Headwear is how we can elevate our entire fashion look. It's a way to have fun and not take yourself too seriously. Take women at the horse racing, for example. Their dresses have length standards, and everything what doesn't fit will be frowned upon. Hats, on the other hand, can be as elaborate and flamboyant as it's humanly possible...like fascinators.

So inspired by a recent video from James May, I made a list of headwear that remind me of certain cars. As usual, it has no scientific basis whatsoever, but hey, don't take it too seriously.

5. Straw hat - Beach buggy

When temperatures are high it's important to wear proper clothes, and this includes headwear.

4. Bobble hat - Mini

Been struggling to explain this one but there seem to be a correlation, in my personal experience, at least. Quite a few people driving Mini seem to own a bobble hat.

3. Flat Cap - London Taxi

Well, I'm sorry but London Taxi really is the first thing that comes to mind.

2. Baseball cap - Ford Focus ST

These two seem like a proper match.

1. Baseball cap backwards - Subaru Impreza WRX STI

There comes a certain stage in life when wearing baseball caps backwards becomes unacceptable. However, if you insist, I have just a car for you.
