Thus far, 2020 has been a pretty odd, and even stressful time in our lives. Many of us have been quarantined in our homes, wondering when life will finally go back to normal. And if you’re anything like me, you’re constantly daydreaming about the summer - that summer we all look forward to. Whether it’s basking in the sun, enjoying your favorite summer cocktail, or taking a walk on the beach, we all miss it. Especially on National Straw Hat Day, we can’t stop thinking about our go-to summer hats. Yes, National Straw Hat Day is a real thing, and we’re totally here for it! Today is the day when we all bring out those summer straw hats we’ve been dying to wear. With that in mind, we’re here to give you the Jamie Slye summer guide on our favorite, top 5 summer trends of the season!
TREND #1: Panama Straw Hat
Summer can be pretty unpredictable sometimes. Some days you’re caught in and out of thunderstorms and other days you’re hiding from a never-ending heatwave. Summer is the perfect time to embrace the sunscreen and experiment with different types of hats. Panama straw hats are the perfect way to amp up your summer look. These hats are handwoven and can take up to two weeks to be made. Panama hats protect your skin from harsh UV rays, while also maintaining a chic style.

TREND #2: Bermuda Shorts
Along with a Panama straw hat, you’re going to want to show off that effortless summer style we've all been waiting for. When it comes to warmer weather, we’re loving a good pair of Bermuda shorts. These shorts are perfect due to their versatility and length. Being a little longer than a normal short and over the knee for men, they are sure to give you a unique look. These shorts are the perfect way to make a statement and update your summer style! Whether you're wanting a fashion-forward look or even a more casual look, these shorts are just the versatility you need!
TREND #3: Yellow
Summer is the perfect time to add some color to your wardrobe, and we think yellow is the color of the season! Who doesn’t love yellow? If anything, it’s a symbol of happiness, and summer is all about feeling happy and showing off your bright smile! If you’re hesitant about being too bright, go for a more mustard yellow, like our Phoebe hat in gold.
TREND # 4: Denim Jumpsuits
Let’s get back to basics. There’s seriously nothing better than a denim jumpsuit. It’s a whole outfit in one! These are perfect for an easy and laidback take to your summer look. Pair these with your best white sneakers and favorite hat.
TREND #5: Retro Shirts
Now, we can’t get enough of retro shirts and retro patterns! These are great for getting outside of your comfort zone. A Cuban collared shirt with a retro print is sure to be a showstopper at any summer event!
