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.

But if you’re still cautious about dipping your toe into headwear, start with the four trends below.
