15 Fresh Updates on the Classic Straw Beach Hat

Stay shady, friends.

There are a few things you can share on social media to communicate to your friends that you are, in fact, Having A Great Summer. One: a selfie in a swan-shaped pool float. Two: a shot of a photogenic ice cream cone, held aloft. And three: a photo of yourself in a floppy, embellished beach hat, back turned to the ocean/pool/lake/nearest body of water, a wisp of hair fluttering in the breeze. Luckily, this season's straw hats are more photogenic than ever, with cheeky phrases, extra-wide brims, and loads of tassels and pom-poms.
