Summer hats
I looked at the current hat threads and they don't seem to be quite this.

It's nearly summer and already a heatwave where I live. I love the sun, but like many, I am not interested in skin cancer. In previous years I was more the "I'm sure it would never happen to me" type (naturally olive skin), but now I think some sunscreen and a hat couldn't hurt on those really-high-UV days.

While the typical guy could plop on a baseball cap and look fine, I think it's a bit harder for girls. Yes, there's lots of hat choices out there for us, but don't most of them look a bit bizarre?

Not one to want to make an overdramatic "check out my sombrero/fruit-salad-hat/etc" statement, these are the two solutions I've found. What do you think, and what would/do you wear on your head to protect that beautiful face of yours?



Plain military hat in black. I got this photo from IslandSurf.com and mine is similar but no little square logo.


Plain red baseball cap. Mine is from Roots but this cap is from sport-smart.com. Why red? Well I already had a black hat.

The baseball cap makes me look SUPER casual (and maybe too boyish?) do girls tend to wear baseball caps? I'd like some feedback...

I am happy with the black military hat... it suits my "edgy" vibe...

But I would like at least one more hat for summer... are there any types with a full brim (all the way around) that don't scream "I am Blossom and it's still 1990!" ??

Can you wear a straw hat with a big brim with jeans and runners? I feel like it needs a skirt.

I've bought lovely rafia hat at benetton today! Love it! It's very elegant if worn with dress and looks boho when put together with jeans and wedges
Can't wait to wear it but it's one whole month ahead of summer

Check out panama hats! They come in tons of shapes and colors, and its easy to decorate them with pins and scarves.
