black white stripey which looks dashing on, until the peak blows up and then I look like this

What's a girl to do?

Embrace your inner Brenda Walsh and pin it with a hideous flower

MrsBadger Sun 19-Jul-09 20:00:11

wear only on calm days

I had a floppy felt one that, in the wrong wind, made me look Amish

luckily I lost it in Chester

Wasn't me
Never said a word
Certainly didn't link a hideous picture

I wouldn't recommend grosgrain ribbon but a length of hat elastic that goes round the front of the crown, through two (small) holes where the crown meets the brim above your ears and then under your hair at the back will at least keep it on

like the lanyards on the hats aussie lifegaurds wear

just do not put it under your chin
