We must confess. We have sinned. Badly.

But it’s straw-tastic!

All jokes aside there is one essential trend this summer that should not be missed. The straw hat, in all its varieties, shapes, colors, embellishments, flowers, tassels, pom-poms. You get the picture. You need to have a straw hat and don’t think it’s just for your romantic seaside escapade, but for the everyday use. So here’s our guide onto where, why and how to buy your straw hat(s) of the season.

2.The raw edges hat – it will come in handy practically anytime, anywhere. We like it on a laid back look with short silk trousers and a basic T-shirt, but it can also be worn with a long, strappy dress.
