Avoid those debilitating UVBs with a look from this season’s onslaught of updated takes on the classic straw hat. Ideal for the beach, some al fresco brunching, or a weekend stroll, this practical and unfussy accessory can add just the right amount of cool (literally and figuratively) to a casual sunny-day look.
Below are three of our favorites:
1. For a little bit of edge, wear this laid-back straw fedora from Urban Outfitters ($28, also available in brown and black), with a simple shorts and tank combo.
2. A cowboy hat from Bop Basics ($80) goes great with a summer dress – just make sure to avoid a head-to-toe prairie look.
3. This beaded straw hat from Juicy Couture ($95) is a maximum-coverage floppy with a bit of an island twist.
