It's festival season and this summer's outfits are in full form. Every year the trends change and it's out with the old and in with the new. But one fashion form that we see year after year and in many different shapes and colors, is the headwear.

Hats protect us from the sun and will, therefore, never go out of style. Headbands come in such a variety of weight and style that you can always find something to go with your outfit of choice. 

The first major rock festival was the Monterey International Pop Festival held in Monterey, CA in 1967. Festivals provide us with a way to indulge in our innermost fashionista desires. They allow us the freedom to do so without as much judgment as everyday life. They're a great way to show off style, in comfort.

With Coachella in full-effect right now, and Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, and Governors Ball right around the corner, there are many a hats to be seen ahead.

But what will they be? What festival headwear will be making statements in 2019? Keep reading to find out 5 of the headwear trends that will define this year.

1. The Baseball Cap

There are too many hats to group together, especially when they each make their own statements. One hat that we can say with confidence will NEVER go out of style, is the classic baseball cap. 

Baseball caps have been making a suave comeback in recent years with so many new styles on the market. You could opt for a leopard print to spice up a muted outfit or go with a cap that has a NEON pop to make a bold statement. 

Either way, you'll keep your face protected in comfort. And if you end up dancing the day away or playing a game of duck, duck goose, you can tighten it to make sure it doesn't fly away. It's the perfect festival hat!

2. The Headband

If you've got it, hair can be your everything at Coachella. Every year, celebrities and cool citizens alike opt for beach-like waves or bold hues that compliment their outfits and character. 

Adding a headpiece to your outfit can be the ultimate addition to your festival look. This year, we're expecting everything from top-knot headbands to metal chain pieces.

There's no wrong choice, as long as you feel comfortable in what you're rocking. If your outfit is loud, opt for a more subtle headpiece. But if your headpiece is your statement piece, don't be afraid to go bold!

3. The Scrunchie

If you want to talk about the ultimate comeback in fashion, let's talk about the scrunchie! Did you know that the scrunchie was invented by nightclub singer Rommy Revson

Apparently, she was tired of damaging her hair with harsh plastic and metal. Noticing how comfortable the fabric-covered elastic of her sweatpants was, she decided to sew some fabric onto an elastic. 

Formerly associated with teenage angst and immaturity, the scrunchie is now a staple for celebrities and politicians alike.

If you want to incorporate this timeless treasure into your festival outfit, opt for velvet or vegan leather to make a statement. You can wear it in your hair in a low ponytail or keep it on your wrist for when your hair gets too hot. 

Bring a few and hand them out to your friends as party favors. 

4. The Sequin Hood

We all love and know hoodies. They offer comfort and coverage in those moments that we want to feel cozy or need a bit of discretion.

The best part of a hoodie is the hood. But summer festivals are way too hot for hoodies. Plus, festivals are a time for showing off our trendy outfits and the last thing we want to do is cover up completely.

But what if you could have the hood without the hoodie? The answer is, you can! Check out our sequin hoodies for men and women! They're the perfect addition to your festival attire. You can put it on when you want to be a little mysterious or when the sun goes down and a nice breeze is all around. 

Sequins never go out of style and they add the perfect flare to any festival outfit. Check out ours! When you're not wearing it, you can hook it to your pants or purse.

5. The Wide-Brimmed Hat

Wide-brimmed hats can be floppy or straw, providing you with all the comfort and sun protection while you're enjoying some of your favorite tunes with your favorite people at your favorite festival.

They're the most versatile of headwear. Floppy hat outfits can be bohemian, comfortable, and sexy all at the same time. Opt for a straw hat option, especially if you know it will be extra hot.

You could go with a suede fedora to compliment the fringe on a dress or your manly cowboy boots. Hats will be a staple at festivals from now until forever as they provide protection and comfort, all while complimenting the style of a variety of outfits.
