The good thing about hats is that they can be used to complement almost all outfits. The wide variety of options make it easy to get the right style and price to suit your needs. The use of hats has been around since the 60s, and it is a fashion item that doesn’t seem to get old. If you are looking to purchase your trucker hat and are wondering about the styles you could choose from as well as their uses, here is the information you are looking for.

The various trucker hat styles

Low profile hats

The first style is the low-profile hat. As the name implies, they have a low silhouette and sit close to the head since their dome is less prominent. The angle of the crown is what determines the profile of the hats with the low profile sloping away from the bill, unlike the traditional trucker hats that have almost a right angle between the crown and the bill. As such, this style of hats has a more casual touch making it one of the most common among the younger population.

Specially ordered hats

With the specially ordered trucker hats, you get your desired customization including the use of graphics and color schemes of your choosing. Most companies and organizations often use an embroidered logo on trucker hats. This is not only for identification but advertisement as well. Besides their favorably lower prices, the graphics used on them also make them popular among the youths.


This style is a perfect blend of style and use. They are ideal for use outdoors with people like hunters if they aim at blending with the surrounding. So, before settling on any camouflage trucker hat, the wearer must be aware of the color schemes in the area they wish to visit. Most of the patterns used in these hats come with 3D textures and shades of black, tan, brown and dark green.

Main uses of trucker hats

While fashion may be the only determining factor for choosing hats, trucker hats have more to offer. The following are the main uses of this type of hats.


The first one is rather obvious. It is the reason why many people wear hats – as an accessory for their outfit. The right look will depend on personal preferences as well as the outfit it is worn with. The many designs with different color schemes and styles broaden the available options to choose from. Better yet, trendy trucker hats are versatile, meaning both men and women can wear them.


As mentioned before, another use of trucker hats is advertising. This type is usually given out for free during promotions with the aim or creating awareness to a business brand or an organization’s objectives. The good thing about using these hats for advertising is that they can be designed for a target group and are easily noticed when worn.


Trucker hats are also used to protect the wearer from UV rays. The bill part of the hat does this job, and should one need more shade from the sun, they will more likely use the hats with wider and curved bills.
