For many reasons, summer is my favorite season of all. One of those reasons has to be straw hats. Nothing makes me feel summer ready like a good old straw hat.
Although I like my thick fedora hats in colder months, I tend to wear them only a few times. They just make me feel like I’m trying a little too much. That’s definitely not the case with straw hats. They have something so chilled and relaxed about them. They instantly give your outfit vacation vibes. A straw hat is an effortless accessory to rock in hotter seasons.
Whether you’re traveling or just in the city, they’re always appropriate during warm days. Not only they keep you from the sun, but they also look absolutely cute and very Saint Tropez-esque! Additionally, and most important factor of all, they are perfect for hiding bad hair days!
I tend to prefer lighter colors, but you can wear them even in black. Just like straw bags, they are a summer must. A couple of seasons ago, customized straw hats with writing on them were the hot Instagram vacation accessory. Although this trend is still going on, this year it’s about pompoms and tassels. Just like on bags, pompoms and tassels are a cute way to jazz up a straw hat.
No matter what size, shape or color, straw hats are a wardrobe essential in the summer. Below, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite straw hats for every taste and every budget!
