Staying stylish when travelling is no easy task, particularly when you are backpacking or limited to a specific baggage allowance. However, there are some wardrobe essentials that lend themselves to be utilised when globe trotting and number one is a quality summer hat. Given how dangerous prolonged exposure to the sun can cause combined with its ability to prematurely age our pretty selves before our time, I don’t leave my accommodation without decent protection atop my ginger head. When you’re out and about seeing the sights your days are bound to be long and predominantly spent outdoors, so here are my current favourites to stay stylish and sun smart. Be sure to gravitate towards lightweight material with a cream/white/tan finish as the colour choice will help maintain body temperature whilst also being the perfect match with any outfit on your journey.
