Mum always told you to wear your hat in the summer, so just because you’re a big facial hair growing man now, doesn’t mean mum wasn't right. Hats are super important for your health throughout the summer but they are also a style essential, there’s so many different styles for different guys, below are three you could try and a few outfit suggestions to go with them!
Snapbacks came on the scene a few years back, whilst they aren't something I can personally wear without looking like a kid hoping for Jay-Z to sign me off of YouTube, loads of guys can pull them off. They’re great for keeping the sun off your head and face whilst living it up in Marbz (I hate myself for that z but I’m leaving it there) and they add a bit of style with your swim shorts, tee and flip flops, this Nike SB Icon cap is pretty cool and you can pick it up here for just £28!!
Puritan style hats are really having a moment - the style, worn traditionally by puritans is super popular for stylish men. Available in a range of colours, this Topman Puritan Hat in Camel can be picked up for £20. I would personally wear this with skinny jean shorts, some boat-esque shoes and a smart casual shirt for an evening out in a mediterranean city. You can check it out here!
This Contract Panel Cap from New Look has sort of indie styles, you couldn't see mainstream guys in this, it’s definitely cool and could be rocked with some vintage inspired baggy shirts, ripped jean shorts and maybe even some Adidas sneakers, this is perfect for a really chilled daytime look, chilling around the pool or on the beach for sure. This, quite frankly, is a bloody bargain at just £4 - click here to check it out!
