Fall 2012 Trends: Hats

Posted on April 19, 2012

Darlings, who doesn’t love a good hat? Well, people with big heads, we suppose.

Marc Jacobs

Granted, it seems like a bunch of designers went full-bore crazy when it comes to the hat designs for this season.

Anna Sui, Burberry Prorsum, Christian Dior

Donna Karan, Emilio Pucci, Giorgio Armani

Jason Wu, Jen Kao, Lacoste

Mara Hoffman, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors

Missoni, Moschino, Prabal Gurung

Rachel Zoe, Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger

Tracy Reese, Victoria Beckham, Yigal Azrouël

 

It’s interesting how many of these are menswear-inspired, from Donna Karan’s tiny little fedoras to Rachel Zoe’s and Armani’s more normal-sized ones; as well as Burberry’s newsboy cap, Hilfiger and Tracy Reese’s jockey caps, Moschino’s cowboy hat, Lacoste’s Holmesian deerstalker,  and Marc Jacobs’ train conductor cap. It’s like playing dressup using a little boy’s toy box. Cute, but we’ve always been partial to a good cloche a la Ralph Lauren. Which ones are your favorites? And could you see yourself sporting any of these styles?
