A little bit of sun, but not too much - there's a fine line between sun kissed and scorched, and unfortunately that line can be crossed all too fast. If you're pale like me (and always get a burnt nose or forehead) a good hat is key for summer, and wrinkle avoidance! I was recently hunting for a new sun hat, something simple, affordable, classic and light, I wanted to get back to basics with good old fashioned raffia, and to my joy I found many options. I guess it's true that a good classic never goes out of style.

 Here are some of my favourites below, my first, with a fuller brim I picked up from French Connection, but I'm pretty sure that some of these other great hats will make it home soon too. Click below to grab them for yourselves and be sun smart this summer.
