Here in Singapore we don’t have a strong culture of wearing hats, but a great hat can add a touch of fun to an event like the races or a special party. They can also be a stylish and practical addition to complete a holiday outfit or simply to shield you from the hot sun on a daily basis.
A visor is a good option for sports or outdoor activities, allowing you to be comfortable and active while shading your face from the sun.

The Floppy Hat
The floppy hat is a trendy way to accessorize your look, taking any outfit to the next level. Its wide brim also means that you’re getting great sun protection.
