The Goods: Hats Off To This Beach-Bound Helen Kaminski Cloche

We may all want to while away the hours prancing from one sample sale to the next, or loading our virtual shopping carts with an entire season’s worth of new duds. Of course, real life (and even realer bank accounts) get in the way. The Goods, our new curated daily feature, delivers one standout steal hand-selected for your quick and easy shopping pleasure. Today’s find: a crocheted Helen Kaminski cloche that hits it out of the park.

In a long-ago Allure interview, hat aficionado Anna Sui said the reason why baseball players look so good is because of the face-framing effect of their caps.

We suspect being tan and athletic might also have something to do with it, but here’s hoping the same logic applies to this Helen Kaminski cloche.

Leave the fedora, trilby and — heaven forbid — bucket hat at home, and go for the unexpected with this crocheted-raffia chapeau. It’s true this narrow-brimmed number might not provide as much shade as a standard floppy straw hat, but what it lacks in coverage, it makes up for in not making you look like Blossom.

Plus, by now we know the Peony-head thing only works in two places: the world of that look only works in Chanel couture, and that of the Royal Ascot.
