Many (but not all) of our pirate hats are in classic tricorn hat style, which is commonly and famously associated with pirates, oftentimes being the hat of choice for such famous pirates as Captain Jack Sparrow and Captain James Hook. Other pirate hats are bicorn hats, while others still are bandanas, wraps, and head-ties, all of which feature a classic pirate style.
On occasions, a pirate hat is practical with a small brim. It could also be a tricorn hat but smaller in shape while still doing its job of protecting the head from rain and sun.
Tricorn hats were especially popular back in the day because they were useful during rainy days. These hats are essentially triangular in shape, which produce brims with turned-up portions that act like a furrow. When rain falls, the water goes to the shoulders instead of the face.
You could also pair your pirate costume with a scarf, as it is one of the most classic pieces to pair it with.
