Glastonbury may have been and gone, but there are plenty more festivals on the horizon, where your headgear needs to be as practical as it is stylish. US brand Sunday Afternoons has a range of hats available in the UK that can help keep you protected from the diverse weather conditions often expected at UK festivals!!
The cowgirl/boy style never goes out of fashion so the Tahoe (RRP £35.95) hat is a classic buy and will serve you well for when the forecast looks good. 100% raffia, yet still UPF 50+ this lightweight hat is fun and comfortable.
Add a splash of colour to your festival wardrobe with a Sunset hat (RRP £28.95), available in a range of shades, these hats are UPF 50+ and the strap means you won’t lose it in the crowds. Also it folds away easily so you can shove it into your rucksack and it will still keep its shape.
The Cayman (RRP £27.95) is your classic fedora, that suits both men and women equally. It's a very cool hat both in terms of style but also its lightweight fabric and wicking sweatband.
As we all know, not all festivals are sunshine and flowers, often our boots get muddy, clothes get damp and we struggle to keep a dry head. The Quest hat (RRP £35.95) is still UPF50+ but has the added bonus of being water and stain resistant.
Sometimes you just want a funky looking cap, designed by Mexico City artist Carlos del Rio, the Artist Series Truckers have strategic crown ventilation, wicking sweatband and adjustable sizing, so should be the most comfortable cap you will find. We love the Paradise Artist Series Trucker (RRP 27.95).
And don't forget the kids, we have a range of hats that are perfect for mini festival goers, this will shield them from both sun and rain - all hats have UPF50+, are soft and easy to pack. Our favourites include, the Infant Sunsprout for teeny heads, Kids Play hat and Kids Clear Creek Boonie.
