My favorite travel hats • The blonde abroad

favorite travel hats

It's no secret that I love a good hat! As I ran across Europe this summer – through Ireland, Italy and Greece – I was doing my fair share. From straw straws to woolen fedoras and even fisherman-style lids, hats are the perfect way to polish an outfit, great for avoiding some harsh rays … and best of all – perfect for hiding unstable hair!

Do I feel?

While dry shampoo is a lifesaver, sometimes when I'm a road traveler or exhausted from a long day of wandering around, washing and styling my hair is the last thing on my to-do list. So bring the lids!

No mistake, here are my favorite hats to complete any set!

How do you travel with hats?

I often have questions about how I travel with so many hats. I have some tricks on my sleeves!

  • One: The hat clips are fantastic to hang from your backpack or bag.
  • Two: hat boxes are also pretty cute if you have space in your luggage (they can also be a good place to store some trinkets while traveling, too).
  • Three: Stack them, fill them up and create a cocoon in your suitcase with socks, shirts and other soft materials.
