It's time to reconsider that "I'm just not a hat person" stance. Whether you're trying to save your blowout from a case of frizz (thanks, April showers) or get a little shade from the sun, there are plenty of New York City boutiques with hat options at a range of price points that'll make even the most hat-averse to think twice about topping off their look.
Below, we've mapped our favorite NYC hat stores for this season and beyond, from the affordable to the cutesy and everything in between, from north to south. Whether you're looking for a fascinator for this summer's Jazz Age Lawn Party, a classic wool fedora, a fitted cap, a Kentucky Derby-worthy topper, or just a simple snapback, we've got you covered.
