Trends : what type of hat to wear to be chic in summer?
The summer 2020 hat trends are there to protect us from the sun that will soon appear in the Northern Hemisphere. Each hat of the ones we will present to you in this article will appeal to a different type of fashionista, even if the summer hats that we will see the most during the hot season will be the ‘ugly’ hats that have become fashionable again, such as the bucket hats, fisherman hats and wide visor hats which will undoubtedly all go well with the generation of ugly sneakers.
Summer hats are an essential accessory to protect yourself from the sun and to be fashionable
Some of the hats that were fashionable in 2020 are inspired by vintage hats for men like Panama hats, newboys hats and military hats, while bell hats appeared as vintage hats for women. Trends for summer 2020 also include scarves wrapped around the head in different ways and straw hats for extra sun protection and a beach look.
For summer 2020, the straw hat is very trendy and exists in lots of different models and styles
Natural materials and summer straw hats will be present in all accessory categories for the summer of 2020, so it is natural for straw hats to be a big fashion trend for the hot season.
Dior’s straw hats, for example, come back in dark blue or straw beige and can be woven tighter and more opaque or looser and more transparent. These are often straw bucket hat models or short-brimmed sun hat silhouettes. At Etro the long-brimmed straw hats are very glamorous, and the deliberately frayed edges only add to the glamorous effect, acting as bangs instead of appearing unfinished.
The bell hat can be made of several different materials and can be of different colors, so just choose the one you like the most
Summer bell hats
Those of you whose hearts belong to the fashion of the 20s and 30s will love the resurgence of bell hats which are one of the trends in hats for summer 2020. And this season, bell hats are very fun and enjoyable with very tall designs and lots of embellishments.
The bell hat is also perfect to wear also for those who love streetstyle
The bell hat from Cividini can even be described as a bit ridiculous with an oversized design covered with layers of fringes and ribbons. At Louis Vuitton, white is the color of choice for simple bell hats with just a hint of edges. And lately, at Anteprima we can find some small straw bells hats.
Soft materials are preferred for bucket style hats in summer
‘Soft Bucket’ Hats
‘Buckets’ hats are summer 2020 escape hats, but not just any material. Soft materials dictate trends by transforming what we called ‘cushions fashion’ into something very modern.
Naturally, the buckets hats at Anna Sui are adorable, made of the same type of material that the brand used for its collection. This means that the hats are very delicate, made of white fabric with eyelets, organza in bright colors, floral tweed etc.
The bucket hat can also be very elegant: like this one in white lace
At Fendi, buckets hats are also made to follow their collection which means that most hats have been covered in green prints inspired by the jungle. Crochet is also very fashionable this season and is represented by colorful crochet buckets hats at Kate Spade New York. Summer buckets hats can also be found at the Valli, Michael Kors, Peter Pilotto and Marc Jacobs brands.
Whatever your style, in summer 2020, the bucket eput hat fits in almost any modern look
Old-school brim hats
Panama hats, bowler hats and options in between – the 2020 hat trends give us a lot of options for vintage men’s hats that become unisex hats to be worn by top fashionistas.
The Céline brand blurs the lines of the hat convention with their design of brimmed hats that have the same brim length as the edges of Panama hats but with the round tip of bowler hats.
Old-school hats are back in fashion for summer 2020
At Chanel, we present bowler hats both all white and all black, even if some of their hats are embellished with a little color coming from brooches in materials with floral prints. Panama hats are also present at Emporio Armani, even if theirs are made of straws.
And if you’re the type who loves colors, the real Panama summer hats presented by Dolce & Gabanna are filled with bright colors like pink and yellow. Hats with vintage designs with wide edges are also present at Marc Jacobs and include both bowler and Panama hats.
Another trend for this summer – scarves worn around the head like a hat
A combination of the influence of the 70s and boho-chic inclinations and the general increase in diversity transforms scarves into fashion accessories for summer 2020 and also as accessories for the head.
The scarf around the head creates a slightly vintage elegance that is very pleasing to the eyes
The Missoni brand is known for its ultra soft scarves, even made of wool, but with a very light look. This season, Missoni’s scarves are worn wrapped around the head using different techniques. At Céline, the scarves are tied a little more tightly on the crown of the head, while the rest of the hair falls freely, which is certainly inspired by the 70s. Scarves are also present in the collections of Etro, Saint Laurent and Roland Mouret.
