Thankfully, hats never completely went away. They just became a thoughtful addition rather than a daily necessity. Nowadays, hats come in all shapes and sizes. They work as a shield to the outside world after a sweaty workout, they protect your porcelain skin from the nasty UV rays, they make finding not-so great guy in a club much easier, and they can also change your persona.
