Don’t Leave Home Without Them: These Fall Winter 19 Hats Are Nothing Short Of Major

Bad hair days be damned, these hats from the fall winter 19 runways have got you covered

In 1967, Cristóbal Balenciaga introduced a wedding dress that’d eventually become one of fashion’s most iconic creations. It was emblematic for several reasons: For starters, the dress was constructed using a single seam—a feat that attested to the skills of the petite mains that brought Balenciaga’s vision to life. The minimalist design of the dress also made all the difference—the legendary couturier masterminded a work of art that combined grace and beauty in its simplicity. And then there was the dramatic headpiece that accompanied the dress: Inspired by those worn by Spanish fishermen, the sculptural hat instilled a sense of futurism into the gown. Star Wars, anyone?

 If there’s something to be gleaned from Balenciaga’s game-changing design, it’s that your headgear choice makes all the difference. It’s no surprise then, that season after season, designers both past and present have rolled out a myriad of hats to suit every whim and fancy. Fall winter 2019 is no different, with the likes of Dior, Loewe and Prada churning out a stellar range of tricked-out hats. Whether elaborate fedoras or embellished baseball caps, there’s a hat to top off every occasion with panache. Female picks 10 of our favourite chart-toppers that hit the fall winter 2019 catwalks:
