There’s nothing like a handsome hat on a handsome man. From a masculine fedora to a sexy, relaxed beanie, hats are hot this winter and will also be a popular trend come spring. Effortless and classic, hats are the perfect accessory to top off your look and create cohesiveness for your outfit. Here’s how to pull one off with sophistication and style.

The Timeless Trilby

Trilby hats are a classic men’s hat; elegant and timeless, they’ve been around for a while for a reason. Trilby hats are usually made of felt, wool, or tweed and look great with a blazer over a shirt or sweater and a pair dark cuffed jeans. If you are headed somewhere formal, the trilby adds a dashing touch to a suit and tie – throw on a trench coat and you’ll instantly transform into a stylish city slicker.

The Boyish Baseball Cap

Simple baseball caps have made an impressive comeback recently, and come spring and summer, will take over the men’s fashion world. Caps are masculine and youthful, and look trendy with a chambray button down, utility shirt, or a long-sleeved shirt and puffer vest. For a sportier and carefree look, try wearing one backwards (which will also make the ladies swoon).

The Fashionable Fedora

If you are more on the hipster side, the fedora is trendier than ever. Choose a dark tone like black, chocolate brown, navy, or dark olive green and wear with a casual button down, tee, or flannel. The fedora can also be dressed up and looks stellar with a sport jacket, blazer, or long pea coat.  

The Cool Knit Beanie

There’s nothing like a slouchy knit hat in the winter and spring; it screams laidback and cool, but is still effortlessly stylish. Pull on a gray beanie with a neutral henley shirt and a denim or leather jacket or chic bomber, and add some desert boots to finish off your rugged yet put-together look. Beanies are warm enough for cold days and are also spring-appropriate – just add some shades.

Hats are a fun and versatile accessory and can add that fashionable finishing touch to any outfit. So don’t fear hats, fellas; they serve a very stylish purpose and – not to mention – will also keep chilly ears and bright sunshine at bay.
