When it comes to accessories, we can always count on fashion's biggest trendsetters to have a lust-worthy bag on their arm. But the latest must-have has surprisingly humble beginnings. This season, dad hats are back in full force, but with a fashion-forward spin that has It girls like Bella Hadid and Lily Aldridge adding them to the mix.
Maybe it's thanks to fashion's current obsession with the off-kilter (thanks in part to Vetements), or maybe, like athleisure, it's about making the practical fashionable. Either way, we're digging this off-duty staple.
From ironic statement caps to simple, sleek styles, there's no shortage of baseball-style brimmed hats. Some are ideal for running errands, and others are quirky-cool as part of a going-out ensemble (yes, really). So are you ready to lean into this father-approved favorite? Check out the following inspiration and you just might be sold.
