Hats are a fashion lover's best friend.

They hide dirty hair. They can be the star or complementing feature of any outfit. They protect your tresses from the elements. Admit it: This accessory is worthy of an investment.

Just take Shay Mitchell's fall ensemble as an example. The actress wows with her low-cut white top, black jeans, Chanel fanny pack, plaid blazer and circular glasses, but the black baker's boy hat is the hero of the outfit. It transforms her look from chic to It Girl cool and brings attention to her long straight hair.

In order to score the winning hat, hair combo like Shay this season, you'll need two things: a hat that will turn heads and a hairstyle that will complement it. Need some inspo? Check out how celebrities are wearing their fall hats below!
