One of the best things about straw hats is that they expertly mix style and functionality. Although wide-brimmed hats come in many different shapes and in virtually every colour of the rainbow, they play an important part in keeping one cool during the hot summer months and in shielding the face from the harsh and damaging UV rays of the sun. The larger the hat, the more sun protection and, luckily, these large hats have become all the rage among resort patrons and beachgoers alike.

Most people globally suffer from eye problems caused by sunlight while others keep complaining of sunburns. Luckily, the designers of these straw hats have this in mind as they keep the front part elongated. This means, despite hats making you look fabulous, they have added health benefits. The hats also match different wear, a factor that makes them liked by cowboys and girls. The overall benefit is their unique designs that can be used to represent different meanings.
