Accessory of the week: Hats

Hats are head coverings that have been around since the dawn of fashion. They can be worn for protection against the elements, for ceremonies, religious reasons, for safety, or simply as a fashion accessory. Classic hats — the kinds our grandfathers used to wear — have had their ups and downs in popular culture. Sometimes they’re in, sometimes they’re out; sometimes they’re co-opted by a particular entertainer or subculture.

There are many types of hats today that Millennials favor. From Fidoras, Western, Derby, and Top to Baseball caps and Flat caps, this head accessory comes in every shape and size to fit a variety of personalities. One thing is for sure, however, if you’re going to wear a hat, wear it well!
