Hats go back millenia, with ancient evidence pointing to early humans wearing hats possibly as early as 20,000 years ago. In the middle ages, hats were used as status symbols among both men and women. Over time, upper-class women's hats became lavish works of art with feathers and jewels sewn to them.
As fun as it would be to wear towering monstrosities featuring gigantic feathers and lots of netting, at thredUP we prefer a more modern approach. Our one-of-a-kind girls' hats have plenty of unique features like yarn baubles, ear flaps, flower decals, and great patterns. Plus, they're far more practical than those mad hats of old. Shopping for a hat for a special girl? Find your (and her!) thrill right here at thredUP.
Girls' summer hats look great, and they help protect a girl's face and eyes from the harsh summer sun. Most parents know the value of putting sunscreen on kids, but kids run around and get dirty, and sometimes that sunscreen wipes off. A cute hat your kid has picked out, though? She'll be proud to show off her fashion sense, and you can be glad her skin has some sun protection.
Bucket hats always look great in the summer. Popular baby and children's retailer Polarn O. Pyret has wide-brimmed bucket hats specifically designed to offer sun protection. When your girls are younger, pop a Polarn O. Pyret sun hat on their heads to keep the sun from scalding. For heavy play days and older girls, baseball caps and visors will stay on active kids the best.
Who doesn't love winter hats? From ear flaps to knit caps, winter hats serve the double purpose of keeping us warm and looking great. Going out in the snow is much easier with your head protected, and at thredUP you'll find lots of attractive girls' hats that your kids will want to wear.
Don't worry about matching the hats with girls' gloves or girls' scarves. The easiest way to deal with winter wear for the kids is to have lots of options and cycle through them. Instead, focus on fashions or colors your girls like to wear, and aim for those when shopping at thredUP for winter accessories.
Sometimes you want a hat just because, and that's where the fun styles you'll find at Old Navy and Justice come into play. Perhaps girls don't expressly need a hat with sequins or bows or the characters from their favorite shows displayed front and center, but fashion is supposed to be fun. After all, Marlene Dietrich rocked a top hat, and the royal family wears hats constantly. Shop for fun hats at thredUP and let your girls get in on some of that expressive hat action.
