It also includes an internal tie for fit adjustment, ensuring comfort. Designed to fold flat for easy packing, it's an excellent travel companion. Pair it with the best summer skirts you have for a sophisticated and sun-safe ensemble.


Visors are a fantastic option for those who prefer minimal head coverage. From our experience, visors are also great for styling with tops to wear with leggings in summer, providing a sporty yet fashionable appearance.
