I like big hats and I cannot lie

10:08:00 PM

I have been looking for a summer hat like crazy and still haven't found THE ONE, but considering we are going to sunny and scorching Malta veeery soon... I just couldn't help it and today after visiting thousands of shops in the center of Barcelona I ended up getting one in Parfois.

2016 summer trend is here to stay (at least if you live in southern Europe) and although it may not seem very comfortable whenever you have to carry it around (airport/plane, taxi, bus, train etc.) I'm sure it can save you from a burning sun at certain times of the day. 

The one I got is big enough and floppy, looking very summery-like, with simple details to make it look a bit safari (colors are lau) and a rope ribbon. My only excuse was Malta, since I do not tend to wear headwear around Barcelona -only when I travel abroad.

More and more people are joining the sun hat this summer, since the heat is helping us to buy a hat more and more every day. As the temperature rises, we go for the messy hair don't care attitude but just in case we can cover that with a hat. Now we have all kinds of styles and materials, from lightweight fabrics to woven straw. Not only they protect your head and hair but also neck and face from the UV rays.

Prices range from low to high, and ASOS offers a lot of variety both in style and budgets. The ones I saw today were mostly in Oysho, H&M and Parfois and prices were more or less the same, around 10-20€.




These are just some picks I liked and then I got onto browsing celeb style to see what they are going for this summer, or where some others got the inspiration from (I instantly thought of Blair Waldorf and Serena Van Der Woodsen from Gossip Girl when I thought about travelling around wearing a hat). But of course I head to Bilson, Palermo and Alba when it comes to fashion and style.
