Go in style to your next beach luau. You won't be wearing much clothes?just trunks or a bikini or maybe a grass skirt?but you'll need to cover your head with a luau hat. A big straw bird's nest hat will protect you from the sun while making you the most fashionable person at the party. A luau is a Hawaiian themed party. In fact, to Hawaiians, the word luau is synonymous with party. Most luaus involve flower leis, traditional music and dance, drink, and lots of food. While a luau may last long into the night, if it starts during the day you're going to want to make sure your head is covered. A big straw hat is perfect. It will shade you while being still being ventilated.

Luaus are not the only place a tropical hat like this belongs. Any beach themed event is a great reason to dress like an islander. Wear it to a tiki themed party or even a tiki bar. Any Polynesian or South Seas themed beach party is suitable. You're not limited to the Pacific, either. A big straw hat is great for a Jamaican or Caribbean islander costume too. A hat like this would be a great way to complete a silly tourist costume. Wear it with a bright Hawaiian shirt, khaki shorts, black socks, and sandals. The hat also goes well with a Mary Ann from Gilligan's Island costume, too.

If you're dressing for some beach fun, be it a basic ocean themed party or a luau complete with grass skirts and leis, a hat will really make your costume complete.
