Beach bums, take note: We just stumbled upon a straw hat that doesn’t just look fantastic, but protects you from the elements and germs, too.

The Jeff & Aimy straw hat, $25 at Amazon, features a detachable face shield, UPF 50 protection and a wide-brim style. It’s so roomy that, according to the brand, you might not even need sunglasses! It’s easily foldable and packable, so you can chuck it in your beach bag or tote without worrying about it getting bent out of shape.

The adorable hats have a dainty bow that you can position in the back or off to the side. It cleans in a snap, too: Just wash with water, then wipe it down. Reviewers adore this hat — it has a near-perfect rating of 4.3 out of 5 stars. Here’s what they had to say:

Some of the styles include a detachable protective face shield. “As we all struggle through the masks and safe distancing requirements, to have a beautiful hat that is also functional can help you improve your outlook as you venture into the world,” says a five-star reviewer. “I gave this beautiful hat as a birthday gift. So well received.”

“Adorable hat,” a shopper shared. “Face shield velcros in place and is easily removable. The face shield extends far enough that it does not touch your face. The hat itself is excellent quality.”

An unrelenting, too-strong sun can make even a fun beach trip feel torturous. This straw topper offers plenty of protection and style. “I wore this hat all day in the sun at the Masters, and it really protected my face and neck,” one shopper shared.

“Such a cute hat and I'm not a hat person!” another reviewer added. “It’s well made, stylish and does a great job of providing the extra protection my skin needs from the sun! Very happy with this purchase!”

The hat comes in over 15 colors and variations — perfect for the style-savvy!

“Just adore this hat,” a gleeful shopper added. “So chic and was a total champ on my trip to Texas in the summer. Great find for any price. Love the detachable strap. Better in person than in the pictures. In person it’s Audrey Hepburn.”

Another shopper agreed with the Audrey Hepburn comparison:

She wrote: “This sunhat by Jeff & Aimy is really well made, and very cute to boot. The hat reminds me of fancy scenes like in My Fair Lady, except on a much more toned-down level. The brim comes down farther on my face, not blocking vision, but definitely keeping the sun off and the black stripes also show on the underside when looking at a person straight on, which is also attractive.”

“This ranks as one of the best purchases ever,” another gleeful reviewer exclaimed. “It is so flattering even for those of us who don’t wear hats. It’s packable and its wide brim really protects. Perfect for our Florida sunshine. My sister from Australia and friend from Vancouver had to have one too and it arrived in 48 hours. It is a really quality product.”
