated selection of classic toppers with chic, of-the-moment details. The moment you put one on, you feel instantly cooler. I'm dying to check out her Los Angeles showroom, The Edit, but until then, I shop her selection online. I find them to be true-to-size, but measure the circumference of your head for the best fit.
Other brands I love include Rag and Bone, Indego Africa and Hat Attack. But my best tip? I often hit up the Goodwill or vintage stores to find lived-in, one-of-a-kind pieces that I use in our home decor. Most beach towns will have some good ones to choose from.
