Hats have long had a tendency to fall by the wayside when it comes to outfits, but that stops here: the accessory has experienced a bit of a revival over the past few months, starting with the sudden explosion of shearling accessories on the runways. Now that fuzzy hats, bags, and shoes are a thing, it’s been sort of the gateway for a wider variety of hats to now capture everyone’s attention.
According to me, the hat fandom is long overdue—its ability to make an outfit is supremely underrated. Especially when it’s this freezing and layers upon layers become the norm—other than your coat or shoes, it’s really the only thing that’s visible. So yep, they’re pretty important if you care about setting an impression with your style. With the fashion crowd’s abrupt interest in hats spiking up, I thought I’d review the specific trends people are wearing on repeat—guaranteed you’ll exit this tab with one in your cart.
