A great hat can be a great style statement, not just protect you from the sun!!

When you think ‘hat’, do you think, heading to the beach, a pool or a bbq and just want to protect yourself – yes probably, just like most of us.  But, the humble sun hat is really evolving into a very versatile accessory …… protection, fashion statement and the perfect cover when you can’t be bothered washing your hair.

Just like sunglasses, you just need to find that one (or two) that work for you.  I’m not much of a hat person, but I must admit that I do have days when I am rushing around and just pop on a fun straw fedora or pork pie, and feel pretty good.

Now there are lots of suggestions online regarding the right style of hat for your face and hair, but just like all my suggestions, I would say go with a hat that suits your lifestyle and budget.

  • Do you want a hat just for the beach with the kids?
  • Do you want it to double as a nice hat that you would wear to a picnic or bbq with friends?
  • Would you like to wear it anywhere or everywhere, as a little lift to your outfit???

I have seen so many very cool hats, with wide brims, floppy brims, woven fedora style and coloured fabric styles.  Some have flowers, some have ribbons and others are just very simple to compliment any outfit.

Price points for hats do vary greatly depending on the quality and style you are seeking.  I have found great low cost hats in H&M, Target and Zara, along with hats that are quite expensive for DJ’s, Mimco, Witchery and Trelise Cooper.

Head to the shops or check online (although I’m not sure how they post them to you), and check out the wonderful styles around for this summer.

You just need to find the one that’s right for you.
