Before you hit the seas, you need to come prepared with the perfect nautical hat! Oriental Trading has several low-cost options you're sure to love, including sailor hats, bucket hats, captain hats and more. These are a big step up from the newspaper sailor hats we made as kids, and wearing them and giving them away is oh so aquatically awesome!
1. Sailor hats: The sailor hats that service members in the U.S. Navy wear are often called "Dixie Cups" because of their resemblance to the drinking cups. According to the Navy, there's only one "correct" way to wear the white, high-domed, low-rolled brim hats that have been party of uniform regulations since 1886: "Squarely on the head with the lower front edge approximately 1-1/2" inch above the eyebrows and not crushed, bent or rolled." Of course, these hats still have been worn in several different ways over the years. Pick up the perfect sailor hats for your nautical celebration, including several that you can transform into a DIY craft project!
2. Bucket hats: If you're looking for a more casual, less "military" look, how about a bucket hat?! Fold the brim down to keep your nose shaded from the sun and still look super stylin'. Check out this amazing selection of bucket hats, including many that will look great with a little bit of DIY decorating, like fabric paints or markers.
3. Captain hats: Everyone needs to know who's in charge. If it's you, then you can't go wrong with a captain's hat. With it's visor brim, it provides just as much sun protection as any other nautical cap, but it also adds just enough authority to put the wearer a step above the rest. Check out these hats if you're going to a yacht party or if you want to make it look like you are!
