Summer Hats

Did you know it was St Swithen’s Day yesterday? What the heck is St Swithen’s Day do we hear you cry? According to folklore, if the weather is fair on the July 15 (the feast of St Swithin) it will stay that way for the next 40 days. We don’t usually get caught up with folklore but given all the gorgeous weather recently we really hope this one’s true!

To protect your noggin from 40 days of heat you’re going to need a decent hat like our Lookbooker of the week Olivia Lopez. Look no further than the lovely people at Pachacuti…

Pachacuti Hats

Pachacuti is the world’s first company to be certified to carry the World Fair Trade Organization’s (WFTO) new Fair Trade label. This is the first audited certification which verifies that an entire supply chain is following Fair Trade principles and sustainable environmental practices. Which, in layman’s terms, means they are pretty cool at being kind to the planet! We heart all their hats to be honest but here are our top three for the summer…

This Bardot Leaf hat is perfect for summer garden parties, BBQs and could even jazz up a plain wedding outfit. It comes with black or green detail and is the perfect mix of practical and glamorous!

Or keep in simple in this Ladies Wide Brim hat. This classic panama style for Women’s has a wide brim for excellent sun protection. It looks great on its own or jazzed up with silk ribbons or scarves.

Finally, make a statement in this Savannah Hat - one of the most elegant hats in the collection this year, the Savannah fedora has an intricately woven pattern of blue and natural straw. It comes in several colours but we love the blue for it’s nautical edge.

GC articles show you one of four ways (the one in bold) to live greener…

/ Be a winner (not a binner) /
/ Turn up the style (not the heat) /
/ Love the trend (not the spend) /
/
Do it in public (not the car/plane) /
