It’s been a particularly warm summer, which has its upsides (last-minute jaunts to the beach, dining al fresco, lots of ice-cold beer) and its downsides (the scorching sun and skyrocketing humidity). When slathering on the SPF isn’t enough, a good hat’s your best bet, and we particularly like this cute, frill-detailed version from J.Crew. It’ll keep your complexion free of pesky sun spots, and unlike sunscreen alone, it provides a little cover for your humidity-frizzed coif. Click the image to shop.
Jean Paul Gaultier, Lady Gaga, Comme des Garçons’ Rei Kawakubo—the high-fashion set has embraced skeleton chic once more. We can’t think of a more elegant iteration of the look than Alexander McQueen’s modern-classic skull scarf. After all, as our own Matthew Schneier pointed out last week, the origin of the trend was probably the designer’s Spring 2009 show. Click the image to shop.
