Liz Claiborne New York Paper Straw Floppy Hat
love the Claiborne floppy hat
Its comfortable and easy to wear. perfect for the beach, grocery shopping, anything! Stylin' in my new hat, TY Q for the price!
Don't buy as is hats
A little crushed on the crown-too much trouble to return-will try to steam out the crease. I have one first quality and love it so much I wanted another. Very inexpensive lesson to learn, under ten dollars.
too big too shallow
The Dia. is to big and no way to adjust.. The depth too shallow it will blow/fall off easily. Not worth the shipping to return 10.00 waste of money cost and shipping together
very cute and functional
i do wish the brim flopped a little more but this is a little different. and it is really cute ! my hubby loves it, i got the black.
This hat does not pack well for travel and lost its shape. I wore it only once because now it looks shabby and old. Disappointed.
Love These Hats
I bought both colors, at this amazing sale price. They look expensive, and the paper straw has an interesting weave and texture that simulates real straw in a believable way. There is also a braided cord that goes around the crown. The brim width is about 4 inches long for protection. While these hats are not canvas SPF 50 hats, they do provide moderate coverage. There are a few tiny openings from the weave design, but the majority of the sun is filtered. These hats are flattering on the face, and can go dressy or casual. The brown hat is a mocha color, which goes with everything, and looks more dressy than a natural straw. A very elegant look for summer events, when you want a hat. Also useful for afternoon weddings, garden, or pool parties, when you need sun protection. Ditch the baseball cap and go upscale!
Nice summer hat
I like this hat. One reviewer said she would not wear it in the sun......I would. The hat is meant to be a fashion hat, not a sun-blocking hat. If I am going to spend hours in the sun, I have other hats to wear for protection. In this one, I am just going to look cute in my maxi-dresses I bought this spring for the first time. Got the brown/natural and it is very pretty.
The sun can filter through
The weave on this hat is somewhat open. The crown of the brown hat that I received had the largest holes/open weave which would allow sun rays to filter through. If you look closely at the photos, you can see the openings in the weave. Most paper straw hats are not so open and provide better coverage. Even if this hat were free, I would not risk wearing it in the summer sun.
