Today, whilst in Primark's flagship store at Marble Arch, both me and my younger sister bought straw hats. Up until now recently, my view on straw hats was as such: old, frumpy and something my grandma would wear whilst doing the gardening. Don't ask me why that opinion has changed so drastically in the last 2 years, but it has. Straw hats are always a massive trend for the summer because not only do they look very cute in a countrified way, but they also protect you from the sun and aren't stiflingly hot like a cap or other cloth hats. Thus, I decided that the time was ripe for me to invest in a straw hat.
There are many types available in most highstreet stores, styles like tilbys, boaters, cowboy, floppy hats etc. I prefer these types of floppy styles as I think they are really sweet and feminine without being too dorky:
The hat I bought today is really similar to the hat from Topshop, but of course it was only a fraction of the price because it is from Primark. £4 to be precise.
