Dorfman Pacific has been expanding the sun protection portion of its line season after season and the 2013 Scala and Tropical Trends brand collections are the most exciting and comprehensive yet. The variety is enormous and exciting so that everyone is tempted to discover a hat they can enjoy that expresses their own personal style.
Solids, stripes and patterns in simple or high fashion silhouettes abound. Buckles, bows, ties and shells are just a few examples of the unique detailing included in the mix. Visors, fedoras, floppies, safari looks, caps, bucket shapes, boonies and large sun brims (up to 10 inches!) are all so appealing that most women will want several. Hats are featured in many wonderful materials, too. Cotton, raffia, toyo, sewn ribbon, and paper braid are just a few of many options. Priced affordably, this is a real possibility since most retail from $20 - $75.
I was sent the Tropical Trends Women's Hat for review consideration. It is a strikingly pretty brimmed hat. It is a floppy style with a 4-inch brim. It, too, is paper braid which is both chic and practical. It has a self sizing tie to adjust to one's head size and is offered in four color variations....all natural with different trim tipping the brim, including black, tea, turquoise and fuchsia. Each trim is very appealing and will accent many outfits. This style retails for about the same price point as the visor, $25. On top of all its fashion benefits, it carries the UPF Sun protection factor of 50 plus which is just what today's savvy women want as added protection to their daily summer outdoor routine! Another great advantage is its pack ability and recovery. It is light weight and bounces back into shape, therefore it can be easily stored in a beach bag or taken away on vacation. This hat is also ideal to wear at home for a walk and other activities like gardening.
I've been out and about wearing my new hat to the beach and pool area. From Santa Monica Pier, Las Vegas, and back to Venice Beach, this hat has been offering me protection and style. What I really like about it is the self sizing tie, it keeps your hat comfortably sit on your head even when it is breezy. That gives you one less thing to worry about and more time to enjoy the beach or pool.
I highly recommend this for the summer, get yours here. Enjoy!
