I've bought a fabulous coat for school run type days and made a huge mistake because it doesn't have a hood shockshockshock

I have 3 under 5 so still holding hands, putting up pram etc and the 2nd week back on school run have been soaked most days as can't hold a brolly whilst doing all the above grin

Anyone got/seen a hat that will help keep me dry without making me look like I'm 90 Even of that's how I feel most of the time

I was considering trying to treat my cotton coat to make it showerproof but without a hat I'll get soaked hair. I've got a proper mac for real rain but I wanted something more stylish for day to day.

Try Lands End. They always have something, but you might have to search quite hard to avoid the granny look

Barbour do rain hats. They come in all sorts of colours too.

Not exactly elegant, but they'll keep your head good and dry.

Tilley hat? Link

I have a black patent one from H and M. It probably does make me look like I'm 80, but at least I'm hands free.

Might be worth looking there?

I might take a chance with this. At least it's fairly cheap if it's awful.

I'm just so fed up of living in a shapeless raincoat I don't care if the hat is a bit grundy.

What about one of those transparent plastic head scarves that fold up into a little pouch? Can you still get those? <gets coat and leaves S & B forever>

Ooh, bet you can. In fact, I'm sure I've seen some in a shop recently (local cheapie homewares store). All the old ladies used to have them when I was little. Very practical grin.

What about the Barbour Stockman hats?

My sister got a crackng one at her local saddlry.
its like a cowboy hat.

I was going to suggest one of the leather cowboy style hats which, on further research, are the same as the stockman hats suggested above. I have one and go through phases with it (not sure whether I like it or not) but Kate Middleton has been snapped wearing one so must be ok no?

A rain hood! That's what they're called. Problem solved grin

This is the rain hat I wish I'd bought from Anthropologie. They are now sold out and I've never seen again. No help I know, but wanted to share my regret wink
