Each hat of the ones that 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, for example the bucket. hats, fisherman’s hats and wide-brimmed hats that will no doubt all go very well with the ugly sneaker generation.
Summer hats are an essential accessory to protect yourself from the sun and to be fashionable
Some of the trendy summer hats in 2020 are inspired by vintage hats for men like Panama hats, newboy hats and military hats, while bell hats have emerged as a vintage hat 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 comes in many different models and styles
Natural materials and summer straw hats will be present in all accessory categories for summer 2020, so it is natural for straw hats to be a big fashion trend for the warm season..
Straw hats from Dior, for example, are coming back in dark blue or straw beige and can be woven in a tighter and more opaque way or in a looser and more transparent way. These are often straw bucket hat designs 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 like bangs instead of looking unfinished..
The cloche hat can be made of many different materials and can be different colors, so just choose the one you like the most
Summer cloche hats
Those of you whose hearts belong to the fashions of the 20s and 30s will love the resurgence of bell hats as a trend in hats for summer 2020. And this season, bell hats are very fun and enjoyable with them. very tall designs and lots of embellishments.
The cloche hat is also perfect to wear also by those who love the streetstyle
Cividini’s cloche hat can even be called a bit silly with an oversized design covered in layers of fringes and ribbons. At Louis Vuitton, white is the color of choice for simple bell hats with just a hint of brim. And lately, at Anteprima we can find some little straw bell hats.
Soft materials are preferred for bucket style hats in summer
Soft Bucket Hats
Bucket hats are the escape hats for summer 2020, but not just any material. Soft materials dictate trends by transforming what we called ‘cushy fashion’ into something very modern.
Naturally, the bucket hats at Anna Sui are adorable, made from the same kind of materials the brand used for their collection. This means that the hats are very delicate, made of white eyelet fabric, brightly colored organza, floral tweed etc..
The bucket hat can also be very elegant: like this one made in white lace
At Fendi, the bucket hats are also made to follow their collection which means that most of the hats have been covered in green prints inspired by the jungle. Crochet is also very trendy this season, and it is represented by colorful crochet bucket hats at Kate Spade New York. Summer bucket hats can also be found at the brands Valli, Michael Kors, Peter Pilotto and Marc Jacobs..
No matter your style, in summer 2020, the bucket hat is part of almost every modern look.
Old-school brimmed hats
Panama hats, bowlers hats and options in between – the 2020 hat trends give us plenty of options for vintage hats for men that become unisex hats for top fashionistas to wear..
The Celine brand blurred the lines of the hats convention with their design of brimmed hats that have the same brim length as the brim of Panama hats but with the round end of bowler hats..
Old-school hats are back in fashion for summer 2020
At Chanel, we present both all-white and all-black bowler hats, although some of their hats are embellished with a little color from brooches in floral-print materials. 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 wide-brimmed designs are also present at Marc Jacobs and include both bowlers and Panama hats..
Another trend for this summer – scarves worn around the head like a hat
A combination of 70s influence and boho-chic slants and the general increase in diversity turns scarves into fashion accessories for summer 2020 and also head accessories..
The scarf around the head creates a somewhat vintage elegance which 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, scarves from Missoni 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. The 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’s hats have double protection by covering the face and neck against both sun and snow, so if you live in a place with a lot of rain, this hat is a must-have trend for you..
This is not the first time that the Lanvin brand has shown extra long fisherman’s summer hats, but for the warmer season the brand also offers a few options in 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 which are inspired by the silhouette of fishermen, made of soft leather panels in a draped design with extra long edges that fold. The brand Alberta Feratti has also bet on this type of hats.
Summer hats with extra large visor
Much like the ‘bucket’ hats with the ball cap, the extra large brim hats have transformed the ‘mom on vacation’ look into something very modern. This summer 2020, hats will be a hit among all those who fell in love with white sneakers and boyfriend jeans..
There are a few different approaches to the wide-brimmed hat at Prada, but our favorite is the one with the rustic straw cap contrasted with a very glamorous gold-colored leather edge..
Rokh’s extra large visor hats are made of leather which instantly makes them look a little more stylish. In addition to bucket hats, we also see summer hats with wide brim at Fendi which are often made with similar prints giving fans of the brand a few silhouettes of hats to choose from..
Real bucket hats
Sometimes fashion designers take it literally. This is why in summer 2020 we will even be able to see real bucket hats or “buckets” in the collections of certain brands. Among these brands is for example the Anteprima brand which shows a straw bucket hat which is shaped like a trapped bucket. At Nina Ricci yellow plastic was used for an even more resilient design.
Hats embellished with feathers
With so many feather embellishments in the spring collections in 2020, it makes sense for fashion designers to put a little feather on the hats for summer 2020. At Prabal Gurung, the little hats in bright colors were embellished with thin feathers tied all over the crown of the hat. Feathers are also used throughout the Maison Marignela hat collection, but here the feathers are a bit more voluminous and showy. Even at Moschino the feathers are also present on the hats in the form of a black fascinator adorned with glamor.
Newsboys hats and berets
Newsboy hats are back in a crossroads where the 2000s meet the 1910s, becoming a trend among many in 2020 inspired by men’s fashion. Newsboy summer hats are folkloric and casual, but not as casual as ball caps, making them the perfect accessories for those whose wardrobe falls somewhere in between the two styles..
The newsboys hats were very noticeable at Dior, in tan color with more solid edges and the brand name printed on the front of the hats. Roland Mouret’s newsboy hats and berets succeed in conveying the working class history of this type of hat, made from printed burlap that gives them the appearance of reused bags. At Anteprima, on the runways models wore newsboy-style berets made of straw with the hood part slightly bent to rest on the brim..
Hats for spring and summer 2020 also include baseball hats, but not as much as in years past, showing that these type of hats are best worn with more casual and casual looks..
Everyone’s favorite brand who loves Off-White streetstyle flair shows off a distressed pink ball cap printed with the label’s hand logo. At Stella McCartney, the baseball hat approach is with a hook and visor made of faux leather. The brimmed hats from Salvatore Ferragamo are also with leather edges and a scarf-shaped cap which 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 really 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 clean, sturdy design and straps on the brim. As for sailor caps, at Michael Kors we can see a black cap with the edge around it 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 mandatory to wear a hat with a veil only for a sad occasion. Of course, we realize that these models are not suitable for every day. But there are plenty of possibilities to create a truly modern and stylish look with the help of a veil hat..
