When it comes to summer accessories for men, it's important to choose pieces that pair well with your outfit as well as provide practicality and comfort in warm weather. From hats and bags to sunglasses and scarves, here's our rundown of this season's best accessories.
1. Haulier Medium Utility Tote Bag
Australian brand Haulier is known for their stylish, retro-inspired bags. Drawing inspiration from the glory days of travel, their utility totes come summer-ready in bright colours. This orange version, for us, is the definition of a beach bag. Made from a durable and water-resistant cotton canvas with room enough inside for your towel, sandals and sunscreen, it also features two internal slips to keep your phone and wallet safely stored. It's finished with leather handles that will soften and age over time.
2. Mühlbauer Straw Braid Hat
No accessory says summer like a straw hat. Crafted in Vienna by expert milliners, this braided style from Muhlbauer is made from fine rice straw. Cool, comfortable and breathable, the brim will keep the sun off your face, neck and shoulders, while the super lightweight construction makes it perfect for travelling with.

3. Bigi Modal Cashmere Spot Scarf
While scarves are often associated with colder weather, they can still serve practical and stylish purposes during the summer months. This Bigi sport scarf is crafted from cool modal and comes in a bright Klein blue colour. It can be used to cover your neck or shoulders as an additional layer of sun protection, or it can even serve as a lightweight blanket on a chilly plane or as a makeshift eye mask for more comfortable travel.
