Floppy hats are certainly nothing new, but they really seem to be catching on with toddlers and their parents these days. In fact, it seems like I’ve seen more toddlers in floppy hats now than at any point in time. So what exactly is driving this trend? Let’s discuss a couple of different aspects below.
Floppy Hats are Popular Vacation Wear
The last time that I went to the beach is when I really noticed how popular floppy hats are for children. Rather than the traditional bucket or sun hats that kids have been wearing for decades, they’ve now been replaced by floppy brims. I can’t say that I’m sorry to see less of the older sun and bucket hats because they were never really my favorites.
A Stylish Way to protect Your Toddler from the Sun
It’s always nice to have your child look cute. But floppy hats also provide the obvious functionality of protecting your toddler’s face from the sun. On a warm summer day at the beach or pool, this is especially important because the last thing you want to do is ruin your toddler’s vacation with a nasty sunburn.
So if you want your kid to look stylish in the spring and summer, floppy hats are a good accessory to add to their clothing collection. And keep in mind that many of these hats have some long-lasting value because they can fit the heads of toddlers to tweens. This is especially nice when you consider that your child can pull these hats out over the years and bring up memories of great past vacations.
