8. The Bucket Hat

The bucket hat style was once widely worn by Irish fisherman in the early 1900s. Obviously then a functional hat, through history it’s shifted to a chic runway-worthy accessory worn by celebrities, models and fashionistas. Though these hats do go in and out of style they are definitely “ in “ in 2020. Some of our favourites below

9. Cloche hats

10 The little ‘ uns

Hats for the little ‘uns is less of a trend and more about whatever its comfortable, cute and what they are prepared to wear. Shop:


10 Extras for fun!

The Gucci boater with metal bee was one of 2019s most coveted hats but with a price tag of $510, its not for everyone. This straw boater hat's most defining characteristic is the black grosgrain ribbon with a metal gold bee detail perched on the side so we decided to some fun broaches so you can make your own. Add scarves, broaches and ribbons to your favourite Straw, Raffia, Seagrass or bucket for a removable fun option this Spring/ Summer ! More in store !


We hope your Spring and Summer brings a lot of fun, laughs and positives and that our hats make you look and feel fabulous!
