This summer nostalgia, yet again, spurred a throwback interest: hats—namely, the bucket hat and baseball cap—from cotton to terry and logo-emblazoned versions. But now, the best fall hats for women are on deck for cooler weather, from cashmere beanies to leather berets and wool wide-brims. Yes, the woven straw fedoras, cotton caps, and visors of summer and holiday getaways hold a special place in our hearts. But with autumn’s crisp breeze and desire for all things cozy, fall hats are among the few finishing touches that instantly take an outfit from great to outstanding.

Even if you don’t consider yourself a hat person, there’s undoubtedly a style that might appeal to you. For classic tastes, the wool or felt wide-brim is fail-safe when it comes to statement-making style, whether you’re drawn to a rancher, tall triangle crown, or garden hat. The fedora is a close cousin, with a slightly shorter rim—flawless for day-to-day wear in deliciously rich earthy tones and neutrals. If your excitement for trendy bucket hats and baseball caps has not yet waned, there are corduroy, and velvet iterations with your name on them come fall. Each one is decidedly fitting for the cooler weather while adding a textural element to layered outfits of all kinds. Speaking of texture, oh-so-cozy bouclé and shearling, as well as sleek leather, is prominent on the fall hat scene. From beanies to buckets and berets to baker-boys, you can find just about every silhouette covered in these tactile fabrics. And for those who favor beanies and berets, there’s no shortage of those in luxurious cashmere, warm wool, or cotton crochet.
