Umbrella Hats: The Latest Eccentric Fashion Statement

Sunscreen is one of my least favourite things in the world. It’s ooey-gooey and comes with its own distinct odour. That wouldn’t sound so bad if you were describing Cinnabons or some other sticky treat, but as for sunscreen, you put that stuff on your skin.

On the other hand, it’s no fun getting cancer, or more importantly, being forced to avoid the sun all day.

And that’s where the umbrella hat (<--- that's the link to the official homepage of umbrella hats. Cool, eh?) comes into play. There are several reasons why umbrella hats are such a beloved hot banana pepper.

First of all, they bridge the gap between the indoors and the outdoors, without making you endure the horrors of sunscreen. And unlike a normal umbrella, you don’t have to constantly hold umbrella hats; they go on your head! Naturally, this fact has endeared these babies to all golfers.

However, not everyone allows themselves the privilege of enjoying these benefits. Instead, they complain about the wacky image that you take on when you don an umbrella hat. But I say that this is good news for us co-weirdos. If nobody else wants to participate in the umbrella hat trend, then we have it all to ourselves! Umbrella hats can now be fashion statements. When you wear an umbrella hat, you’re proudly screaming to the world, “I’m crazy and eccentric and there’s nothing you can do about it!”

Still not convinced? Well umbrella hats make great costumes on crazy hat day too!
Now there’s a real hot banana pepper.
