While the humble straw hat has always been a summer staple, this "extra large" creation by French designer Jacquemus kicked off the the enomorous trend that is all over Instagram right now… in all senses.

From fashion bloggers to style conscious celebs, this slightly bonkers yet ever-so-chic sunhat is a total summer 2018 must-have and has graced the wardrobes of everyone from Jennifer Lopez to Bella Hadid.

Measuring at over a metre wide (we weren't kidding when we said it was giant), this straw hat gives a whole new meaning to the term "oversized".

Large enough to effectively double up as a sun umbrella, stylish beach-goers have even been pictured with the hat covering their whole upper body while also sharing the hat's shade between two sun-worshippers.

  • Le Grand Chapeau Bomba, £530 from Jacquemus – buy now

Although with an eye-watering designer price tag of £530 for an enormous hat made of straw, at least you're getting  a two-for-the-price-of-one type of deal.

For those happy to splash the cash however, this sun hat is just about as elegant as you can get this season.

Oozing beach babe vibes, Bella Hadid shared a photo of herself tucked away under the cult Jacquemus hat wearing just a skimpy bikini bottom.

Meanwhile, model Emily Ratajkowski has been channeling 1950s beach chic by pairing her similarly elegant straw sun hat with a polka dot bikini.

Jennifer Lopez similarly jumped on the sun hat bandwagon with this frayed straw number.

Talk about a beachside staple.

Never one to miss a trend, some of Instagram's biggest fashion bloggers have also been getting a piece of the style action by posing underneath its metre-wide expanse to cool down on the beach.

And there's no denying it's certainly a cool addition to the wardrobe… if only it were half the size and half the price.

In more bizarre fashion news, this woman's seemingly innocent "wildheart" vest sparks hilarity after design fail – can you spot it?

Plus this bride has been slammed as "tacky" for wearing a nipple-flashing wedding dress.

And can you spot the secret messages in all of Caroline Flack's Love Island outfits?
