There are straw hats to suit virtually any and everyone’s taste. There are bucket styles, ones with wide brims, and more classic cowboy and lifeguard-type varieties that have chin straps. Although most are typically kept in their traditional neutral, straw color, there are also many options for colored hats as well. Some also come with a colorful bandana trim for a bit of whimsical charm. Therefore, it is easy to find a style for any sort of setting, whether it is lounging around at a resort or doing work in the yard.
One of the best things about straw hats is that they expertly mix style and functionality. Although wide brimmed hats come in many different shapes and in virtually every color of the rainbow, they play an important part in keeping one cool during the hot summer months and in shielding the face from the harsh and damaging UV rays of the sun. The larger the hat, the more sun protection and, luckily, these large hats have become all the rage among resort patrons and beach goers alike.
However, other than giving some much needed sun protection, people simply love wearing these classic hats. They have an aesthetic that appeals to many different people. Folks who enjoy a laid-back style and those who like a more natural look can all take pleasure in wearing this functional, yet fashionable, headwear. They also can be a great way to add a bit of western flair to your outfit without needing to invest a lot of money. Cowboy hats can cost a pretty penny, but straw hats can give you a similar vibe for a fraction of the cost.
