Summer is here and you should already be protecting yourself against the scorching sun. No one likes getting burnt, especially on the face, so, say goodbye to your woollen wintery options and a big hello to straw and floppy hats. Invest in a few different styles so you can team them with multiple outfits – and always be protected.
We know selecting the right hat can be a tricky decision. Here are some handy tips to help you out:
The floppy hat. Perfect for your bohemian-chic days when you let the hippy inside you venture out. Summer screams loose-fitted tops and maxi dresses, which work best with a wide, floppy hat. Be brave; opt for big styles and save your face from direct sun. The secret is to wear the hat – don’t let the hat wear you!
The cap. The best choice for a laid-back look, choose a cute cap for your weekend expeditions. A sleek leather hat will dress up your outfit, and is guaranteed to add a flawless touch to your day or night get-up.
The fedora. The perfect summer hat that can be worn for any occasion; whether it be a road trip or a visit to your local café. Don’t be restricted by the classic straw style, branch out and shop around for different options. Team a black fedora with denim shorts and a tee.
The baker-boy cap. It’s been around the block but this casual cap is a go-to for summer. A little rounder in shape and with a stiff peak in the front, this style goes really well with a classic jeans and tee combo. Try a tweed pattern to top off your outfit.
The slouchy beanie. Maybe not your first thought for a summer hat, try this look for a day indoors. Look out for crochet beanies and light fabrics like cotton, that aren’t too heavy on your head. Choose bright, fun colours to match your outfit.
