Woven sun hats are definitely a summer staple. It shields your head and eyes from the sun, and it ties together any breezy outfit. As classic as this piece is, it can always be improved. French designer Simon Porte Jacquemus did just that with the La Chapeau Bomba hat. It is made of 100 percent straw and has an exaggerated oversized brim. Not only will this protect your entire body from the sun but you’ll look runway ready too.
You’ve probably seen photos and videos of models wearing the hat. The brim is so wide that it even covers part of their bodies.
Not only is this a statement piece, but it is also a great way to hide from people during the summer. Jokes aside, we wanted to find other options as well. The hats that we find also have oversized brims but are more wearable for the city and island girls.
