4 Trends That Will Finally Convince You You're a Hat Person

I’d like to be the type of fashion editor who says she’s not intimidated by any fashion trends. But here’s a little secret: Hats intimidate me—big time. Unless it’s winter and I’m sporting a beanie, I’m very aware there’s something sitting on my head, perhaps making a statement all its own.

I give a lot of credit to those who have a signature topper in rotation, much like Bella Hadid all last spring. But if you’re still cautious about dipping your toe into headwear, start with the four trends below. While they’ve been floating around street style snaps and on runways alike, what’s—personally—quite comforting is that the fall hats ahead offer both classic (baseball caps) and more daring (hello, vinyl bucket hats) options to choose from, depending on where your head’s at (literally and figuratively).

Click in for the four styles that might finally convince you (and me) that you are indeed a hat person.

This old-school style—and favorite of Bella Hadid—has become more and more popular in the last year. And it's pretty darn charming, too.

Once suited for beach days and Delia's catalogs, the bucket hat has returned and is looking much more grown-up nowadays.

We saw the beret on the runways of Gucci and Dior. It's only natural for the trend to spread like wildfire.

We know—baseball caps have never really gone out of style, but the classic shape is a trend anyone can try to add a bit more ease and laid-back vibes to any ensemble.
