5 Hats Women Should Rock

Gone are the days of the hat being a male-only athletic accessory. Women’s fashion is ever-evolving, and hats are the next best thing. Curious about the latest craze in women’s hats but not sure what you can or can’t do? I’ll tell you something – there is no such thing as not being able to pull something off. If you want to wear it, rock it!

From baseball caps and hats to jaunty berets, here are our favorite women’s hats, and how you can rock them.

Baseball Caps and Hats

You don’t play baseball? That’s cool, you’re not a tomboy? That’s cool too. Baseball caps and hats aren’t just for the guys anymore! Girls are totally rocking them too now, and with hair-up or hair-down; the right baseball style cap can really pull together an outfit. While many on the market tend to be a little gimmicky, bold block colours or monochromatic blacks and whites in leather are a great accompaniment to any baseball cap or hat look. Check out some of the themed baseball caps and hats available at Spencer’s website.

Felt Wide Brim

Hats aren’t solely seasonal either, and hats for women can typically be worn year-round – score! My favourite style for summer or winter is the felt brimmed hat: soft, feminine and beautiful, while still keeping the sun out of your eyes, this hat suits both a bikini and flip-flops, or a big woollen winter coat. Style blog Who What Wear have a great guide to styling wide brim hats.

Oversize Floppy Hat

Oozing sophistication, this oversized hat is perfect for the warmer months and gives off the vibes of lounging around by a pool and sipping mimosas. Great for beachwear, the oversized floppy hat totally rocks over the summer – keeping your face completely shaded. Style blog Always Dolled Up has lots of tips on styling a floppy hat.

Bowler Hat

Despite what you’ve heard, the Bowler hat is simply reserved for old men and Charlie Chaplin. The bowler is an example of women’s fashion – particularly accessories – becoming increasingly androgynous. Girls can totally rock the bowler, sat back high on the head, with your hair down for an effortlessly chic look that says, “What? I just threw this hat on …” Check out the Definitive Guide to Wearing Bowler Hats – yes, there IS a Definitive guide!

Trilby

The Trilby, (often known also as a Fedora) has been getting a bit of a bad rap lately among our male counterparts. That won’t stop us ladies, however! The trilby is super-cool, and is both fashionable and functional – becoming somewhat a summer staple. A great way to style a trilby is with classic vintage pieces with a feminine flair – think pastels and florals. Add a bit of punch with some killer heels or edgy boots. Check out celebrities like Reese Witherspoon and Liv Tyler rocking their trilbys.

Hats do more than just keep your head warm – they look awesome and stylish, too. Which hat are you going to rock this season: sporty baseball caps and hats, or the funky trilby or bowler?

Men’s Fashion Review – Brokn Legend Traveler’s Dark Blue Denim Cap

The Brokn Legend brand of men’s hats has the belief that hats are more than just a man’s accessory, they are a “companion on his journey” through life. The cap style hats are constructed of high quality indigo denim fabric and have a “Vintage” look about them with the distressed brim and cap, which makes them look like they has been with you a long time, even though the hats may be new to you. The Vintage style patches that are applied to the crown of the cap remind me of the different patches that used to be collected years ago and sewn by hand to clothing. They usually meant something to the wearer, like a state that you had travelled to or to mark a special event in your life.

Men’s Fashion Advice – Winter/ Spring Hats

There are so many kinds of hats in the world – caps, bowlers, snap backs, sombreros… But when looking into “Winter-wear” for men, The North Face is a company that you have probably heard of before. One style of hat that is made by them, which has maintained its popularity throughout the years is the “Beanie”.

It is a close- fitting cap that is knit out of acrylic yarn and has an internal band of fleece that provides the extra warmth that you will need on those cold, windy days. The “Bones Beanie”, for example, comes in blue, green, pink, orange, purple, grey, and black.

What’s Wrong With This Picture?: Pete Wentz

joelmadden660 mens fashion

Sometimes I think it’s too easy to pick on poor Pete Wentz and his deplorable sense of style. But then I remember how he’s worth millions of dollars, is celebrated by untold numbers of fans, and totally squanders his potential as an otherwise good-looking fellow. So yeah, goddammit Pete, stop wearing ugly checkered jackets fitted with cutsie smilie face patches and burn that crappy hat you probably bought from a Union Square street vendor. Also, stop hanging out with guys that are obviously stoned 24/7.

Remember to check out our contest for a hot pair of sneakers!!

Lesson #94: Men’s winter hats and you

You lose a ridiculous amount of body heat from exposing your head to the cold. But how do you rock a winter hat without looking ridiculous?

San York Chullo Winter Hat – Alpaca
INFEASIBLE: Dorky chullos with strings
I don’t know how many spliffs you’d need to light to think wearing something stoner-tastic like this would be fashionable, but it’d have to be a lot. Nasty jokes aside, I suppose snowboarder punks have something of a style. A stupid-ass style, that is. Gents, chullos are never in style and probably never will be.

The North Face Flash Beanie

Feasible:Simple dark beanies

Hey, who said winter hats need be stylized? You only wear them when you’re trucking around in the snow anyways. This North Face is simple, durable, comes off your head easy, and doesn’t make you look silly. Easy.

74. Men’s fashion and hats

INFEASIBLE: Hats with all kinds of colorful crap going on

Christian Audigier Men’s City of Angels Hat – White
(From Front StyleRocket)

First: I’M ALIVE! THANK YOU FOR READING STILL, READERS!

Now, down to business: Hats are never, ever the first thing you want people to notice about you. These days (yes, they used to be a fashion statement in the 1800′s), one uses hats for primarily functional purposes: to keep one’s head warm, to mask a bad hairline (don’t do this though), to focus others’ eyes on the FACE versus hair or ears.

Obviously then, Christian Audigier is doing something grievous by selling people junk like the above piece. Yes, psychedelic colored items is fun in concept (when high), but so is Learyean enlightment theory. Chris, please stop doing acid and thinking you’re cool enough to play with the designers who have real insights, k? Wonderful. Moving on…


Feasible: Faux-combat hats in gray, black, and dark blue

Linen Combat Cap-Grey
(Brought to you by Buy.com)


Be wary with combat hats, as with all hats. This piece is very simple and fits nicely on the top of one’s head without covering the face. MAYBE if you’re jet enough you could don a (just one) pin of your favorite indietronica or hipster band on the side, but otherwise leave as is. Also, no facial hair with this.
