Smart Systems for Off-Season Storage
Stow caps, cloches, and straw toppers in a (crushproof) storage ottoman. Nest structured hats in the center, stuffing the innermost one with tissue paper or floppy cloth sun hats, which don’t mind being squished. Add summery flats around theedges. (Tuck them into cloth shoe bags first if the bin lacks pockets.)
