Bad hair day? Don’t worry, you’ll literally never have to show the top of your head ever again. Thanks to nearly every single 2020 Fashion Week runway, there are a ton of 2020 hat trends to try out—from major statements like cowboy hats and turbans to more low-key, wearable picks like berets and bucket hats. (Yes, I said bucket hats. They made it all the way to Fashion Week! Can you believe?) And now that many of us—including all your favorite retailers—are ready for fall and winter, there’s no better time than now to start stocking up on all the gorgeous hats available right now.

ICYMI, statement-making toppers were all over the biggest runways, from LaQuan Smith to Christian Siriano to Marc Jacobs. And while the designers paired them with equally gorgeous attire, it’s no secret that a hat can jazz up an otherwise basic look, too. If you’re stuck in a boring-top-and-jeans rut, consider investing in a new hat (Or two, or three…) and see just how quickly it elevates your look. Plus, like I said, you’ll never have to worry about a bad hair day again. You’re welcome.

If you’re itching to dig into the trends, I don’t blame you. You’ll never consider hats your last choice when it comes to accessories again. Bags, sunglasses and jewelry may have reigned in the past, but this year, it’s all about the hat. Read on for the biggest hat trends of the year, plus a few options you’ll want to Add to Cart.

2. Cowboy Hats

When I saw the cowboy hats coming down the runway at Chiara Boni’s Spring/Summer 2020 show, I knew right then and there I’d be rocking this look to the tune of “Old Town Road” all year long. Try and stop me.

3. Bucket Hats

Bucket hats started gaining popularity in fall and winter of 2019, but Elie Tahari’s Spring/Summer 2020 show confirmed that they’ll remain cool throughout all of 2020, too. The best part about bucket hats is that they low-key go with everything. Need proof? Rock the Adidas logo’ed hat below with a street style ensemble, the leopard-print R13 version below with an LBD, and the fuzzy bucket hat with a turtleneck and high-waisted denim.

4. Wide Brim Hats

I truly never thought I’d want to wear anything even remotely similar to a tophat, but Christian Siriano’s Fall/Winter 2020 show changed my mind. Models wore flat-topped, ultra-wide-brim hats in the same fabrics as their luxe gowns, and while I don’t have many a gown in my future, I might have to have a few wide brim hats. It’s safe to say I won’t be rocking such dramatic styles IRL, but there are certainly some toned-down versions worth trying.

5. Fashion Turbans

The ultimate cool-girl hat trend to try this year is the turban, as spotted at L’Agence and Libertine’s Fall/Winter 2020 shows. While one model at L’Agence rocked the gold lamé version of my wildest dreams, models at Libertine paired colorful, almost graffiti-patterned turbans with matching scarves around their necks. Dreamy.

6. Faux Fur

I’ve been a longtime lover of faux fur coats, but LaQuan Smith’s Fall/Winter 2020 collection introduced me to faux fur accessories, and honey, I’m hooked. As far as cold winters go, faux fur hats is a great trend to try, but I have a feeling I’ll be experiencing a few additional sweaty-headed days in the name of rocking this trend year-round. Judge me not.

If you’re not into animal prints, though, you can always opt for a simple black faux fur hat to wear all fall and winter long.



7. Baseball Caps

I’ve never really considered baseball caps interesting enough to become a trend, but after seeing how designers like Each x Other, Leonard Paris and Marine Serre elevated the trend and made it runway-ready, I’m changing my tune. You can go for a bit of a masculine flare or something totally maximalist and fun. It’s up to you, but this is hat trend that works for all seasons.

If you want to snag a version of the trend that’s a bit elevated, go for this gorgeous plaid baseball cap
from Eugenia Kim. It’s a little pricey, but so worth it.

8. Headscarves

Are they scarves or are they hats? Technically, they’re both—and headscarves were all over the 2020 runways. Fendi, Marc Jacobs and Libertine all featured elegant (but also seriously cool) head wraps in their shows, and the trend has officially made its way into all the cutest accessories collections. Pro tip: You can wear these headscarves as bandanas and around your neck, too.

Of course, you can always opt for a fun solid color, too. This pretty pink headscarf
is sure to pair well with so many of your favorite ensembles.



9. Embellished Hats

Last but not least, a trend with which your imagination can run wild. Christian Cowan’s Fall/Winter 2020 show featured the most luxurious gem-coated caps, and they were pretty much as close to an everyday tiara as one could hope for. Sadly, there’s nothing quite like it on the market right now, so if the bedazzled options here don’t suit you, you might have to grab a glue gun and DIY yourself something similar.

A jewel-covered turban is exactly what you need in your wardrobe to make it that much extra. Treat yourself to some bling, baby!
