Shopping Guide: Baker Boy Hat

Baker Boy Hat on Kate Moss

Baker Boy Hat, Newsboy Hat, Fiddler Cap, Fisherman’s Cap, Cabbie Hat, Sailor Cap, Lieutenant Hat, and the list goes on. These are the many names for one huge Fall trend this year. Baker Boy Hats are in just about every fashion magazine and of course, all over Instagram. I think the last time I wore one was during my Paris trip years ago. There’s something so European-chic about it and I’ve become so excited about adding it to my outfits this season. Well, I looked everywhere and I couldn’t find mine from years ago. So I decided to hit up a few stores at local malls. Guess what? They’re sold out everywhere!! I asked one of the sales associates at Topshop why the heck it’s sold out everywhere all of a sudden, and she said, “Honestly, I think a Kardashian wore it recently and now everyone wants it.” Well that made a lot of sense; they are the ultimate influencers of our age, after all. So ever since hunting down a Baker Boy Hat at nearby malls and boutiques was a major fail, I’ve been on a mission to find these bad boys at my favourite online boutiques.

I quickly realized there are so many styles available at online shops, and before I knew it, I had tons of tabs open as I compared prices and styles. It has been so hard deciding which one to go with. But I figured I’d share the love with you guys and compile the best styles out there so you don’t have to go through the hassle of having a million tabs open. Here’s to all of us owning at least one of these styles, because a Baker Boy Hat is truly is a must-have this Fall!
