    As much as we cherish go-to sartorial additions like statement necklaces, or striking soles, we kind of have a soft spot for one of the most timeless accessories of all: toppers. It’s no secret haute hats are having a major moment. A great chapeau adds an instant surge of sharp, sophisticated flair. But, it’s not every day you stumble upon one that's worthy of sitting atop your head.
