Annmarie O'Connor: 12 stylish hats to protect your head from sunburn

Bucket hats for summer sunshine.

It can't be helped. Using the word ‘sunny’ in conjunction with phrases like ‘all week’ or ‘high temperatures’, may cause lapses in common sense, commonly known as sunburn.

Releasing bare limbs from the bondage of winter woollies has that effect.

Being shady never looked so good.
