super market: lifeguard hats

throw some shade this summer

by rachael wang

I love sunshine--need it even, in a bit of a compulsive way, so you can imagine how totally stoked I am that it is nearly summer. I'm not so into the skin damage situation that's very close buddies with obsessive sun worship though, obvs. My solution to this sartorial conundrum (after applying sunscreen, duh) is the lifeguard hat which was invented specifically for people who bake in the sun for no less than eight hours a day. Swipe through the gallery for the best way to shade what your momma gave ya.
