Not totally into those $4.99 straw hats you find in the drugstore next to the plastic lawn chairs? Make them a whole lot more manageable with J.Crew fashion director and head stylist Gayle's suggestion: "Trim down a wide straw hat for a raw-edged brim that's one of a kind." The end result is something slightly Huckleberry Finn, but in a Jane Birken sort of way (it helps to wear yours with delicate summer dresses instead of — say — tattered overalls). Genius!
