I love me some good summer fashion! As you know if you have been following on Instagram I am currently in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico! It is HOT here, like I mean, hot, humid, and SUPER SUNNY!
One of my favourite summer accessories, especially on vacation is a cute sun hat! The issue I find though, is that I can never find one that is the perfect fit. Is it just me or do many people have this issue? Well, a few weeks back I was gathering some essentials before the trip (I.e. a cute tote and a sun hat!). I got this adorable one from Guess but again, as per usual, it was too big. . . story of my life!
Now the issues with a sun hat that is too big are endless. Some of them include: always having to have a hand on your head, which ruins the carefree vibe, chasing your hat down the beach or worse, into the water, or possibly losing the hat altogether!
I have a sneaky trick that I’ve used a couple of times now and it works like a charm!
– SAFETY PINS –
I actually use safety pins to cinch in the interior boarder of the sun hat. This is essentially the fabric piece that is “supposed” to fit snuggly around your head, but much of the time doesn’t. You can make it as tight or loose fitting as you like. The only downside is that hair can get caught in the safety pins – for this, once you have determined the perfect fit, simply use some tape around the edge of the pin, so that there is nothing to catch onto your locks and you’re good to go!
What do you think? Do you have trouble with this as well?
Continuing on the summer trends here, I recently did a post on summer inspo, and boy can I tell you sun hats are big this season! Small hats, wide brimmed hats, hats with writing, fancy colours and what-not; so get yo-self a hat! Here’s some of my favs 🙂
