Looking A’Head’ to Women’s 2021 Hat Trends

Farewell 2020 & Hello 2021 Women’s Hat Styles

After nearly a year of quarantine, whereby stylists, fashion gurus, and clothing aficionados have had plenty of time to virtually curate their up and coming look, we predict the new year will bring new lively expressions of dress and accessories. After months of cozy wear, online shopping, and isolation, people are ready to showcase their style in social settings! Post holidays and pre-fashion week, the media is chomping at the bit to share which statement pieces will matter, and we have the inside scope on which quality handmade hats will perfect each look. 

Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Cosmopolitan, and many more women’s fashion magazines have shared their spring 2021 runway insights and we have a few notes to add. From sleek angular fedoras that compliment every oversized collar, denim or shirt you own to seriously chic wide-brimmed hats that will accentuate your summery floral motifs, if you are looking for the best hats on the market, then this is your guide to a new tailored style in the new year. We are looking a’head’ (pun intended) in hat fashion to determine what is trending now and what will be booming in 2021.

Tie Dye & Varying Hat Styles with More or Less Color 

Let’s be honest, 2020 felt a little dark. To counter that, designers are adding every color of the rainbow into their new clothing lines. Bold, bright, and tie dye are making a comeback from the 70s and 80s to help spread a little cheer with their bright hues. If a hat with more color is what you are looking for, the Women’s Summit Fedora or the Motown Felt Fedora in sage or sangria would look amazing with a tie dye accent piece. However, if your outfit needs an accessory to help mute all the colors while still being a statement piece then the Marlow Bronze Oval Top Hat or Bayou Cowboy Hat in vino, brown, or grey may be a better match. Opt for color to brighten the mood and balance your options with the perfect hat.  

Statement Collars & Women’s Top Hats

Simple button down shirts are getting a facelift with statement collars that accentuate the neck and everything above it, thus making hats must have accessories. Oversized collars with ruffles, trim, and classic black, white, and neutral contours are absolutely perfect for a sheek top hat. Add to the Victorian aesthetic in a big way with the Lush Top Hat featuring a veil of black lace and obsidian plumage, or keep it a little more subdued with the Voodoo Bloomer Top Hat with a corseted hat band. Femine yet strong is the overall attitude you’ll get from these options. 

Cool Khaki & Fine Leather Hats

Tailored blazers, sweater vests, and sequins are getting paired with lighter shades of oversized khaki slacks and a fine leather hat would perfectly top off the classic look. If a clean cut appeal is your target, pair with Gigi Pip Arlow Straw Fedora Hat  in a universally flattering shape. If you’re going for a more playful or summery look then the Valencia Sun Hat and the Women’s Player Fedora are your best bet. Lastly, if you resonate more with the rustic allure of the west, wear khaki with the Women’s Cyclone Cowboy Hat  in firewater, burnt honey or cobblestone colors. The fine leather will accentuate the earthtones, while also adding a tinge of mystique.  

Oversized Denim & Women’s Fedoras

Comfort has been relished in during 2020 and 2021 fashion not only recognizes that, but designers are embracing it with their oversized denim pants and button down shirts. If skinny jeans were never really your jam then look ahead to these loungy styles and pair them with a lace shirt, luxe bra top, or chic button down blouse. Regardless of your favorite top and bottom combo the Blackjack Vegan Pork Pie Fedora or the Women’s Bushwick Felt Fedora Hat will finalize your relaxed yet appealing aesthetic.   

Floral Motifs & Dainty Day Dresses with Straw Hats

Floral prints and day dresses are going to be prolific this spring as the sun starts to shine a little brighter. To protect your head and neck from the oncoming rays, accessorize with the classic palm Cozumel Sun Hat or the wide-brimmed Women’s Traveler Sun Hat to compliment your attire. Their lightweight and breathable construction are noticeable come the warmer months, as is their playful allure. 

Netting & Leather Catches More than the Eye

According to Harper’s Bazaar well-placed netting is said to satisfy our desire for purely aesthetic pleasures. This statement, on and off the runway, not only shows a little skin but it highlights a raw, almost risque style as it presents texture with more daring garments. To add an ounce of attitude to the already sexy look, we suggest pairing your netting with the bomber grey leather Women’s Ultra Unbanded Hat, like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman, or the Women’s El Dorado Top Hat with a contrasting band of lock rings and braces for more of an edge. If you’re looking for even more of an accent piece, then the Women’s Marlow True Grit Top Hat will fuel your fancy with its dark cowboy essence and top notch quality construction. 

2021 Hat Trends to Get Excited About

Be at the forefront of 2021’s vivacious fashion movement by showcasing your unique, yet classic style as social gatherings reconvene. Compliment your new look with a quality handcrafted hat that will accentuate this year’s trends and last you a lifetime. Whether your overall style is clean and classic, raw and rustic, or edgy and chic, American Hat Makers has the perfect hat for you that will make you feel a’head’ of the curve.
