Accessory Steal of the Week: Straw Floppy Hat


Floppy straw hat for summer

In this weekly column, I’m bringing you my favorite budget-friendly accessory that’s available online or in-stores. This week, we’re talking hats. Make sure to check out my blog SydneStyle for more affordable fashion inspiration!

Whether you’re hitting the beach or the pool, a hat is a summer must-have. Not only does it protect your face from sun (goodbye wrinkles!) but it also makes a major fashion statement. For a boho vibe, I’m a huge fan of the floppy hat.
Old Navy's floppy straw hat for summer

Old Navy has a great floppy hat for only $22.94! Unlike many styles I’ve seen it’s just the right amount of oversize: not too big, not too small. I’ve been wearing mine with sundresses and maxis.

The hat comes in two colors, but I suggest sticking with the classic natural tone. It’s incredibly lightweight and even has a sweatband built in for extra humid days.

Another great thing about a classic straw hat? You can do temporary DIYs to switch up the style. One weekend tie a stripe ribbon around the hat or pin a flower onto the straw on your beach vacation. The possibilities are endless!

Love the straw sun hat so much cause' they are very chic in the first place, and second they protect you from the sun. 23 % for a floppy sun hat is a good price, nevertheless it is also important how you match it...
