Yes, You Can Look Cool Wearing a Baker Boy Hat—Here's How

We love a hat. It finishes off a look in a way that no other accessory can. It says confident, it says fashion-savvy. And now that A/W 17 is finally here, it's time to start taking advantage of the cooler weather. Baker boy hats (also known as newsboy, poor boy or fisherman hats) rose to popularity around the turn of the century, but they're having a moment yet again among the best dressed set.

Bella Hadid kicked the trend into high gear earlier this spring when she was spotted again and again in the stiff-brimmed style from Brixton. Now, with fall approaching, celebrities like Kaia Gerber, Zendaya and Elsa Hosk have embraced the look too, accessorizing low-key jeans and T-shirts as well as glam embroidered leather jackets and leopard-print furs with the cool topper. Best of all? With options in wool, leather, twill, corduroy and more, there's a style for every outfit.

Below see how celebrities styled the trend, and shop our favourite baker boy hats of the season.
