Accessories from Daimaru. Swimwear by Brian Rochford. Persol sunglasses. HATS. Those curious head toppers that appear with great regularity in Melbourne during the spring racing carnival, are finally becoming accepted as everyday wear. Fashion aside, men and women are recognising that hats are possibly the best natural protection against the sun. The Anti-Cancer Council of Victoria said a recent survey found that hats were the second most popular form of protection behind sunscreens. In 1990 only 29 per cent said they wore a hat for protection. Surprisingly, before 1989 it was men. not women, who were the main wearers of hats. In the past three years that figure has evened out. One of the biggest problems facing the Anti-Cancer Council and milliners alike is persuading people to wear hats the reality is that most feel too self-conscious. And milliner Julie Fleming says that men and women remain reluctant to don a hat for everyday wear. "They're still using hats for special occasions, for taking to the beach or for things like outdoor barbecues, but I find most A hat for protection or simply to look good? With a little thought combining the two is easy. JAN PHYLAND reports. Illustration: JENNIFER BOWMAN people are not wearing hats as a matter of course," she said. As for the most popular hats this summer, Ms Fleming says her customers are going for color. "I am selling a lot of multi-colored sun hats that feature four or five different colors. I have also done two-toned hats in brights, like red and yellow, that are really colorful, or in natural straws that are decorated with big straw bows." She said most people didn't like too much detailing on hats, which is why one of her best selling hats continues to be the simple rafia style. Also popular this summer are the fabric hats, not unlike the old fishermen's hats. "I am doing these in fabrics like chambray and denim and they are so popular for the beach. They can be packed and taken to the beach, popped over wet hair and even washed. They are also great for shading the face." Encouraging news too for the Anti-Cancer Council Ms Fleming says most of her customers do buy hats for protection against the sun: "They are really conscious of needing a cover." But what to look for when buying a hat. The Anti-Cancer Council has released a number of guidelines that may help people. The hat should protect the face. ears, top of the head and back of the neck. It should stay on your head as much as possible, be comfortable and not interfere with your activities. It should never limit your vision. Ms Fleming says a good hat should "fit like a glove". "No-one buys a hat from me without having it fitted to suit the individual. I even add a fitted band to my Panama hats to make sure they fit really well." A hat pin or chin strap is invaluable for windy conditions where a broad hat is needed for protection. The legion-aire style (with a flap to protect the back of the neck) is more suited for wear while playing active sports. (One experienced yachtsman, tired of losing too many hats at sea, sewed a piece of string to the back of his hat and hung the tape down the inside back of his clothes. This is also a good idea for children.) Choose a hat made of closely-woven fabric or fibre. Possibly the best rule to remember is that if you can see through It so can the sun. Loosely woven straw hats that create a dappled pattern on the wearer's face is letting through too much UVR. L! The original Panama hat is available at Julie Fleming's millinery shop, 12 Claremont Avenue, Malvern (509 4368). IKE fashion, hat styles come and go with great , regularity. And like clothes, the true 1 classics are the only styles that actually survive the test of time. The Panama is such a hat. First worn in the early 1900s, the Panama has always been made from lightly-colored and tightly-woven straw from the Carloduvica palmata plant found in Ecuador and nearby countries. It derived its name in 1906 when American President Theodore Roosevelt wore one during a tour of the Panama Canal. Milliner Julie Fleming actually imports her Panama hats from Ecuador and says the style is one of her best sellers. Much of its success lies In the fact that the Panama can be folded and rolled, which makes It ideal for travelling. Ms Fleming's Panama hats, which sell for $92, come In their own boxes. Ms Fleming said the Panama was particularly popular with men, not only for themselves, but as a gift for their wives. "And they are really good for sun protection."
