When it comes to looking effortlessly cool, few accessories manage to do the trick quite the right piece of headwear. And now, since winter is officially over, it’s time to swap our fur trappers, slouchy beanies, and felt fedoras for the ultimate spring accessory: The straw hat.
What’s so great about straw toppers, you ask? For starters, they have an innate ability to make any outfit look that much cooler—from a basic pair of jeans, a tee, and a loose linen blazer, to a printed mini-dress and ankle boots.
Whether you’re partial to classic Panama version, a retro-style bowler, or standard straw fedora, we’ve rounded up 10 cool options to buy and wear now. One thing to keep in mind: As much as we love super-wide-brimmed versions, we think those should be reserved for the beach, whereas the versions featured above can be worn pretty much anywhere, from casual Fridays at the office, to a night on the town.
