What does everone think?

I think I want one, but a nice one, but wouldn't even know where to get one. I need a hat but don't do the floppy sun hat look.

Don't like them.

What would you do with your hair?

What should I wear to keep the sun out of my eyes then?

I wouldn't do anything with my hair. just leave it loose?

Ceolas Tue 02-Jun-09 20:53:08

oh nay!


ThePhantomPlopper Tue 02-Jun-09 20:54:05

Mmmm. I suppose you could try it and see.

What about just sunglasses for your eyes or do you need some head coverage too?

Nay, nay and thrice nay. Yuk.

Try millets for cricket hats, reversible with plain fabric one side, jaunty print for over-excited days on t'other.

baker boy hats from places like accesorise.
definite no to baseball caps

fucksticks Tue 02-Jun-09 20:57:12

I have one. It say 'Llanfairfechan' on the front with a Welsh dragon for added effect. I rather like it.

Ceolas Tue 02-Jun-09 20:58:48

Some hats at Next. Any good?

this looks very nice in the cream colour. but i had to return it, as one eye was in shade, whilst the other was ib bright sunlight.

my current hat isnt on the website for some reason. but i always wear baker boy type styles. you get coverage as well as shade for eyes.. but, beware, if youwear foundation, you will get a rim coloured with your foundation, so reversible hats are out.

I so wanted that sexy but casual/active baseball cap look though, you know, the look models and celebrities can pull off so casually?


I don't shop in Next, sorry. No to Millets cricket hats, I want to look nice in a hat grin

Will look in accessorise I suppose <<sigh>> Don't do big straw hats of sun hats, I'd look ridiculous, it wouldn't go with my style.

Overmydeadbody Tue 02-Jun-09 22:18:47

stitchintime I don't wear foundation so that's not a problem. Will have to try these baker boy styles, think they will look silly on me tohugh...

id say straw hat for lolling about in and baseball cap for running only ...... i know feck all about fashion though....... best not burn your head though - nothing worse than a burtn parting - ouch!

Overmydeadbody Tue 02-Jun-09 22:28:12

quite nappyone, ouch!

I usually just wear sunglasses, but after a while they hurt the tops of my ears and I don't like wearing them when I'm talking to other people, so no good for lounging around the park/garden with friends.

I am not wearing a straw hat, I will look ridiculous.

I am going to try some baseball caps on tomorrow, regardless of what everyone thinks!grin

Anyway, if nothing else I could do with it when belaying other people when I'm climbing at weekends, endless hours standing around craning my neck as I look up, I think a baseball cap will be best for keeping the sun out then.

OK if you are under 16 or you are wearing them to do sport

so for climbing or sailing they are fine

otherwise no

Agree with KristinaM- for sport, fine. But generally, noooo.

southeastastra Wed 03-Jun-09 08:55:10

Can't stand them. Never look very good on anyone.

Go to Monsoon, they have loads of hats, try some on, you know you can do better than a baseball cap.
