Hats are everywhere this season! Not only do they protect us from getting too sunburnt but some can be super stylish. So, hat’s off to these designers for making the top 5 best straw hats for this summer:

1)   Bop Basics Floppy Raffia Sunhat: This hat is made of woven raffia and has delicate wooden beading at the top for an exotic feel. Also, the 4-inch brim is perfect for protecting your face from the sun without blocking your vision. You can get it for $98.

2)   Rag & Bone Straw Wide Brim Beach Hat: This round brim straw comes in light beige with a black and indigo ribbon band accent at the base. This hat is city-chic, and is great for a day out shopping. You can find it for $175.

3)   Sonia Rykiel Grand Hat: This straw hat has a crystal logo detail on the striped cotton band, and it has an intentionally frayed edge. The edge gives it a remote island feel while still protecting you from the harsh sun; it’s the perfect hat for a beach vacation. You can buy it for $168.

4)   Bop Basics Textured Sunhat: This sunhat has open weave detailing at the crown and a canvas band that wraps around the base. It also has brass rings on the band, adding to the casual yet sophisticated look. You can find it  for $98.

5)   Chloe Black Fedora Paper Hat: This round floppy brim hat comes in black, with an indented top and chic clack and cream banding at the base. Since most hats are beige this will really stand out. It’s on sale for $161.

Broad Brimmed Beauty

It’s summertime which means the sun can be utterly relentless despite your best intentions. Sure you up your SPF protection, but is it enough? Luckily, some of our favorite designers are offering an amazing array of broad brimmed sunhats to keep the damaging rays away. Chic, simple, stylish, and practical, these hats are a truly practical investment for the hot summer months.

One of J.Crew’s “In Good Company” projects involves New York-based milliner Lola Ehrlich, who creates exquisite hats from all-natural materials. This amazing straw sun hat features a wide grosgrain ribbon band topped with a braided cotton cord, and finished with oversized wooden beads.

Juicy Couture’s Tassels Straw Sun Hat brings a playful punch of color with some lush pompoms and tassels dangling from the simple straw brim. The bright rainbow of texture sets the perfect tone for summer vacations or enlivens a basic walk through the neighborhood.

Eugenia Kim’s Erika Sunhat has a classic French-girl flair, with a provençal-style sloped brim and a crisp red band at the edge. Its classic but insouciant look will be equally at home in Brooklyn as it will on Venice Beach.

Any one of these broad brimmed beauties will draw the compliments while keeping your lovely face shaded. Sun protection at its most stylish!

Summer Style Essentials: Straw Bag

As the Chanel Spring 2010 collection walked down the straw covered runway, I was sucked into the world of innocent milkmaids meets Karl Lagerfeld. Aside from the backless clogs which left me skeptical, I kept noticing the straw bags! Embellished with colorful flowers, I quickly plotted ways get the Chanel look without breaking the bank. I love carrying a straw bag in the summertime because they’re light and comfortable to carry even in humid weather. Can you say that about leather bags that end up sticking to your skin? Ew.

While many of the straw bags at the Chanel show were white, I personally prefer the natural straw color and they’re also easier to find! For a casual day with your girlfriends at the park or beach, I would suggest something simple like the Free People Straw & Leather Tassle Tote to hold everything from a picnic lunch, a blanket, and a change of shoes. If you’re looking for something a little dressier, I’m definitely coveting the Tory Burch Straw Shoulder Bag with an of-the-moment turquoise trim.
