Hats aren't always an easy accessory to pull off. Excluding most beanies we bundle up in to save ourselves from the cold, hats make a bold statement when they're worn for anything beyond comfort. And although they're a tricky piece to style, when they top off the right look, the results are extra impactful. For this reason, hats are a mainstay of fashion accessories—though the trending styles vary from season to season. Right now there are some daring hat styles that have taken favor among the fashion set—including Western-inspired Stetsons, '90s era biker hats, and yes, even bucket hats (with a fashionable twist). These are the hat trends we'll be seeing everywhere in 2018.
