The Ultimate Instagram-Friendly Accessory for Spring /Summer (A.K.A Straw Hat)


Summer is right around the corner and I can’t think of a better accessory than straw hats. Here are some of the reasons why a hat is so Instagram-friendly. 

  1. A big straw hat fills the screen, it’s a powerful image. It frames your head and leads viewer’s eye to you.

  2. Posing can be scary or awkward especially if you don’t know what to do with your hands. But fear not! Hats provides a surface for your hands to hold on to. You can hold the brim, the top while it’s on your head. Or you can get playful and hold them on your hand while twirling, running etc.

  3. Straw provides a natural texture and interest to the styling and gives spring/summer feeling to the photo.

Soo here are my favorite straw hats that I purchased for my client wardrobe and use them on a daily basis:

Perfect amount of curl on the brim and structured straw gives an ethereal vibe to photos.
