With a lot more Aussie summer to go, weekend getaways remain high on the agenda so keep summer’s hottest fashion accessory at the top of your packing list.

Once seen as an accoutrement of senior citizens or sporty types, the sun visor has become cool again after hitting many a runway from Dior, to Chanel to Louis Vuitton for Spring Summer 2018. No surprise then that it is now a favoured summer accessory of celebrities and the style set.

Of course the 2018 visor has been reincarnated into a new-age athleisurewear version with coloured perspex brim and sophisticated branding; and whilst you may not find Dior’s DiorClub1 visor neither practical or to your taste, you may find the other version favoured by beach-loving Insta stars more to your liking.

Straw or raffia visors have become the hottest summer accessory of the fashion world and Instagram set (along with the straw tote).

A step up from the cloth-covered ’80s-sports’ styles, straw visors come in a range of styles, shapes, colours and patterns and many brands offer eco-friendly, hand made styles made from natural fibres.
