Whether you’re a hat person or not, summer is the perfect time to experiment with different accessories and styles.
A great hat isn’t just a style statement, it protects you from the sun on those long hot days and it’s no wonder why they never go out of style.
Whether you’re looking to add some great pieces to your product line or simply looking for some inspiration this summer, you’ve come to the right place. From statement sunhats to traditional flat caps, we’ve got 5 great reasons why you should be adding a hat to your wardrobe this season…
- Bucket Hat
The bucket hat has made a major comeback in the last couple of years and we’re here for it! The throwback headpiece has been seen being sported by the likes of Rihanna, Kendall Jenner and Pharrell Williams and as a result sales have rocketed. Even Ikea have got in on the action, releasing their very own version made out of their iconic bag, which sold out on the first day.
2. Floppy straw hat
If you’re jetting off somewhere hot this summer, your suitcase won’t be complete without a statement straw hat to take to the beach. No matter where your chosen destination, make sure you pack one of our statement straw hats for plenty of poolside pizazz.
The Guardian recently reported that sales in men’s headwear are up on the highstreet and the fedora is one of the most popular designs on the market. This cool, classic, versatile accessory will never go out of style and can be worn at a wedding, formal event or even at the beach.
4. Flat cap
Thanks to hit TV show Peaky Blinders, sales of old fashioned flat caps are booming. Once considered a working class men’s accessory, celebs such as Cillian Murphy, David Beckham and Tom Hardy are all leading the way for this rebooted fashion trend.
5. Baker Boy
Baker boy hats are another traditional accessory having a moment. Traditionally a mans accessory, baker boys are becoming equally as popular with female wearers with models such as Bella Hadid, Kaia Gerber and Elsa Hosk all embracing the look.
