Summer hats - why you should be selecting yours now.
Summer hats- a fashion statement or a necessary protection?
While a lot of Europe is experiencing a new trend in the seasons, unusual amounts of rain and snow now followed by an inordinately warm spring,this is leading meteorologists to predict a very warm summer with the possibility of record breaking high temperatures in some regions. This may sound like wonderful news and in many ways, it is.
However, the high temperatures will see an increase in sunburn and harmful UV ray damage. A lot of European skin, particularly Irish and British, would not be accustomed to intense heat and will be subject to burns and peeling. The delicate head area will be particularly prone as it is the first point of contact whilst walking around. This is why summer hats should be bought early on while shopping around for sun protection in general.
Summer hats come in many styles and are available for all events...summer weddings, trips to the beach, barbecues and just walking around. Stockists range from budget stores that sell a variety of hats throughout the year mainly for children and teens, to the sports shops that stock leading sports ranges such as Nike, Adidas, Reebok etc or any department store that caters to every taste and budget. Summer hats may be considered a fashion statement depending on the style or the occasion on which they are worn.
However, in this current climate, they may indeed be a necessity...a necessity that could prevent complications to your health.