Fishing hats are also trendy, made of different materials and colors
Fisherman hats have double protection by covering the face and neck against both the sun and snow, so if you live in a place with a lot of rain, this hat is a must trend for you.
This is not the first time that the Lanvin brand has shown very long fisherman summer hats, but for the hot season, the brand also offers some options of a more moderate size, all in colors that follow well with the collection and with small buttons on the side for easier folding of the edge.
Prada also presents these modern hats that are inspired by the silhouette of fishermen, made of soft leather panels in a draped design with very long edges that fold. The Alberta Feratti brand has also bet on this type of hats.
Summer hats with extra large visor
Just like the bucket hats with the ball cap, the extra large visor hats have transformed the ‘mom on vacation’ look into something very modern. This summer of 2020, hats will be a hit among all those who have fallen in love with white sneakers and boyfriend jeans.
There are a few different approaches to the wide visor hat at Prada, but our favorite is the one with the rustic straw cap contrasted by a very glamorous gold-colored leather rim.
The hats with the extra large visor from Rokh are made of leather which instantly makes them a little more elegant. In addition to bucket hats, we also see summer hats with wide edges at Fendi which are often made with similar prints by giving fans of the brand, a few hat silhouettes to choose from.
Real bucket hats
Sometimes fashion designers take things literally. This is why in summer 2020 we can even see real buckets or “buckets” in the collections of certain brands. Among these brands is for example the brand Anteprima which shows a straw bucket hat which has the shape of a trapped bucket. At Nina Ricci yellow plastic has been used for an even more resilient design.
Embellished hats with feathers
With so many feather embellishments in the spring collections in 2020, it makes sense for fashion designers to put a few feathers on hats for summer 2020. At Prabal Gurung, small hats in bright colors were embellished with thin feathers tied all around the crown of the hat. Feathers are also used throughout Maison Marignela’s collection of hats, but here the feathers are a little more voluminous and showy. Even at Moschino feathers are also present on hats in the form of a glamor-adorned black fascinator.
Newsboy hats and berets
Newsboy hats are back in a crossover where the 2000s meet the 1910s, to become a trend among others in 2020 inspired by men’s fashion. Newsboys summer hats are folk and casual, but not as casual as ball caps, which turns them into perfect accessories for those whose wardrobe is somewhere between the two styles.
Newsboy hats were very remarkable at Dior, in tan color with more solid edges and the brand name printed on the front of the hats. Newsboy hats and berets from Roland Mouret succeed in transmitting the working class history of this type of hat, made of printed hessian which gives them the appearance of reused bags. At Anteprima, on the parades the models wore newsboy style berets made of straw with the hood part slightly folded to rest on the edge.
Hats for spring and summer 2020 also include baseball hats, but not as much as in previous years, showing that these types of hats are best worn with more casual and casual looks.
The favorite brand of everyone who loves Off-White streetstyle style shows an aged pink ball cap printed with the label’s hand logo. At Stella McCartney, the approach to the baseball hat is with a hook and a visor made of faux leather. The brimmed hats from Salvatore Ferragamo are also with leather brims and a scarf-shaped cap that is attached to the bin.
Army and navy caps
Sailor and military hats are a surprising addition for summer 2020 first of all because otherwise there won’t be many army-inspired looks this summer.
At the Max Mara brand, some of the army and navy cap models are worn over a hairstyle with tight braids. The brand combines caps with jackets that look like real uniforms with a sleek and solid design and straps on the edge. On the side of the sailor caps, at Michael Kors we can see a black cap with the brim around folded up. At Maison Martin Marignela caps and berets are theatrical.
Summer hats with veils
There is a stereotype that hats with veils symbolize sadness and tragedy. However, these hats are very elegant and feminine and it is not compulsory to wear a hat with veil only for a sad occasion. Of course, we realize that these models are not suitable for everyday use. But there are plenty of possibilities to create a truly modern and elegant look with the help of a veil hat.
