It's been quite a year in the accessory world. From funky rainbow jewelry and '90s-inspired chokers to super-mini handbags (seriously, some are so tiny you can only fit ChapStick and maybe a dime) and chic hair scarves, there are so many accouterments you can pick from to add that final dash of pizzaz to an outfit. Of course, we can't forget to mention one other essential hair accessory: a hat.
Summer 2019 saw plenty of polarizing styles, like the early aughts bucket hat that people certainly had opinions about. Still, that didn't stop practically every celeb from working the topper into their street style looks. Straw hats were also a major, albeit far less debated, trend. But seeing as fall is near, and with a new season always come new trends, we were quite curious to learn about which hats will stick around (and which you can say goodbye to for the foreseeable future).
So to uncover the biggest fall hat trends for 2019, we tapped our go-to style pro, celeb stylist Britt Theodora, for the five styles she predicts will be everywhere next month. Ahead, see and shop the toppers that are on this stylist's must-have list
The Beach-to-Fall Hat
"I am obsessed with this boater hat. My friends at Avenue are doing everything right, plus a price point that is great for shoppers who want to buy something of quality without breaking the bank. There is something so chic about a grosgrain ribbon, and I love the structure of this hat. Polished enough to wear with big wide-leg trousers and a button-down for fall."
The Bucket Hat—But Make It Leather
"The bucket hat in leather is an incredibly cool way to wear the hat style made famous again by Rihanna. I would incorporate this hat with my floral dresses and throw a chunky knit over it to give it a little grunge."
The Baker-Boy Cap
"I love this pink leather cap from Ruslan. When I saw Elsa Hosk sport one of these hats last year, I was hooked on the trend. The pink is a bold statement, and I would wear this hat with an all-white or all-black look!"
The Classic Fedora
"I recently was in Byron Bay and was so inspired by the bohemian and relaxed lifestyle there. This Australian hat brand [Lack of Color] is already being worn on the streets here in New York. I love this fedora in white, and it would look great with my go-to jeans-and–white T-shirt uniform."
The Versatile-But-Chic Hat
"This Eric Javits rain bucket hat is something I need in my wardrobe like yesterday. Houndstooth is one of my all-time-favorite prints, and I really like the functionality of this hat. The silhouette is polished and also practical for a rainy day."
