Youth Hat Trends: Spring/Summer 2019

By Emily Potter on Jun 13, 2018 @ 8:00AM CDT

Today, we bring you Youth Hat Trends, the third article in the Spring/Summer 2019 style series.

As we know, this season has three overarching trends.

The first style for the S/S ’19 season is full of earth tones inspired by natural elements like stone, marble, and water. 

The next trend consists of bright, primary colors with military muses, glitter, and a touch of the 1980s. 

The final style focuses on pastel hues with iridescent and rainbow finishes that create a mood enhancing response. 

Check out our blog from the previous weeks where we covered women’s and men’s styles. Next week, we will go over athleisure headwear, so don’t forget to check back. 

It’s not too late to review and prepare for Autumn/Winter 2018 as well._JNK9982
