Do you take your style inspiration from the celebrity set? Are your purchases often dictated by what's going on in Hollywood? It's true that you could be a slave to celebrity, but there's no shame in taking a cue or two from popular culture. That's because there are so many fashionable hats for men and women out there that have been elevated by pop culture icons to must-have and must-wear status.
Consider, too, that hats haven't always received their due. There probably isn't an entire shelf in your closet devoted solely to hats (unless there actually is, in which case you recognize the value of a great fashionable hat), but if you own even one or two you may be able to tip your proverbial hat to pop culture as your inspiration. Here are some famous examples of the best fashionable hats in pop culture.
If you were a child or a teen in the 1990s, chances are you remember Mayim Bialik for her starring role in Blossom. Her key accessory of choice was a floppy hat adorned with some sort of large flower. It was peppy, cute, and eternally youthful. While you won't see many young women wearing this sort of hat today, there have been many women's floppy hats spotted on the major runways throughout the years. They weren't likely to have been inspired by Blossom herself, but there's some charm in wearing a hat that was considered completely cool and stylish during the '90s. No apologies needed! The Wide N' Soft - Jeanne Simmons Mocha Poly Wide Brim Hat is reminiscent of Blossom's style with its large flower and lace embellishment.
