I love hats, I do. In winter, it's a cashmere beenie, and I've even got a trilby for smart days. I wear a hat nearly every day.
But what do you wear in summer? I have a big floppy straw thing for the garden that makes me look like a vicar's wife, and a waxed cotton thing with a floral lining that makes me look like a dick. But it keeps the sun off.
Neither of these go with my summer clothes. I wear skinny jeans with All Saints t-shirts, or cropped jeans with tunics. None of the summer hats on the market go with my clothes. I've tried straw trilbies, cowboy style things...nothing works.
I burn like a mad thing, and swop between baseball caps (huge assortment), a leather Aussie hat, huge red rattan hat, and an unattractive but v practical bucket hat which scruches into my handbag and stays on when running
I like those only the trilby would let the sun through (I too burn). I''m very interested to see what other ideas there are because I have this problem every year as well and I like to cover up all year round on those bad hair days (curly)
