Here at Gigi Pip, one of our favorite spring activities is picnicking. Theres nothing better than being in a beautiful place with yummy treats + good friends. We've put together the full guide: from perfect picnic outfits to all the essentials to bring along.
Here are a few ideas for a perfect outfit + Gigi Pip hat:
Outfit #1 is perfect for the dress enthusiast + adding the sneakers keeps things casual. We topped of the look with our Dahlia in white from our new Spring Collection.
Outfit #2 is focused on cream tones. This fit really makes the River in ivory shine. Sunnies + straw hat is perfect for stylish sun protection.
Outfit #3 keeps things comfortable + neutral. Sticking to one color pallet is eye catching but not overbearing! We placed our new hat, the River in oak, with this outfit and we loooooove it!
Outfit #4 has the perfect spring elements to it. We love the texture that the scarf + hand bag add to this outfit. And who could pass on a perfect pair of overalls? The final touch - the linen cap - really seals the deal. This outfit is what spring, picnic dreams were made of.
Here is a quick list of our fav picnic essentials!

Women's hat sizes are fairly intuitive. The average women's head size measures around 57cm. If you are unsure of your hat size the Gigi Pip small/medium hat would be the best starting point. The small/medium hat size is made to fit 57cm + can be adjusted down to 55cm. If you know you have a slightly larger head go with the 59cm size. As far as Gigi Pip sizing goes this is a medium/large, made to fit a 59cm head size + then can be adjusted down to 57cm. The largest size Gigi Pip offers is a 61 cm, labeled as an XL, like our other sizes the 61 can be sized down to 59 cm. For women who feel they have a slightly smaller head than normal we recommend an XS which begins at 55cm + can be sized down to 53 cm. In select styles we offer kids sizing which begins at 53 cm + can be adjusted to 51 cm.
In short- the most common hat size is a S/M (57cm). While this is the most common hat size, remember that properly sizing your Gigi Pip hat will ensure the best fit.
There are two primary methods of measuring your hat size + are based on the style in which you wear your hat. You will need to take both measurements (shown below) + then use the larger of the two measurements to determine your hat size. Once you've received your hat, you can decide how you would like to wear it + adjust your hat size accordingly.
TIP: If you don't have a textile measuring tape, use a string or piece of yarn to measure the distance around your head. After you have marked the yarn around your head, lay it out flat on the ground or table + measure the straightened out piece of yarn with a measuring stick or regular measuring tape.
Adjustable Inner Band Instructions
Flip up the sweatband to find the Velcro tab + pull to tighten. Velcro the ribbon back in place to secure your desired fit. The adjustable band can adjust the hat up to 5 cm when necessary! Some helpful tips about our adjustable inner band-
Hat Sizing Tape Instructions
Hat sizing tape is an additional option for tightening the fit of your hat. Place the foam tape on the inside of your hat, behind the sweatband, with the sticky side facing towards the hat wall. Wrap the tape completely around the hat for maximum size decrease or cut tape length in half for a more moderate decrease. Size to fit prior to removing the adhesive cover. Once the fit is correct, remove the adhesive cover, press firmly into place, and wa-lah.
