Sunglasses Straw Hat


A couple of weeks ago I popped into a Kate Spade store in Orange County and spotted this super cute straw hat with embedded sunglasses.  It seemed like the perfect beach side accessory.  No longer would a girl have to choose between people watching or covering her face from the sun.  Finally she could do both - and still look stylish.

I had all but forgotten about the hat when I came across a very similar vintage hat.  Looks like the women of the 60s could have been wearing a version of this hat as well.

 The colors have definitely been toned down since the 60s, but the idea's the same.  If you're wearing a sunglasses straw hat you're not looking to blend in, so might as well go for the bright colors.  What do you think?
