I need to get serious about my sun protection this year. I wear a baseball cap if I'm out running or slobbing but I can't find anything for when I'm that little bit more dressed up - maxi-dress or jeans and a nice top.

I tried THIS on the other day and it looked quite nice but I'm worried it's a bit young/OTT.

What do you wear? Any tips?

I like the one you linked. I don't think it looks to young or OTT!

I usually wear a cap too, but decided to get serious about my sun protection too last summer and just picked up the first wide brimmed hat I found that looked semi decent on me. It just a cheapy from Target, but it does the job and I'm pretending not to care about the fact that I look a bit like a farmer with it on blush.gif I'll probably start looking for something more stylish now that its getting warm again, but I have something in the meantime.

That one looks much better than mine, and you could definitely pull it off, I'd go for it!

I like that one too. And it is far more stylish than my first attempt at a sun safe hat

development is a journey, not a race

So this! ^^^^^

I'm trying to picture it down the high street and worry that people will expect me to start line dancing/barn raising or similar.

You can get that hat in a dyed raffia - the natural one is a bit 'country' for me.

I have this hat from the same brand, in black. I've worn it for playground duty at school and many a teenager has mocked my sunglasses, but never my hat, so I figure it must be reasonably stylish!

You can get them. I had one. Once. It was perfect. Just like the one Gretch posted and has in black. It came free with a women's mag back when I had disposable income. It was left on the back seat of a hire car in Cairns, after I specifically told DH to get my hat out of the car when he returned it. Bastard.

I'll try a link, they usually don't work from my phone but will give it a go. I like this one: http://www.cancervic...ine-italian-hat

It's probably way too stylish for unfashionable me though tongue.gif

I think stylish hats exist, but I've never, ever been able to find one that suits me. I also have trouble with a lot of them flopping all over my forehead and ears, which push my glasses around (I need them for vision, not just appearance!), and so that really peeves me off.

I'm terrible at wearing hats.........or making the kids wear hats. ph34r.gif

I love hats, although I lean more towards winter hats than sun hats. I have a very sensitive scalp (10 mins in the sun and it is burning) so I wear a hat literally every time I go outside when the sun's out. I have a really old Billabong bucket hat which is my every day sun hat, and another really old green spotty train drivers' hat which is my 'good' hat. I think I'm due for a new one though, since I'll be spending lots of time outside this summer tending our new vegie garden. biggrin.gif

I like chain stores for hats, Portmans, Sportsgirl, etc, and also those pop-up socks and ties stalls in malls and shopping centres. I'm sure really elegant ones exist!

I have a very similar hat in blue I got from Blue Gum or the like (one of those outdoor stores) and it does the job. Not really daggy but not too trendy tongue.gif

DH had a similar problem recently, wanted something with more coverage than a baseball cap but most big mens hats are sooo daggy.
