I picked up a Panama hat in while in Mexico (it was made in Ecuador, to add another layer) at a place that definitely doesn't have e-commerce, but this J. Crew option comes mighty close to my vacation find.
I love that the color is a nearly white straw hue, because all I want to wear this summer is black and white and the hat doesn't interfere. What it does do: keep my scalp from burning (cruel, cruel joke, Mother Nature) with a brim that's almost Theophilus London-sized. The end result is a mad flattering topper that keeps me sun-safe and looking cool.
