Whether you’re traveling for business or pleasure, achieving that ultra-cosmopolitan jetsetter look is a must for ensuring that you disembark looking fresh and fashionable. Ladies love a good-looking floppy brim hat for long flights because they double as a style accessory and an in-flight sun- and light-blocker (seriously) so choose this option if you want to sleep until landing. Men might choose a classic travel hat — like the globetrotter’s favorite Stetson Stratoliner with a cool airplane pin — or something more comfortable and laid-back, like a bucket hat or ivy cap.
Hats in the Belfry’s Travel-Friendly Hat Tips:
• Choose rollable, packable hats. These hats are designed to bounce back to their original shape and structure, even after being stored in your luggage for a lengthy red-eye.
• Pack weather-resistant hats. Rather than trying to jam in several climate-specific caps in your suitcase, select a sun-and-rain-hat in one, like a weather-proof safari hat or bucket hat.
• Go with versatile colors. Save space when you choose a tan, white or black hat that goes with a variety of different looks and outfits.
