If you’ve ever stood over an open suitcase pondering just how the heck you’re going to get that wide-brimmed hat to your destination without crushing it (and then wistfully put said hat back in your closet because it’s just too much @#$% trouble), then the TOPTOTE™ Hat Clip is for you!

The newly launched problem-solving item was created by Lindsay Albanese, a Los Angeles-based fashion stylist, TV personality, inventor, social influencer and businesswoman.

“The patent-pending TOPTOTE™ is the first product on the market that allows you to carry your hat, hands free!” says Albanese. “It’s the most significant hat-carrying invention since the hat box,” says Albanese, who notes that it is the first of an entire line of serviceable style products that she will be launching under her namesake.

The varied styles of clips hold hats with broad magnets that won’t leave an indentation mark but also hold firm. Plus, they look like bag charms when the hat is removed.

Clips retail for $48.
