When we go on a trip, we want everything to be in its absolute best. We meticulously prepare everything — even our travel ensembles. But choosing pieces to pack can be quite tricky. It’s hard to switch up your outfits and find accessories to match your destinations and activities. One thing you can do is to accessorise with pieces from trusty hat brands to enjoy your mid-summer adventures while minimising the sun’s harmful effects. To help with that, here’s a list of hats you can bring depending on your trip.
Cross-country road trip
Adidas meets Fiorucci visor, price unavailable (catch them online and at Adidas Pacific Plaza on 10 May)
If you decide to embark on a road trip, then a laidback and comfortable outfit is your go-to. You might think it’s unnecessary to wear a hat when you’re probably going to spend the whole time inside the car, but that’s where you’re wrong. While the roof protects your crown from the sun’s heat, your eyes are still left vulnerable to its brightness. So opt for a funky visor to shade your eyes from the blinding light like this piece from Adidas Meets Fiorucci.

There’s no better way to enjoy the season than going island hopping. While discovering white-sand shores, beat the heat by carrying along your trusty woven hat with you. Choose one like ZARA’s Raffia shell hat. With its shell embellishments, you couldn’t be more in tune with the hot tropical vibe.
Loro Piana Ingrid Multistripes hat, price unavailable
When you go sightseeing around the city, you might want something a bit simpler, something not too huge that would disturb other tourists. If that’s the case, then maybe a straw fedora hat would be what you need for that classic chic look. A lot of hat brands offer the style, but you’ll never go wrong with the elegance of Loro Piana’s Ingrid Multistripes hat.

Enriching heritage tour
