Yes, You Can Look Cool Wearing a Baker Boy Hat—Here's How

While there may still be a few weeks left to wear your straw boaters and floppy-brimmed sun hats, fashion people are already getting a head start on next season with a cap that's perfect for cooler weather. Baker boy hats (also known as newsboy, poor boy, or fisherman hats) rose to popularity around the turn of the century, but they're having a moment yet again among the best dressed set.

Bella Hadid kicked the trend into high gear this spring when she was spotted again and again in the stiff-brimmed style—both versions she designed herself for Chrome Hearts and versions by milliners such as Ruslan Baginskiy and Brixton. Now, with fall approaching, celebrities like Kaia Gerber, Zendaya, and Elsa Hosk have embraced the look too, accessorizing low-key jeans and T-shirts as well as glam embroidered leather jackets and leopard-print furs with the cool topper. Best of all? With options in wool, leather, twill, corduroy, and more, there's a style for every outfit.

Below, see how 11 celebrities styled the trend, and shop our favorite baker boy hats of the season.
