If you're preparing to go to a Jimmy Buffett concert and you want to be ready for the tailgate or if you're headed to a beach party with a few Parrothead friends, it's a good idea to look the part. Dressing like a Parrothead isn't just to be part of the group. It's also a fun way to express yourself and get into the tropical mindset. Here are the essential accessories for any Parrothead partier. 

Hats and Headwear  
From straw hats and flower leis to elaborate parrot and shark caps, the headwear is one of the best parts of being a Parrothead and a true essential for any Parrothead. Make sure you have something that showcases why you love this lifestyle on your head. Use it as a canvas to display your passion for tropical beaches or a favorite wildlife creature. In addition to being fun, make sure it's comfortable. It's no fun to relax in an itchy hat.

Find the right hat for your party. Find the right hat for your party.

Parrotheads thrive when it's warm and sunny, so be sure to have a handy pair of sunglasses on hand to cope with the bright light. You sunglasses don't just help you achieve that Caribbean beach look - they're also critical for avoiding glare while playing fun tailgate games like ladder ball or beer pong. 

Hawaiian Shirt or Coconut Top 
Nothing says Parrothead better than a fun Hawaiian shirt or a sporty coconut top. These tops can range from stylish to hilarious based on the design. Find the type that best fits you and your personality. Feel free to go out on a limb and try something truly fun!

Comfortable Bottoms 
Whether shorts, a skirt or jeans, it's critical that you find something comfortable. You'll be relaxing with your friends, but you'll also be moving around grilling, making drinks and playing games, so make sure you prepare accordingly. 

Your footwear should be as breezy and easy as your attitude. Wear whatever you'd wear to the beach to look like a real Parrothead. 

Your Margarita Glass 
In addition to your clothing, there should be one more accessory in your hand: your margarita glass. Many people opt for a reusable plastic cup that is tropically themed, stylish, fun and shatter-proof. You can fill up at your frozen concoction maker and walk around with the glass without worrying about it breaking. 

Your fellow Parrotheads at Margaritaville® Cargo remind you to enjoy your frozen concoctions responsibly and obey all drinking laws.
