Cotton hats come in various styles and one of the most popular is the fisherman’s hat. Its recognizable design is timeless and remains a favorite not just among seafarers but fashion-conscious men and women alike. These hats usually come in the neutral colors of navy, white and black but they are available in a variety of colors and even prints.
For women, a khaki or white fisherman hat would look great when paired with a simple fitted white tee or tank top and baggy cargo pants or low cropped pants with flared legs. Complete your casual getup with a pair of gladiator sandals or some other white strappy leather flats.
For men, a white fisherman’s hat is the perfect accessory to top off an outfit consisting of a pair of knee-length shorts and a matching short-sleeved shirt. Put on a pair of white boat shoes or sneakers and you have a casual but sharp look that is perfect for various weekend activities.
Another style of cotton hat that you can wear is the golf hat, which has a fun design that is made even funkier by all the available patterns and colors. A plaid golf cap matches a punk getup while a neutral-colored one will match a preppy outfit.
Women can achieve the preppy look using a golf-cap style cotton hat by wearing it with a polo shirt, a nice pair of city shorts and canvas sneakers. A cotton golf cap worn with tailored khakis, a button-down shirt and loafers will do the trick for men.
Other pretty choices in cotton hats are bucket hats and knitted hats, which can all add a touch of whimsy to your outfit. Of course, baseball caps never go out of fashion and you have countless designs to choose from in this category. A baseball cap may be ordinary but depending on its design, it can be a nice addition to your wardrobe.
For the summer, women can exude celebrity chic with large brimmed summer cotton hats. Not only will this hat protect your face and eyes from the sun, it is also incredibly stylish. Rimmed cotton hats are also available for men. When starting your hat collection, buy the plain and neutral-colored ones first. You will find that they easily complement many of your wardrobe pieces.
