Days after Meghan Markle sported her go-to Madewell straw Panama hat at Prince Harry’s polo matches over the weekend, Kristen Bell is here with her own take on the warm-weather trend. The actress posted a selfie on Instagram on Monday, July 2, relishing in her vacation life. She captioned the pic “@airbnb’s are my happy place,” as she lounged in a woven wide-brim Yosuzi topper, floral Montce swimsuit and Fendi frames.
As both the Duchess of Sussex and Bell prove, straw hats make the perfect accessory whether you are out and about or lounging poolside, but they also serve as an excellent source of sun protection. In addition to shielding your face from the sun’s harmful rays (you’re still going to want to apply plenty of sunscreen though!), sun hats also protect your hair from the equally damaging effects. Whether you’re trying to preserve your hair color or looking to avoid that dreaded scalp burn, topping off your look with a fun headpiece is a chic and easy way to be sun smart.
