Why We're Still Not Over The Baseball Cap

Every season, one hat is deemed the must-have style. For spring, it was the visor. This summer, it seems the bucket hat is making a comeback (thanks, Rihanna).

Scroll through for a curated selection of shopping and styling inspiration, and let us know what chapeau you’re wearing this summer in the comments below.
