I don’t know about you or what your surrounding weather feels like, mine says it’s time to get all the Summer essentials out to use, style and look fab. With the weather getting above 100s, we need all the straw hats whether they be wide brim, boater or frayed, just get them out and rolling. Not only are they essential for the weather, they come handy as accessory for the season.
In today’s blog post, I will be sharing ways in which you can style your essential accessories for Summer and how to incorporate them into your existing wardrobe.
They are not called accessories for no reason, they bring life and spice to a whole look. Whether you are keeping your look simple or not, straw hats are great accessories for Summer and they pair perfectly with so many if not all Summer pieces. Straw hats are not selective pieces, so they can easily be added into your existing wardrobe. If you do not like a wide brim or exaggerated ones you see online, you can opt for a boater or small round one which are typically known as the Minimalistic straw hats. Those ones are easy to manage and carry about. While you have to worry about these large ones getting crinkled, those smaller ones can fit any space and wont attract folds as much as the wide brim ones do.
As to why they are called Summer essentials, not only are they stylish, they actually protect your face from the sun. The wider the brim, the more UV ray protection you get.
Once you lay your hands on the perfect straw hat for your wardrobe, finding a raffia bag to go with it won’t be a hassle. There are a ton of rattan bags in different shapes and styles. Round, square, Oval, Triangle, Hexagon,Simple, Frayed, Plain, Colorful etc. However, the basic and typical straw hat, comes in this light brown color which makes it easy to style since it falls under a neutral color.
A simple white dress, top or a pair of shorts will pair nicely with these accessories. To mention but a few, floral rompers and dresses, print and patterned outfits, will also be perfect with a straw hat and bag. As shown in pictures above, I styled mine with this adorable cut out print dress I found in my neighborhood thrift store. It’s been one of my favorite pieces I will wear a ton this Summer.
