Jessica Simpson puts style first with this floppy hat from her fashion collection.
At first glance this crochet hat looks like the ideal combination of sophistication and sun smarts. However when it comes to the latter, we’re sadly let down. I love the look of the crocheted paper straw, but its distinctive holes will let in UV rays. On a cover-up or swimsuit we could simply lather on the sunscreen underneath, but it’s a lot harder when it comes to headwear. Your hair will provide a little protection, but I still expect sunburned scalps.
This sunhat’s brim also isn’t as wide as I’d expect. Customers have reported that it doesn’t adequately shade the face and neck, which makes it a bit useless in my books. While we’ve always got sunscreen on hand to do the job, why wear a hat if it doesn’t provide adequate protection?
I guess there’s a case to be made for style, but personally I expect a hat can look good while it’s keeping the sun’s rays at bay. That’s especially true for the price, which at $38 is no bargain. Jessica Simpson fans and anyone who’s more fashion conscious than sun smart might lap up this crocheted sunhat, but frankly I expect more for my money.
