'Vacationer' Ladies Sun Hat - Frankie / Flax

by bedhead

A light-and-airy, shapely style for true feminine style, and now adjustable for the perfect fit! Made from 100% eco-friendly linen which can self-cool in summer and warm in winter, the Vacationer hat provides UPF50+ sun protection without overheating heads. The wide brims shield eyes and faces all year round, while the woven interfacing and thin cord edge in the brim gives a little more flexibility and shape without flopping in eyes, giving a soft movement to the hat rather than that rigid feel of other women's hats.  

Adjustable ties can pull in or out for the perfect fit and with four different size ranges, there is a hat to suit all sized heads! Fully reversible with a pattern on one side and a coordinating solid colour on the other, you get two hats for the price of one. We've designed our ladies hats to coordinate with some of the children's hats in the range for matching mum-and-mini style.

We can’t stop designing striped hats! This time they’re tiny lines of burnt orangey yellow paired with neutral flax for a fresh summery feel. Available in Flap Hat, Sun Bonnet, Classic Bucket, Ladies Sun Hat, Adult’s Frayed Bucket and Ladies Wide-Brimmed Visor.

Best suited to: Adults and teens who love a more relaxed, natural feel with their fashion, and mums who love to match their kids.

No two heads are the same, so it's always best to measure first to get the perfect fit.

As adults we might not have to worry about our heads growing anytime soon, but how we wear our hair (and how much hair we have!) can impact on sizing. It's always best to measure your head before choosing a style. Luckily, most of our adult styles are adjustable to enable you to get the perfect fit if your measuring is a little askew (hey, it happens!)

Step 1:  Use a fabric tape measure or ribbon and wrap around your head where a hat brim would naturally sit on you, around your hairline to the nape of the neck. If using a ribbon, pinch where the ribbons meet, remove from head and now measure against a ruler (double it if you're still measuring the folded ribbon).

Step 2: Check your size against our size charts. For the best fit, choose a hat where your head size is bigger than the smallest of the size range. Ie, if your head measures 54cm, choose the Small which has a size range of 52-56cm. If you're on the cusp, choose the biggest size so you can adjust.

Step 3: Take into account how much hair you have and how you wear it also. If you measure 63cm but have a huge head of beautiful curly hair that you like to wear down with a hat, you might do best to choose the 64cm-68cm - you can still pull it in, but it gives you a little more room for your hair than the 60-64cm size would.
