Hot girl summer just got hotter with Old Navy's Straw Visor Sun Hat ($18, originally $20). I never thought I'd be the type to wear a visor over a bucket hat, but I've come to the conclusion that a classic straw visor will never go out of style. A few weeks ago, I decided to start transitioning into my summer wardrobe and realized that so many of my favorite pieces are actually from Old Navy. They are timeless and, most of all, versatile. It felt only right that I picked up a few more fashionable staples for the long summer ahead. I also wanted pieces that can easily transition into vacation looks, and I can't think of a better accessory to top off my stylish beach outfits than this straw visor.
What I Like About This Straw Visor
I must admit, at first, I thought of visors as something only my mother would wear on our yearly family vacations, but after seeing them around in literally every magazine ad, I finally gave in. In the past few weeks, I have discovered limitless ways to style my new visor. Whether you're going to the beach, a tennis date with your girlfriends, or grabbing cocktails at a rooftop, this hat is versatile enough to elevate your outfit for any summer activity.
What's Worth Noting About This Straw Visor
The fit on this visor is exceptional. The elastic back band with a soft-woven lining allows you to slide the hat comfortably on your head without worrying about any slips throughout the day, and they are designed to be foldable, which saves you a headache when it's time to pack. You will be able to stuff it in any bag and have it bounce back to perfection when you are ready to use it. It's also important to note that the textured paper straw material makes it very lightweight, yet the sun will not weave through, so it provides the proper amount of protection for your eyes and, most importantly, your face.
Although I opted for the Cream shade, I have good news for you! The visor comes in two additional colorways: Totally Natural and BlackJack. Luckily, the visor is so affordable that I'm bound to purchase it in the other shades, and I'm sure you will too. And if you are prone to losing hats on vacations, the price tag on this one will make the loss an easier pill to swallow.
Would I Recommend This Straw Visor?
One thing is for certain: trends come and go, but a stylish visor will always be around. I would highly recommend this hat based on five important factors: secure fit, color options, sun protection, price, and how low-maintenance the product is. Truthfully, I was able to get salt water on the fabric without ruining the texture, and that was a plus for me, considering that I plan on spending most of my summer by the water.
And a heads up, Old Navy is giving their customers a special summer treat. You can now grab this straw visor with an extra 25 percent off with the code: BONUS. BRB, I'm adding the two other colorways to my Old Navy shopping cart.
