By Emily Potter on Jun 25, 2019 @ 8:00AM CDT

Today, we bring you Youth Hat Trends, the third article in the Spring/Summer 2020 style series where we talk about kids caps.

As we know, this season has three overarching trends.

The first style for the S/S ’20 season is full of recycled materials and other renewable resources that cause less harm and provide more help. With the popularity of CBD and other cannabis products. comes a rise in hemp materials. 

The next trend consists of products with a political or social message. Did you know 57% of consumers will either buy from or boycott a brand due to their beliefs?

The final style focuses on emotional connections to people and products whether they are manufactured or organic.

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 this year for the Autumn/Winter 2020 series.

It’s not too late to review and prepare for Autumn/Winter 2019 as well.
