“No hat, no play!” — it’s something our teachers would tell us in primary school, which would normally elicit an indignant sigh in response. But it turns out, those teachers had a very good point. Even as adults, we still seem to need reminding about the ‘slap’ part of slip, slop, slap.
Turns out, wearing a hat isn’t *just* about giving your face extra protection. We all seem to forget about the skin on our scalp (where you can’t exactly apply sunscreen) — you know, the only part of your body that’s closest to the sun! And take it from someone who had to have what the docs believe to be a (thankfully not life-threatening) cancerous mole on my scalp removed — you certainly can get sun damage there.
The good news is, there are heaps of stylish hats out there that will not only help keep you sun-safe but are actually the perfect finishing touch to any summer outfit. Whether you’re into caps, trilbies or wide-brimmed straw hats, we’ve got you sorted with 11 chic options.
