My Favourite Canopy Bay Hat

It’s hard to pick a favourite Canopy Bay hat as there are so many stylish and functional hats. However, if I had to pick one, it would be Malibu. The adjustable fit is comfortable and accommodates my head easily. Easy to keep clean and made in Australia.

The camel colour works beautifully with my wardrobe. It’s also practical for travelling as I can pack it flat in my luggage and it still looks perfect when I pull it out of my suitcase.
