For book lovers, there’s nothing like a literary accessory to announce your love of reading to the world. And what better way to transition from summer to fall than with a bookish hat that can keep the sun out of your eyes? Whether you’re looking for something to shield you from the sun on long walks to the library, something to protect your eyes during beach reading sessions, or something to show your literary side off to your baseball team, a hat is a perfect complement to any casual outfit.
Most of the hats here are geared toward the warmer months, though some of you who don’t live in the frigid midwest may be able to sport them year-round. Available in various styles and colors, bookish hats also make a great gift for a book-loving friend since their sizing is generally adaptable. Bookish hats can help you show off specific books you love, share a literary quote from your favorite book, or tell the world how much you love reading. Most of these hats are what I call “ball caps,” but I’ve learned the internet refers to them as “dad caps,” which means they have a soft feel and will fit comfortably right out of the box. Whatever your style, pack one of these bookish hats for your next reading adventure, and you’ll be all set!
