The “might” here is more a reflection of my own personal hat hesitancy than a hesitancy about any of y’all pulling off a hat. As we should all know by now, the only requirement to “pull off” a style is to a. want to and b. rock it with confidence. As you may have heard but almost definitely haven’t, today is National Hat Day. Seriously though. An accessory that was worn as a status symbol in the Middle Ages—and even today is used to denote rank in the military—hats (even those worn for style alone) can be a somewhat unapproachable fashion item.
I have certain friends who regularly crush the hat game, and have long aspired to be one of them. Whether you are already one of the cool-girl hat gang (do y’all have a logo yet?) or a hat newbie like me, these picks will take your 2016 hat game to the next level.
If you’re just easing into the hat world, I think this is a surprisingly easy style to pull off. And even though it doesn’t cover up your ears, it’s wool so it’ll still keep your head warm in colder months.
When I think about the sheer volume of two-tone accessories I own, it is ridiculous that I don’t have a two-tone hat! If you’re not a baby blue gal, it also comes in a black and white tweed-y look and a soft pink-orange with a grey rim.
