You know how every beauty editor will tell you to apply sunscreen without fail, every single day. Well, the time has come for fashion to get in on sun safety with the same vigour, with It girls across the world making the case for a hat — no matter the outfit.
From a wide-brimmed, Western-inspired silhouette to a cutesy bucket hat or a classic baseball cap, the fashion set have embraced wearing headgear with a vengeance. Pairing their caps and berets with an all array of outfits — including, but not limited to, sparkly jumpsuits, statement coats and pantsuits — the who’s who of fashion has proven hats aren’t just for the beach, or summer for that matter. In fact, they might just be winter’s biggest new trend.
Taking to the streets of New York, London, Milan and Paris, hats were abound. From block colours to punchy hues, headwear took centre stage. Proving there’s nothing wrong with mixing business with casual, caps were paired with power suits and sharp millinery took pride of place alongside even shaper shoulders. Forget the bumbag, this is 2019’s most-worn accessory.
Sun safe and chic, see the best of the best below — and yes, we’d recommend investing in a bucket hat, ASAP.
