Here at Refinery29, we are an extremely hat-happy bunch. With the turning of the leaves, we're all digging out our coziest Borsalinos, knit caps, and vintage fedoras. And we don't believe you have to be a "hat person" to partake either. Discovering that first perfect design that frames the face beautifully and adds a subtle mystique is the secret weapon every good hat should have.

Now for the good part: We've rounded up no less than 16 for you to try on for size. Among our favorites: Steven Alan's plush Sabina beret (very Faye Dunaway), A.P.C's wool cap (Mary Poppins/Dick Van Dyke chic?), and definitely Urban Outfitters no-nonsense felt bowler (a steal and a timeless one at that!).

Parting advice: Don't go trendy! If you love a fedora, try to find one with a less predictable shape, maybe with a more dramatic rim or a really luxurious fabric like cashmere. And if you really want to be original, head to the tippy-top of custom hat-making, Barbara Feinman in the East Village. Her original Bacall hat is one of our favorites.
