Sure, it's great looking, but this straw hat is far more than just a statement piece. Consider it an essential right up there with sunscreen and shades, especially if you plan to hit the beach this season. Made of resilient paper straw, it's extremely malleable - it folds up with ease and pops right back to its original shape without losing its integrity, and, of course, it protects your face and neck from harmful UV rays. In three colors.
