Essential Things to Buy for Summer Vacations

No matter where you are headed for the summer, there are certain things that you should always keep handy to stay stylish, fashionable, and ready for any summer escapade and activity. Shop for these summer essentials only from the most trusted online retailers and you will be all set for an unforgettable summer vacation:

Summer Hathats are rarely given the attention that they deserve, but they are very practical, especially during days when the sun is high up. They can also be very fashionable additions to your summer wardrobe, especially when you find a summer hat that goes with all your summer dresses and getups. You will avoid burning your face and protect your hair from sun damage while keeping a fashionable get-up.
• Swimwear – whether you prefer a one-piece suit, a two-piece bikini, a good pair of trunks or some surf shorts, carrying around a nice pair of swimwear is essential during summer, when there are plenty of opportunities for water activities.
• White cotton/linen Shirt – White is the most neutral colour you can wear for summer. It is also designed to keep the heat away from the body. A nice and crisp cotton T-shirt or polo will not only look great, but keep you cool as well.
• Summer scarf – Scarves are probably the most versatile accessories you can own. A lightweight scarf with fun patterns in all kinds of summer colours is the best accent for your plain white shirt or any other outfit you have on. They also come in handy when you have to cover up while wearing your swimsuit.
• Waterproof bagBeach hopping is one of the most fun activities to do during hot summer spells. Having a waterproof bag where you can keep all your essential belongings while you enjoy the water keeps your gadgets, wallet, and all other personal belongings dry and safe from water damage.

Choosing Hats and Baseball Caps

A quality summer hat can be both practical and stylish, providing protection from the sun whilst also serving as a great accessory to many an outfit. Yet with so many styles and designs to choose from it can be difficult to know which one to buy. Here we take a look at a few that are proving popular this summer.

Firstly we have this Vintage Snapback Cap. Defined by its flat peak and snap fasteners, the Snapback is a retro design which acts as a wardrobe staple for many. The plain white panelling on the front of the cap allows it to be easily customised with print and embroidery. Available in a variety of colours, this Beechfield cap is on sale at the incredible price of just £2.70.

An arguably even more classic design is that of the Baseball Cap. Suited to many styles, it is worn as much for casual wear as sporting activity for example. One particularly iconic cap is the New York Yankees Baseball Cap. Whilst seen in many forms, we offer the classic Yankees design, fitted with a velcro strap and made from 100% cotton to provide extra comfort.

If a cap is not for you, however, there are a multitude of other styles to choose from. The Fedora is particularly stylish hat, which has enjoyed something of a renaissance in recent years. This Fedora Hat is styled in the traditional way, being creased lengthwise down the crown and pinched in the front on both sides. Available in both black and white, the white hat with a black trim would be particularly suited to this time of year. Worn with a jacket or fitted shirt, this would be a great hat for summer garden parties.

For those who enjoy filling their summer days in the garden or walking, the Cargo Hat with UPF50 Protection provides a practical and affordable option. It is made with a towelling sweat band with mesh lining for extra comfort and fitted with an elasticated drawcord to easily adjust size. It also offers UPF50 protection against sunlight, an essential considering the current climate!

Lastly, an ideal hat if you’re working in the sun all day. This Folding Legionnaire Hat is made from 100% plush cotton. With a three section fold-up peak and two eyelets on either side, this comfortable hat will keep you protected from the sun.
