We all witnessed the rapid rise and fall of the Ed Hardy trucker hat (thanks to Britney, K Fed, and hordes of sartorially confused teens). Like other now-desperate dressing trends — rhinestone skull T-shirts, Juicy Couture sweatpants — we're starting to wonder if the fedora is about to suffer the same fate.
New York magazine recently demoted the topper to the “lowbrow/despicable” section of its famous Approval Matrix. That, coupled with the recent uprising of anti-fedora blogs, makes us fear the hat may soon be regulated to the too-tan, greasy, whiskered jeans-wearing, sunglasses-inside types who can be found dancing on banquettes at Pink Elephant. However, in a confusing twist, Stylelist recently spotted Skyler Berman (as in, Rachel Zoe's baby) hitting the streets of NYC sporting his very own dark brown fedora. Now, we know he's only a (aww-dorable!) tot, but this still has us taking pause—The Zoe-ster is the queen of all things fashionable, and she would never dream of dressing her little prince in anything that was on its way out. We mean, right?
