BEST Straw Hates for Summer, Affordable Straw Hats | Louella Reese

Two summers ago, I purchased my first real straw hat. Sure I had a few here and there throughout the years but never one I found myself wearing often. However, when I purchased Brixton’s Joanna straw hat, I found myself wearing it more often than not! In fact, I became certain people were tired of seeing me wear it so often I purchased the hat in a second color to spice things up a bit. 

After that purchase, I was hooked, both for the sun protection and the style they provide. Even the simplest summer outfit feels more put-together when topped with straw hat. My recommendation is to start with a classic wide-brimmed straw hat (like the one I mentioned above, see below as well). See how often you find yourself wearing it and then add to your collection with more unique styles. 

Below I am highlighting a few of my favorites for the summer season.

My Go to Straw Hat

The perfect classic straw hat to wear with everything from a floral maxi dress to shorts and a tee shirt + everything in between!  A super versatile hat that’ll carry you from one occasion to the next. 

The hat is structured, great quality, very comfortable, comes in a variety of colors, has sizing options and is under $50. Another benefit, it looks great on everyone! I cannot tell you how many people have asked to try it on or said they loved my hat and wish they could pull it off so I forced them to try it on…it looks good one everyone! A universally flattering hat.

This hat is an absolute beauty! You may have spotted it on some of your favorite influencers last summer as it was definitely trending. I feel it is safe to say it will be doing so again this summer. 

Made of 100% baked palm leaves by artisans in Mexico this hat is structured and made for summer living! Pair with your swimsuit for a day on the beach or with a fabulous maxi dress for a night out.

BROWN BOATER for summer

Brown Boater Hat

I don’t personally own a boater eye but have been wanting to add one to my collection for quite some time. I’m thinking this brown one just might be the one. It is from the same brand as my go to straw hat mentioned above. 

Boater hats offer a little preppy touch probably due to the fact that they were originally worn when sailing or boating…hence the name. They have now become a go to summer hat for everyday life for both men and women. And I personally think they are just the cutest!
