Wearing a hat may be the best way to protect yourself from the sun, but this season slipping one on is all about style.
A wide brim, like on Kangol's top-stitched denim Tri (1, $50, Decibel, 200 Queen West, 416-506-9648) protects the back of your neck as well as your face, which scores big on practicality, but that isn't the only reason you'd want to wear it.
Urban Outfitters' flame cap has very racy appeal (2, $27, 235 Yonge, 416-214-1466), while the zip-off crown on Kangol's brilliant three-in-one Can makes for maximum versatility (3, $56, Noise, 275 Queen West, 416-971-6479).
Puma has pounced onto the scene in the UK, making Jet Rag's logo caps real jet-setters (4, $28, 359 Queen West, 416-979-2677).
For a not-so-classic pork pie, check out the Den (5, $45, Kangol, Decibel). Crocheted straw offers a rainbow of potential (6, Lilliput Hats, 462 College, 416-536-5933).
Thank Tiger Woods for the revival of the golf cap (7, Kangol Box, $35, Decibel).
Missing your tuque? A skullcap might suit (8, Kangol's Sol.S, $56, Decibel).
No longer just for fry cooks, visors are all the rave, and Lucy Love's hot pink model is a must (9, $42, Noisy Girl, 275 Queen West, 416-598-1183).
