Five great reasons to wear a trucker cap in Summer

Five great reasons to wear a trucker cap in Summer

Trucker caps have long been a versatile accessory that is both stylish and practical. While we believe trucker caps are a style of hat that you can wear all year long, trucker caps are especially popular in the summer months. 

Whether you’re wearing one to keep the sun out of your eyes, disguising a bad hair day, or just adding some extra style to your outfit, there are so many benefits to wearing trucker caps in summer. In this article, we’ll take a closer look at why you’ll want to be pulling out your trucker cap more often in the warmer months. 

Protect your face from the sun 

Let’s start with the most obvious reason to wear a trucker cap in the warmer months - protection from the elements. It’s no secret that wearing a trucker cap (or any hat for that matter) is a great choice to help protect your delicate facial skin from the harsh aussie sun. Don’t forget to use sunscreen as well for an extra layer of protection.  

Shield your eyes 

Trucker caps are great for shielding your eyes from the sun as well. Our eyes are super sensitive and need extra protection from harmful UV rays. Sunglasses are always good - but you can protect your face even further by wearing a high-quality trucker cap as well. Be sure to check out our collections here. 

Regulate your body temperature 

Did you know trucker caps can help to keep you cooler in summer too? The mesh fabric at the back of a trucker cap provides breathability and airflow to your scalp, helping you to feel cooler while wearing your hat. Some people don’t like wearing hats in summer because their heads get too hot, but that’s not a problem with a trucker cap! 

Interestingly, trucker caps can also help you to preserve heat in the cooler months too. Is there anything they can’t do? 

Accentuate your personal style 

Trucker caps are a great way to accentuate your personal style and make a bold statement this summer. Trucker caps often feature catchy and interesting slogans such as our ‘All Bull No Shit’ collection and ‘Unstopabull’ trucker cap collection. 

Or if slogans aren’t your thing, you can always stick with a classic logo on your trucker cap in your favourite colour. 

Trucker caps can be great conversation starters 

One benefit of wearing trucker caps in summer is that you could end up making some new friends! How often have you worn a stylish trucker cap to a barbecue or friend’s party only to have someone comment on how much they like your chosen headwear? 

Trucker caps can be a great way to break the ice and strike up a conversation with somebody new. So next time you see someone wearing a cool trucker cap, don’t forget to compliment them!
