Are there an options instead of a baseball hat?
Yes, there are many options so please ladies don't reach for a baseball hat unless you are going to a baseball game. Hats are always a stylish option especially when you are heading out to brunch, window shopping or sitting enjoying a cappuccino with the girls.
Our tips to finding the right hat:
1. Look for a tight weave hat - this will ensure that sunlight does not pass through and cause sun damage. Some hat materials have been tested to block UVA/UVB rays.
2. Stick with a light colour hat - light colours bounce rays off the hat where as black or dark colours absorb the rays and will cause heat and a sweaty head
3. Material - choose a natural straw, or a combination of natural and synthetic to wick water away. Cotton will only hold water and get heavier and water logged. Eric Javitz uses a material called Squishee ( made from rayon, viscose, nylon and cotton which not only does it breathe but it is packable and doesn't lose its shape.
