I’ll admit it: I’m still trying to figure out how to be a “hat person.” (Yes, that’s a thing you can be.) If you’re anything like me, it has always been a challenge to balance personal style with personal needs, like retaining heat during the winter, and the beanies, baseball caps, and fedoras meant to fulfill the latter purpose didn’t really feel like they had a place in my wardrobe. But as the most high-fashion designers in the game—Versace, Prada, Marc Jacobs, Saint Laurent—started embracing berets, fishermen’s caps, and other eye-catching headgear and presenting them on the runway as legitimately covetable accessories, I started rethinking this whole hat thing. And now that the cold is really starting to settle in, I’m seriously shopping for one.
