Summer Straw Hat with Ribbon
Perfect hat for a beach day on a summer vacation. Something about a giant floppy hat can make anyone feel fabulous. Straw sun hats are perfect for hot days because they are lightweight and breathable. Tip: Switch out the ribbon with different colors to match your outfit.
Black Summer Straw Hat
Whenever I go on a summer vacation, I am sure to pack at least one light hat and one dark hat. The dark shade will catch more sun, but the straw material makes it breathable.
Embroidered Summer Straw Hat
What better than a statement hat than one with a statement literally on it? These are perfect for photo opps by the pool or beach. There are other options like “Just Chillin,” “Always on Vacay,” or “Just Married.”

Summer Vacation: The Perfect Time for a Fabulous Sun Hat
I always recommend packing at least one dark hat and one light hat to match your outfit. Foldable hats are great to make your packing easy. Or you can always just wear the hat or clip it onto your luggage. Happy shopping!
