The Wide-Brimmed Hat That Won’t Make You Look Like a Brooklyn Blogger

Welcome back to Editor's Picks, a Friday series profiling the buys our editors are obsessed with. This week, Racked fashion assistant Nia Porter shares a wool fedora that is flattering on pretty much everyone.

"Like most humans with large heads, I have a hard time finding hats that fit and are flattering. I've made do with beanies and adjustable baseball caps, but I wanted something that was a little more put-together. I was drawn to this fedora from Lack of Color's 'luxe' collection because it is well-made, but affordable.

The taller crown gives it structure, setting it apart from other hats, and adding headspace for those who need it (me, me, and me). I got it in black because I can wear it with almost anything."
