This summer we’re going to be seeing lots of straw hats. You already know how I feel about exposing skin to sun and what the rays can do to one’s skin, so I definitely endorse wearing a hat. Stay cool under a hat and keep your makeup from melting at the same time. With the variety of fashionable straw hats hitting the stores now, you can enjoy the summer looking on-trend and get some protection from the sun too! (Remember to still put on your SPFs; common sense.) From oversized floppies to fancy fedoras, here are some of my faves.

What I love about these straw hats is the base straw color makes it a neutral accessory to any colored outfit that you wear. Also no matter what shape or size you end up getting, these straw hats are universally flattering. (Tip #1) I can almost hear my girlfriend WW exclaiming, “The wide floppy ones will make my face appear smaller! (Tip #2)” And I totally agree with her.
