Straw hats were originally created to shade one's eyes from the sun. The evolution of the straw hat has made it more fashion and less function. There are still hats out there that will protect you from the sun like a lifeguard hat, but a girl's straw floppy hat or Panama hat may not do much, but allows her to look good. That's why girls love to wear a big pair of sunglasses with these hats. Men and women can choose from these different styles of straw hats and more from brands such as Quiksilver, Volcom, and Billabong. If you like straw hats, this is the spot for you.
