Fall Essential: Wide-Brimmed Hats
16 Start slideshow

We’d be hard-pressed to choose our top trend of the season: One day we feel inclined to channel our inner rock ‘n’ roll chick, a la Anita Pallenberg, and the next we want to step right into an Audrey Hepburn film. One thing that we forsee being a steady fall staple, though: a basic or extreme hat. Right now, we’re partial to wide-brimmed versions.

If you’re new to sporting a hat, we suggest keeping the rest of your threads basic (think jeans and a tee or a black-on-black ensemble). For a more directional approach, try wearing one with a printed jacket or baroque-inspired pants to challenge some of the coolest street style subjects.

Here, we uncovered a range of options varying in style and price. Read on to see some of the best options around!

One of the it-accessories of the season, wide-brimmed hats take on various shapes and sizes to fit a range of outfits.

The incorporation of hardware with this hat makes it the perfect option if you're looking to reference early 1980s electronic club dressing.

The maroon tone of this hat is one of the popular colors of the season. We suggest wearing it with either super basic, black-on-black outfits or ultra-exaggerated textures and prints.
