How to Choose a Trucker Hat


Hats are a wonderful accessory to most outfits and it can be worn and styled by anyone. There are so many different types of hats available as well and they all have an interesting history attached to them. The trucker hat is a variant of the baseball hat with a few differences in the material and the design.

A trucker hat has a plastic mesh at the back with a foal upper. Generally, baseball caps will come in wool or cotton. The origin of trucker hats starts at rural farm stores where the name of the store was printed on the hat for promotion. The front of the trucker hat is quite broad to carry logos and promotional designs. They are worn by many celebrities and they have become something of a trend in today’s fashion. It was originally mostly truckers who wore these hats which gave birth to the name. The foam upper of this hat comes with two panels and you can wear this breathable hat during any time of the year. There are so many brands that make trucker hats so you will need to check customer reviews online when selecting a brand. This will give you an idea of the quality and how well it matches the description.

Look for hats made of strong materials so it lasts for a long time. There are so many colours and patterns you can find as well. For example darker colours such as black trucker hats will suit any outfit. The darker colours are more popular as they don’t show daily wear easily and can be paired with a variety of outfits. You can select a lighter or white coloured hat as it will look cool but you will find yourself spot cleaning it quite often. A trucker hat is not generally meant to be worn tightly around the head. It is worn in a relaxed manner. They can be a great addition to any retro outfit. Some also come with a mesh snapback that gives a bit of style to the hat.

There are also online sellers that produce custom trucker hats and you will be able to have any design or logo on the front along with a variety of colour options. You can also find trucker hats made of cotton blends that can be quite unstructured. The foam trucker hats will generally hold their shape. You need to measure the circumference of your head to see if the trucker hat is a good fit. They are usually one size fits all as it comes with a snapback but there is only a limited adjustability possible. You can then check the size chart or message the seller to get an idea of the hat size. Choosing bold colours will help you pair this with a plainer outfit elevating it instantly. You can also tone down the outfit with this and easily blend into the crowd. When trying this out at a shop, choose a hat that doesn’t sit very high on your head so as not to look disproportionate.
