Are hats your go-to for style, sun protection, or both? I recently shopped around and gathered-up my favorite straw hats. Can you guess which one I bought? Hellooo, add to cart!
“Cock your hat. Angles are attitude.” -Frank Sinatra
I spent years on the beach lathering baby oil all over my body, including my face. The warm rays soaking into my skin felt like heaven. And like most twenty-somethings, I believed I looked better with a sun-kissed glow. Sadly, younger me was oblivious to the repercussions of sun exposure via sunspots, wrinkles and overall damage.
Now that I’m older, I’m trying to be kinder to my skin. I’m also becoming a smidge too comfortable with summer beach hair. I have far too many things to do. Primping my hair is embarrasingly low on my list. Enter the straw hat!
Thanks to a wide range of silhouettes and playful designs, there are many hats that tick the fashion and practicality boxes. I stalked the embroidered straw hat on the top left a few weeks before finally cha-chinging it. The design and colors provide the playful summer vibe I was seeking. But, if you’re searching for a straw hat with fewer details, these classic styles might be more up your alley.
For those of us seeking sun protection without sacrificing style, I think these straw hats fit the bill. Nothing fits my easy-peasy casual style more than a tee, jeans, Birkenstocks, and a straw hat. The best part is a straw hat will effortlessly pair with anything your creative personality desires. —xo
