Best Bet: Hats Off


When Frenel Morris of Still Life NYC signed on to make hats for Marc Jacobs, we knew the result would be stylish and covetable. As predicted, his Panama hat, which comes in four colors with an off-white band, is the perfect summer accessory. Hats are making a big comeback this season and these woven straw pieces are handmade in New York using top-notch, old-school techniques. The Panama is light and breathable and the slightly faded hues look incredibly chic on both men and women.
