I love hats. They’re the perfect way to protect your precious hair and face, cover up a bad or no work hair day, and the best way to top off an otherwise simple outfit. So, two things on this topic. First, I was looking at white summer outfits on Pinterest the other day and started thinking of the best way to easily wear a monochrome white outfit. One of the easiest ways was to wear it with a straw hat. I know. That sounds so trivial and basic, but all the white outfits I love had straw hats and dark brown accessories. It’s just such an easy way to make it all work.
Second, I’ve been OBSESSED with Eric Javits hats for years. My favorite travel purse is by them and it’s such a great product, that I quickly turned to their hats (a much bigger selection). Most of their hats offer sun protection (UPF 50+ on the Cannes model – #1 above) and they’re packable, so you can shove them into a suitcase or beach bag and pull it out in perfect shape. Oh, and the designs are AMAZING!! I’ve been trying on that Cannes model every time I’ve visited a Nordstrom for the last year or so – I’m totally obsessed! And the pom pom design (#3) is now consuming my thoughts! The price for these straw hats is on the high end (ranging $200-$250), but you absolutely get what you pay for. Anyway, here are 7 straw hats – each of which would take you swimmingly through summer from poolside, wine tasting, and European vacations to walking in the park, backyard bbqs, and days by the lake!
And before I forget, some of the summer flats I shared last month are on sale, so be sure to check out those deals!
P.S. Isn’t this the dreamiest of dreamy hats (also by Eric Javits).
