Toptote by Lindsay Albanese

Deciding to wear a hat is a major outfit commitment. First of all, there’s the hat-hair situation. And what do you do if you want to take your topper off? Just hold it awkwardly in your hands? What if you’re on the go? Basically, wearing a hat is akin to traveling with a small child. Or a dog.

Enter Toptote by Lindsay Albanese, a first-of-its-kind accessory made just for hat wearers.

Designed by Los Angeles–based stylist Lindsay Albanese, the Toptote is essentially a hat clip for your handbag. It attaches to the strap of your purse (or even your luggage) like a key chainand relies on magnets to hold your hat securely by its brim. Voilà, a functional and sleek solution to your hat conundrum.

Best of all, the clip is cute in and of itself, so you can keep it on your bag even when you’re not wearing a hat. (We’re partial to the patent leather “pout” option.)

Toptote is available online and through Nordstrom. Hat wearers, the world is your oyster.
