Summer Scarf Tying

You don’t have to be a creative person to nail the techniques for summer scarf tying, but why not go all out and have fun with it?

Of course, there are countless ways to wear a summer scarf.  But hold on, let’s go back to the beginning:  What is a summer scarf, you ask?  Summer scarves are specifically lightweight enough to be worn in warm weather, for sun protection, style, or slight warmth.

You can throw it over your neck, knot it, twist it, hang it– just to name a few.  Take a look at a few versions of the way we have tied or wore our scarves:

Straw Bag

Nothing screams summer chic more than a straw bag!  It’s the summer staple item equivalent to a little black dress.  This vintage, classy look is perfect for easy transitioning within your wardrobe.

Boardwalk Style’s straw handbags are very light weight, and a beauty to look at.  Our straw totes come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and are great for the beach or summer nightlife!

But enough talk, let’s show you some of our best straw handbags for spring and summer 2014!

This first Boardwalk Style black straw bag has an angled top, almost like a pentagon shape.  Because this is one of the larger bags, the round handles make it easy to hold by hand or on the shoulder.

This Boardwalk Style natural handbag gives off a Native American vibe with its straw weave
and turquoise beading.

Sun Protection Hats

The sun’s rays feel hotter and hotter each year, and the importance of sun protection hats has become increasingly essential now more than ever.

When one thinks of sun protection, the automatic thought is, of course, sunblock.  Sure, sunblock works great and is very important to use no matter what the weather forecast may be, but why not take protection one step further by physically protecting your most preciously exposed area with a sun protection hat?  After all, there is only so much that SPF 1000 can do.

No more squinting in the sun, no more sunglass tan lines– these hats will be sure to block the potentially harmful ultraviolet rays from your gorgeous face, all while looking fresh and fashionable.

Here at Boardwalk Style, we have your best interests at heart, and we want to see you shine in the sun, while being health conscious about sun protection too!

Below are  the Top 10 UPF 50+ Boardwalk Style sun hats that give the best sun protection.  Curious what UPF stands for?  UPF 50+ means that the Ultraviolet Protection Factor of 50+ will block 98% UV radiation (the highest rating on the market).
