fishing hats
1. dudley (royal tenenbaums)
2. alexa chung for madewell
3. jak and jil
4. rachel comey SS10

I give you the fishing hat (or bucket hat) as my choice headwear for the summer; perfectly hardy and fuss-free. I've always felt the hat market has been saturated with hats that are too fussy for me. That's not to say I haven't seen a well-worn beret in my time but in truth I've never had the desire to wear one, and well, if I did I'd look a bit of a pillock. Instead a neat little canvas Bucket hat (with a couple of eyelets, no less) in a navy is much more appealing. Both UK and US Amazon sell incredibly cheap bucket hats that fit the bill (see here). To be worn on the beach with a simple high waisted bikini (like american apparel's) or during the day a la Rachel Comey with long hair and legs on show.

I'm scared I'd look like Woody Allen.

I adore hats, but I've never been one for fishing hats at all. That said your little inspiration selection has got me re-thinking.
