Brixton’s Traveling Headwear Essentials
Heading on a summer adventure? You better not forget your travel sun hat! Brixton's got your back with our must-have traveling headwear essentials. From the classic travel straw hat to the trendy snapback, and everything in between, we've got the perfect hat to keep you looking stylish and feeling comfortable no matter where your travels take you.
Reminiscent of island adventures and tropical beach vacations, this hat is perfect for those hot and humid climates, where the sun beats down on you relentlessly. The breathable straw material allows air to circulate, keeping your head cool and comfortable while adding an effortlessly chic touch to any outfit.
Our Wesley Fedora is one of the best straw hats for travel, with its wide brim and teardrop crown. It's packable too, making it easy to toss in your luggage without worrying about it getting deformed during your time on the road or in the plane.
For more unpredictable climates, a bucket hat is a versatile choice that can handle any weather. Come rain or shine, a bucket hat will keep you dry, cool, and protected.
Our Jasper Packable Bucket Hat is the ultimate holiday headwear showstopper. With its gorgeous colors and patterns, crafted from breathable cotton, it’s the perfect accompaniment to a playful matching short and button-down set. And, thanks to its neckties, it won’t budge in even the windiest weather or on the wildest adventures.
Recently regaining plenty of popularity, the snapback is a trendy headwear option that's perfect for the fashion-forward traveler. This hat is great for warm climates where your face needs a little extra coverage, or on adventure trips where a securely fastened, lightweight hat is crucial.
One of our favorite options in our range of snapbacks is the Crest MP Snapback with a Bureo NetPlus® visor made from recycled fishing nets. Not only is the hat super breathable and light but it’s also made of sustainable materials so you can keep cool and look cool with a clear conscience.
The best hat for European travel is a hat that's stylish and functional. Enter the fedora, a classic piece that exudes sophistication and charm. It's the perfect accessory for morning strolls along the Seine or enjoying a lazy lunch on the Amalfi Coast.
One of our favorite choices for a sophisticated look is the stunning Leigh Felt Feroda. Its flat brim offers plenty of sun protection while its nude felt material makes it ideal for matching to nearly any outfit.
How to Stay Cool (Literally) With the Perfect Hat
Slaying those summer adventures is a must-do, but the sweltering summer heat can easily make it unbearable to explore without the right headwear. Whether you plan on a beach vacation or a summer spent in Europe, Brixton has the perfect travel hat for you.
Hot and Sunny Climate
For a hot and sunny climate, choose a wide-brim travel hat that provides shade for your face and neck. A wide-brim sun hat like our Messer Lifeguard Hat or Field Sun Hat is a great choice for a lazy day next to the pool.
Beach and Tropical Destinations
When traveling to beaches and tropical destinations, opt for a hat made from natural materials like straw that can withstand exposure to saltwater and sand.
For cooler climates, choose a hat that provides a little more warmth and insulation such as our Messer Adventure Fedora or the Messer Utility Fedora. Both are ideal for windy or chilly locations that require a more cozy headwear choice.
Travel Hat Etiquette
Hats often form an essential part of any travel wardrobe. However, not all holiday destinations are equally hat-friendly, so before packing for your next travel adventure, consider the following rules of hat etiquette:
- Always choose an appropriate hat for the occasion
- Avoid blocking the view of others with your hat when in crowded spaces
- Be mindful of cultural norms regarding headwear when traveling to different countries, especially if you’re visiting religious or culturally significant sites
And if headwear forms a big part of your travel packing plan, don’t forget your Done Proper Fedora Travel Case to keep your favorite hat looking fresh and crisp on your summer travels, and the equally stylish Beta Toiletry Bag to keep you organized.
