Boater hats are basically the typical straw hats worn by the boater’s around the world. When the hats came back in the fashion world, the designers gave a quick spin to all the varieties of hats and in that was discovered the boater’s hat.
This hat was making rounds for beach looks and casual styles but is not here to stay or last long enough and so it is not worth investing in. Also this is just a casual hat and nothing more so it is not really talked about very often or given the importance that other hats do. So it is safe to say that this style is here today but not here to stay and you can completely skip it!
