Summer in Italy in my Italian boater hat

Sponsored by Helen Kaminski.

If there’s one accessory you need for a hot summer in Europe, it’s a good sun hat. I packed a whole hat box full of my favourite hats and visors for my month long island life vacay in Europe, but I just couldn’t go past my Italian boater hat by Helen Kaminski. While some hats are better suited to the beach, and others better suited to a day of sightseeing, I found that my boater-style hat was perfect for every situation. From the ancient cobbled streets of Pompeii and the iconic canals of Venice, to the azure waters of Sardinia and the postcard beaches of the Amalfi Coast, it matched every outfit and destination perfectly.

With its fine weave and luxurious wide Italian 100% cotton ribbon band, this traditional style boater hat is as luxe as they come. Helen Kaminski use only the highest quality raffia, so every hat they make fits like a dream. This Italian boater is no different – since returning from Europe, my friends have borrowed this hat for the races, the polo and for garden weddings – it’s the type of style that is universally flattering. So if you’re heading to Europe (or an outdoor event at home) this summer and are in need of sun hat that that can handle any situation, this is the hat to invest in.
