Hat Fun in the Summertime

Hats, Summer, Heat Relief Safety, Straw Hats

Let’s face it, the heat this summer is intense and can be extremely dangerous. Besides wearing sunscreen to protect your skin and staying hydrated while you are outdoors, UV sunglasses help to shield your eyes from harmful sun rays and sun hats are always a fashionable and chic way to stay cool and protect your head and face.

Hats with a wide brim to shade the face, head, ears and neck are great for sun relief safety. Sun hats, straw hats, hemp hats, fedora cloche hats, visors, Safari and Outback hats, ivy caps and baseball caps are fun, fashionable and functional.

Have a little fashion forward fun with hats this summer while you’re staying cool and protected from the brutally hot sun!

Craft your own felt hat or wear one that you purchased, because today we celebrate National Felt Hat Day! That’s right, we celebrate the felt hat on September 15, during National Fall Hat Month, which is observed throughout the month of September. Felt is the oldest form of fabric known to humankind and felt hats were popularized dating back to the early 1900’s.

According to Wikipedia, felt is a textile that is produced by matting, condensing and pressing fibres (fibers) together. Felt can be made of natural fibres (fibers) such as wool or synthetic fibres (fibers) such as acrylic. There are many different types of felts for industrial, technical, designer and craft applications.

So pull out your felt hat and vamp it today. Better yet, since September is National Fall Hat Month, why not boast your fashion swagger, by wearing a hat throughout the month! Happy National Felt Hat Day!
