Not only is a holiday or sun hat essential to help prevent you from getting sun stroke or burning the parting on your head (I've done this a few times!), they also give a stylish edge to the most simplest of daytime outfits whether on holiday or at home.
Choose Trilby's and Panama styles to go with shorts, t-shirt and flip flops and larger glamorous or cowgirl styles with maxi dresses (although maybe not as large as Samantha's).
Either wear it to the airport, or pack it by filling it with bikini's or underwear and placing it in the middle of your case and pack the rest of your clothes around it, to prevent damage.
Lots of great styles on sale if you haven't already bought one. Check out my favourites below.....
