Stylist speak
The trend is functional and aesthetic as experts spill the deets on the trend. Shubhra Sharma, celebrity stylist, says, “Straw hats definitely have our summer approval! They are a single powerful accessory that give out an easy-breezy vibe. While large sun hats in plain white or black with a reverse border are chic, you can also go with cream or beige sun hats that frame the face well. Express your individuality by customising the hat to match your sarongs and dresses.”

Creative advantage
One of the biggest takeaways is that a sun hat is versatile. Sharma elucidates, “Whether you’re aiming for classic elegance, vintage charm or just a contemporary look, this works well. Pair the hat with a long dress, kaftan, shorts and halter top or your co-ord set.”

Straw hats are one thing, but this is also bucket-hat season! Elaborating on these two fashion choices, she states, “Contemporary bucket hats go well with denims. And big hats of course, have that Victorian-era stamp to them aka the eternal style icon Princess Diana.”


TWO COOL STYLES TO FLAUNT

The advantage is one can wear your sun hat with anything from a swimsuit and shorts with a halter top to a midi. Celebrity stylist Vasudha Gupta presents tips on how to wear this accessory via a straw hat and baseball hat:

  • Beach-day chic

Pair a wide-brimmed straw hat with retro swimwear. For jewellery, go for mix metal bracelets, statement earrings and ear cuffs. Add oversized sunglasses to the look.

  • Be a baseball babe

Elevate your denims and white shirt with a red baseball cap if you step out in town. Add on gold or silver jewellery and throw on a pair of Mary Janes.
