The number one must-have beach accessory will always be a solid SPF, but its more fashionable counter part has to be the floppy straw hat. It has long been the easiest way to make any bathing beauty look impossibly chic and the latest iteration is oh so stylish and just a little cheeky. Designer Eugenia Kim may have been the first to start embroidering cute phrases on her wide brim straw hats, but luckily the trend has already trickled down to more affordable fast fashion brands like ASOS and Mango, meaning every beach babe can get a piece of the action this summer. You can even update a hat you already own and DIY your own quote like Aimee Santos does here.
