Cheap Thrill: Stay In The Shade With A Vena Cava-Worthy Sun Hat

It's time to graduate from those grimy baseball caps from your college days. When the UV rays are beating down hard, choose a sun hat to shield your face. We've been lusting after hats with a Dick Tracy vibe, and Vena Cava's fall show only fueled our lust for a wide-brimmed, flat-topped hat with major film noir sensibilities. This Topshop version is a fun, affordable option, with a light-weight straw weave, a punchy white stripe, and a cut-out top for maximum ventilation. Accessorize with a bright lip color and a dark shades for a million-dollar look on the cheap—it'll be a mystery to everyone but you how much you paid for it!
