There are some things that are necessary on a beach vacation of any kind: swimsuits, sunscreen, cute sunglasses and, of course, super cute straw hats. Straw hats have become a warm-weather and beach vacay must-have in recent years, and they’re showing no signs of hopping off the trend train. In fact, the current trends seem to be adjusting their styles in order to fit into the straw hat spectrum. This is only further proof that straw hats are a summer necessity, and it’s about time we all stocked up.
Some straw hats are the classic big and floppy ones with which you truly can’t go wrong. They’re the quintessential summer straw hat. However, straw hats come in so many other styles as well. There are trendy straw bucket hats, straw fedoras that I truly wish I could pull off (props to you if those look good on you!), straw boater hats and straw cowboy hats. Seriously, there are so many ways to rock a straw hat this summer. Whatever your head shape or personal style, there’s a straw hat for you that’s perfect for your next vacation.
To aid in your straw hat search, I picked 19 of my favorites for you to shop right now. You’ll be tempted to shop them all, I’m sure. And I won’t judge if you do—just make sure there’s enough room in your suitcase for these cuties.
