Hats are one of those accessories you don’t really think about until you need one – in the winter when it’s snowing or if it’s a really sunny day at the beach, as examples. But really, you should use them in your daily outfits more often. Not only hats are useful and protective (they provide shade a.k.a. sweet respite from the sun), they hide messy hair, but they are also a great fashion accessory that can quickly make you look more chic and glam. You throw one on, and all the sudden your outfit is pulled together and you look flirty and mysterious.
This summer ditch the flower crown and baseball caps for something that’s sunray-protectant, chic, and worn by supermodels and iconic babes throughout the ages. This summer the straw hat is a must-have accessory. And you’ve got million options: from a boater with a pom-pom trim to a simple black ribbon, you can’t go wrong with a classic. The straw hat will add a cool touch to every outfit, and like I said previously, it is also the perfect ally against a blazing sun. So, whether you are looking to spend the hot days at the beach or treat yourself to a luxurious resort getaway, you will definitely want to have a good straw hat or two on hand.
Where the straw hat came from? Weaved with straw or reed, the straw hat was initially designed to protect the heads of farmers who spent a lot of time in the sun. The straw is weaved differently depending on the way the wearer wants it to look. In the 19th century, wealthy women started wearing the straw hat on their strolls through gardens or the countryside. Loved for its lightness, the hat was worn differently to suit the trends of the time. Just like today.
