My fashionistas, a floppy and wide wire brimmed summer hat is the most essential thing to pack when you are heading up to your summer holidays. No matter how I love to see Mr. Sun shining all the time, we can’t ignore the fact that it is so harmful for our skin. So, other than applying bottles and tubes of sunscreen lotion, all we can do to protect our skin from early ageing, skin cancer etc. is getting us a large floppy summer hat. It is double action formula-protects your hair and face;)

It is not quite as simple as we think to pick a hat. Finding the perfect shape that suits your face is the biggest challenge. One piece of tip would be- do not shop online, just like you should not shop for a sunglasses online. You need to try them on, experiment with them and finally decide what suits your face. Your mirror never lies to you! I will share with you here what all I want in my summer hat-

No. 1 It has to be made of resilient paper straw.

No. 2 It flattens and folds for easy packing. It is VERY important. (eg; the one I’m wearing, I faced no trouble in packing it, it is important as mostly when I go on holiday I rely on those budget airlines who put thousands of restrictions in your baggage allowance)

No. 3 An extra wide brim to keep you protected and cool in your beach getaways.

So, next time when you are off to your summer holiday, keep your hats ON to make others say to you ‘‘Hats off” Fashioista 😉

If I was a woman, I would be dressed in the same thing for a month and just change my hat and gloves. Maybe my shoes too; yes, I see what you mean but, really, it's jewels that change an outfit. - Manolo Blahnik
