We Never Thought This ’00s Trend Would Make a Comeback

But it did, and even Bella Hadid’s on board.

By: Samantha Sutton

There are certain parts of our lives that we wouldn’t want to relive—and they mostly have to do with our pre-teen years, when crazy fashion trends seemed to reign supreme. Bubble skirts, for instance? Umm...yikes. Belting shirts when they didn’t actually need a belt? *Cringe*. But now another nostalgic style has come back from the dead, ready to haunt us...and tempt us into rocking it all over again: military-like caps.

It’s not that this hat was particularly kooky or horrible-looking. It’s that we can’t seem to erase the memory of us wearing one with a tube top and terry-cloth pants (maybe even a chain belt). Luckily, ladies like Bella Hadid—who even included the hat in her Chrome Hearts collaboration—and other stylish stars are showing us the 2017 way to add one to our outfit. Click through for a bit of inspiration, then shop one of our picks for yourself.
