Trendwatch: Patterned Driving Caps

03/19/2007 at 04:30 PM ET

Stars like Sandra Bullock, Jessica Simpson and Naomi Watts may be trying to stay incognito with their caps pulled over their famous faces, but their classic style is hard to miss! If you’re not ready to retire your warm winter hats, this is a perfect way to jump into spring (try a cotton version if it’s already warm where you are). And the patterns add a burst of fun to a solid-colored outfit.

Get The Look:
Harris tweed ivy cap in grey, $55,

Kangol classic wool herringbone cap, $37,

Miller driving cap in black and white, $28,

Burton “Miss Daisy” plaid cap, $25,

Jaxon window pane ivy cap, $12,

These ladies actually look pretty good in the hats…I kinda like it! I don’t think I would wear it in Tulsa, Oklahoma but maybe if I lived in Chicago, LA, or NY I would wear it!

jennifer on

Elizabeth on

Yuck!!! Hats are ugly, they look awful in them!!!

Maybe because I’m from LA but I think they are cute hats! I love those type of style hats..looks couture if you wear it with the right outfit! :)

ciara on

rachel b. on

Hot! I have a patterned driving cap and wear it for fun and laughs.

Elda on

p.s. i wouldn’t look as good as them because my face is too flat!!

jolie on

ummmm honestly, this never really went ‘out’ seriously this hat has been in the fashion world for a longgg time, in and out.
like they say, what goes around comes around, sooooo I don’t know what the big deal is.

enigma on

This look reminds me of the gents or the good old chaps that go horseback riding in the beautiful english country side! Hip-hip and too-toole-pip and all that!!! he-hee!!!!

katy on

i think that jessica looks the best in these pics, the hat is very cute on her. it looks ok on sandra too, but i don’t think on naomi it looks very good. don’t know if i would wear the hat though.

Jessica on

I like your hat!

Stacie on

Jess looks fabulous! The other girls not so much. I live in DC & I rock the look as well as many other females in the area.

D on

I think they all look pretty good but it is definitely not something that I could pull off. Espicially where I live. I think everyone would laugh.

Lily on

yea this is ok, better than some stuff… jessica looks really good i couldnt even tell it was her till i read the paragraph

Debbs on

I LOVE the caps!!

Ashley on

I don’t like the hats, but I think all of these ladies are stickingly beautiful, so it really doesn’t matter. I would never wear it tho. I’m more of a “baseball cap and ponytail” kinda gal.

kristen on

My grandfather wears caps like this and has for years. I’m not sure that stealing style from an 80-something year old man is OK

rachel on

SOOOO cute!!!

anna on

i love how Jessica looks with the hat and the glasses.

Confused_And_Relentless on

I love the hats! Cute! ^_~

Chirsta on

Jessica looks great in her hat. I just love her darker hair, it is such a change from her blonde hair. She looks terrific.

I wear hats like those above sometimes. I think they’re great.

Faaiza on

These hats have always been cute and it also depends on the person wearing them.

Crystal on

as a fan of sandra bullock, i absolutly love the way she sports her hat. very nice complement to the shape of her face.
