Celebs wearing straw hats

What’s hot this summer, besides the temperature, of course? Straw! From the runways of Dolce & Gabbana to Ralph Lauren, straw is sizzling this summer season.  However, you needn’t spend a small fortune to join the straw elite. Here are a couple of ways you can incorporate this hot item into your summer wardrobe without breaking the bank!

Kate Hudson rocking the wide-brimmed style

- Hats are a must for the summer season. Not only are they majorly trending right now, with celebs from Lauren Conrad to Kate Hudson sporting the beachy-glam look, but they’re actually practical! Wide-brimmed hats will shelter your face from the sun’s harmful UV rays, so you get the best of both worlds, being both chic and sun-savvy. J. Crew sells a super cute version of the straw classic, sold in a natural shade, navy, and papaya. If you take the hipster route, a chic fedora will also do the trick.

- Summer is all about socializing. From clambakes to weddings and everything in between, a straw clutch is sure to add pizzazz to any ensemble. While Tory Burch designed a fabulous version (it even comes in pink!), a more affordable, and equally stylish alternative can be found at DSW. Natural-hued with vibrant pink, blue, or green accents, the Kelly & Katie Hard-Framed Straw Clutch can brighten up any outfit without putting a dent in your wallet.

Straw wedges by Topshop

- Let’s talk shoes! Often the most favorite (and fun) component of piecing together an outfit, the shoe holds a special place in the fashionista’s heart. From slinky sandals to these adorable wedges by Topshop, straw footwear is both a smart and savvy way of defining a look.

- We’ve talked about clutches, but what about their mother, the tote? Besides being a practical option to store sunscreen, eyewear, and light reading for days spent at the beach, the straw beach tote is a classic way to achieve old-school cool with current trends.

Lust: Michael Kors Santorini Straw Tote

From hats to espadrilles, East Coast to West, straw is a head-to-toe global sensation. It screams summer, so get out there and show off your best straw-worthy attire!
