Round Oversized Shades – Do you like to style it up and avoid the paparazzi by hiding under your oversized shades? Then these shades will help you get the job done! These shades are very reminiscent of the Paris and Nicole era, and still just as trendy. When traveling they can be worn on the plane while sleeping (for that extra bit of privacy) or when arriving at the airport jet lagged and in serious need of hiding those dark rings. On the other hand, these are the perfect pair of shades to wear on the Riviera or strolling down Prince Street in Soho. These sunglasses have both round lenses and a round solid frame, with an orange and black animal print. The actual lenses are dark enough to cover your eyes, yet not pitch black, so more enjoyable on both sides of the lens. A great accessory for any stylish jet setting gal!Screen Shot 2017-12-17 at 2.09.16 am.jpgPanama Wide Brim Raffia Fedora – This Panama style hat will be a hit next time you wear it down to your local cafe in St Tropez or to the hot salsa club on Miami’s pumping strip.

Around the base of the hat is a black grosgrain hatband with a flat bow for added style. The hat is made from paper straw, which is sure to be both cooling, scratch-free, and light to wear. This hat can be taken to just about any summer event or location, and will easily sit on your carry-on to avoid being squashed.Screen Shot 2017-12-17 at 2.08.51 am.jpg


Black and White Linen Fedora – This Havana style hat will be a hit next time you wear it out to that local beach party or as an accessory while you salsa to your favorite Latin tune. Made as the authentic Fedoras are made, with a short brim and a black band around the crown. This fedora also has a black matching band around the brim for that added suave style. The hat is made from 100% linen, the most cooling material around. Linen allows for better air circulation, and is light as a feather, so you will be sure to not overheat while styling this hat.

Black Wool Felt Boater Hat – If you want to make a fashion statement, then wearing a boater hat such as this one is the way to go! Boater hats have been worn by men and women alike for centuries, and are still in style all around the globe. They can be worn in spring, fall or winter, by men or women, and as a casual or dressed up accessory. The great thing about traveling with a boater hat is that it can keep you warm on those freezing long haul flights, and can cover up a few dreadlocks after a long flight, three stopovers and no brush in sight. This hat is made from wool felt, making it extremely warm —a great accessory when getting off the plane in a cold place— and extremely soft on the skin. The hat has a flat brim, a ruched band and is made of 100% wool. It is very easy to clean, generally a going over with a damp cloth will do the job! How easy is that to maintain when traveling!bb50aa97650ad8777d7c6c9e4e6dfe20.jpg
