If you’re like me, then you’ve got travel on your mind. I honestly have it on my mind 24/7, but especially now thinking of summery and warm destinations where I can switch up my style and wear outfits I wouldn’t normally wear at home. One hat that is synonymous with warm destinations are Panama Hats, which I only recently learned aren’t even necessarily unique to Panama.
The hat has an interesting history related to a very famous photo of President Teddy Roosevelt at the Panama Canal wearing a distinctive hat, but in fact the hat was a Montecristi hat hailing from Ecuador.
Obviously since the opening of the Panama Canal was such a monumental historical event, the context of the hat got lost in the mix. The Montecristi hat is made of toquilla straw which grows in Ecuador, and is handmade by artisans in Ecuador in the province of Manabi.
Name aside, I can’t think of a better hat for a warm destination. You can wear the Montecristi hat with a suit, sundress, bikini, or literally anything else. Somehow, someway, they can look dressy and casual at the same time. Men and women look equally fabulous in them.
Depending on your budget, Ecuadorian Hands offers a huge variety of Montecristi hat styles, trims, and weave quality, giving you truly the exact hat you’re dreaming of.
They also come in a variety of natural colors and even pastel shades. Whether you go for something classic or something more ornate, I can’t think of a better pieces to finish off an outfit. And by the way, these hats ship free anywhere in the world!
