    There is no shortage of sunny days here in MIA, which means we have ample opportunities to try out stylish toppers all year long. But, what our northern neighbors might not know is that these shade helpers aren't just for the beach. Having the perfect hat to complement an outfit or protect your skin from the sun is mandatory on the sand and the streets.
