I always love the idea of a flamboyant sun hat for a holiday, except, in reality, it involves either having to pack it into a suitcase and ruin its shape forever or keep it in pristine condition by wearing it to Gatwick airport at 4 a.m. Neither is ideal. This year, we're all dressing like we're going on holiday in the park, so wearing an OTT sun hat is much more appealing when you don't have the packing problem to contend with.
Thanks to Jacquemus, over the past few years there has been a trend for XL straw boaters, and you'll find plenty of dramatic sun hats that are so large they double as an umbrella. Ribbons are an added detail that gives a Riviera feel to any straw hat. This summer we're also seeing the revival of bucket hats you would have worn when you were 5-years-old—think tie-dye, retro floral prints and rainbow stripes. Keep scrolling to see the hats I have my eye on this summer.
