When it comes to streetwear, your lid game is paramount. Whether you’re repping your favorite sports team or just trying to keep your ears warm, what you rock on your dome says a lot about you. The right hat can make an otherwise boring outfit pop, not to mention cover up a botched fade. The key here is rocking headwear that means something to you. It’s gotta be something unique. Wearing a fitted just based on color or popularity generally isn’t a good look.
There are a lot of styles out there, from snapbacks to beanies to fedoras to buckethats. You’ve got to pick the one that’s right for your build. Lucky for you, we’ve got pretty much every style you’re ever gonna need, and we took it upon ourselves to showcase some of our favorite pieces:
1. Huf – The Plantlife Box Logo 5 Panel
With marijuana becoming more and more accepted and embraced by the general public, now’s the best time to invest in some gear that displays your love for the green. This five-panel cap from Huf is a dope addition to your collection, with a unique color pallate and their signature all-over plant life print.
2. Staple – The Daly Pigeon Snapback
We’re huge fans of Jeff Staple. Every piece that comes out of his camp is utterly unique, and they’re all consistently top-notch quality. This subdued, 100% cotton snapback features the signature staple pigeon embroidered at the front with a tribal print brim. This hat goes perfectly with the Daly Loopback Hoodie.

4. Wutang Brand Limited – The 36 Chambers Leather Strapback
Honestly, there isn’t much we have to say about this one. Who doesn’t love Wu Tang? Who hasn’t listened to 36 Chambers on repeat? Is there anyone out there who would deny that they’ve got one of the illest logos of all time? This 6-panel hat is a must-have for any and all hip hop fans.
