By Emily Potter on Jan 15, 2020 @ 8:00AM CST

Today, we bring you Youth Hat Trends, the third article in the Autumn/Winter 2020 style series where we talk about children’s hats.

As we know, this season has three overarching trends.

The first style for the A/W ’20 season is full of comfortable pieces made of high-quality materials consumers can count on.

The next trend consists of technical and construction aspects including exterior construction details like exposed seams and taping.

The final style focuses on updating old classic elements to better meet the modern needs of consumers.

Check out our blog from the previous weeks where we covered women’s and men’s styles. We will continue to keep you up to date with future trends biannually. So, keep an eye out later for the Spring/Summer 2021 series.

It’s not too late to review and prepare for Spring/Summer 2020 as well.Youth Trends 2020-1

Patterns

Animal prints are common. You can expect fruits and vegetables, cacti, florals, constellations, and geometric prints.

Graphics

Some common elements for girls include unicorns, rainbows, food, and landscapes. You’ll see a lot of colorful graphics inspired by the 70s, soften western themes, and positive girl power messages.Youth Trends 2020-2-1024w
