You’ve heard the saying ‘If you want to get ahead, get a hat’, haven’t you? If only it were that easy…

Getting a hat is one thing but getting the RIGHT hat is a different matter altogether! Choosing the colour to match or complement your outfit might not be too difficult but that’s just the start. Does it suit the shape of your face – your hairstyle – or even your body shape?

If you need a bit of help here, you could go online and ask Google but be warned – you’ll get over 1.9 million results if you do! Or you could join the Girls Around Town and their guest Jenny Dickinson on Sunday morning, which rather appropriately just happens to be National Hat Day.

As a personal stylist based in Lincolnshire who’s worked as a product development technologist for two of the UK’s biggest and best-loved fashion retailers, Jenny knows all about matching people with outfits that flatter them. So who better to share a few pointers on how to make sure the hat you choose for that special occasion is the crowning glory you want it to be?

She’s even promised to bring along some of the hats she has available for hire so June, Tina and Sue can try them on for size. Tune in or listen online between 10am and 12 noon on Sunday to hear what Jenny has to say – and look out for pictures on Facebook to see how, in the words of top milliner Piers Atkinson,  a little bit of expert advice can help you to

Enjoy the hat, and make sure the hat doesn’t wear you; you wear the hat!
