Music and fashion go together like Kanye and Kanye. So it’s only natural that fashion hats have become a staple at music festivals around the world! From Coachella to Splendour; if your headwear doesn’t coordinate with your outfit, did you even go? What’s more, our Australian sun certainly doesn’t rest over the winter months – so it’s a great excuse to be sun smart.
The most popular trend amongst young females on the festival scene, has to be the boho look. This has led to a huge demand of wool boho hats from stores over the last few years. From bucket hats to large floppy sun hats, as long as it has a brim, you’re good to go. For this style, colour is key. Neutral tones are always a safe option, although coloured hats are a great way to spot a friend at a crowded festival. With this style, the more accessories the better. Feathers, leather bands, brass buckles; these examples are what makes these hats unique and iconic for a festival look.
It’s no denying that men are becoming more fashion conscious. And with the realisation that a hat provides portable shade for their heads, males are cottoning-on that hats are a great addition to their festival attire. Fedora hats a la Bruno Mars are a popular go-to, as well as its older brother; the Panama hat. These styles aren’t limited to men either; ladies who are looking for a more edgy, hipster look are also getting on board the trend for festival season.
Let’s talk fabrics. You really can’t go wrong with either straw or wool/acrylic when ordering wholesale festival hats. Keeping in line with the natural textures, neutral colours have also seen a rise in popularity. Beige, tan, browns & creams make it much easier for people to seamlessly pull their outfit together. If you are looking for wholesale bags for festival season, crochet shoulder bags, or leather backpacks are sure to complement the festival look.
We can’t talk about festivals, and forget about country music! Of course, you’d be hard pressed not to spot a cowboy hat in the crowds. Cowboy hats can be seen in suede, straw or leather to complement those country tunes. As temperatures soar in Australian country towns, so does the demand for these lightweight, iconic Western hats.
We’ve talked previously about the amazing benefits of promotional merchandise, and festival-goers are a great audience to have on your side. Not only are you exposing your brand to a huge array of music lovers, people will also share their latest festival fashion finds through social media to the masses! With the ever-growing reach of Snapchat and Instagram comes inadvertent free branding. This means that ordering amazing wholesale hats and accessories is more important than ever for businesses.
