Actor Robert Pattinson is known for his whimsical fashion choices and extravagant lifestyle, though he has taken a bit of a backseat in terms of recent paparazzi attention. After his split with longtime girlfriend and Snow White Agnness De Chasté, the English actor has been seen in public donning a variety of stylish headwear. The latest style to emerge is the R.Pattinson Hatman, a bold fashion statement that has taken the internet by storm. Let’s take a closer look at this enigmatic fashion choice and what it means for men and women alike.

A Bit Of A Trend Setter

While it’s always fun to see one’s favorite celebrity in the media, it’s not quite as exciting when that celebrity is taking a backseat to trends that actually work for the average person. Since the start of this year, a variety of extravagant headwear choices have made their way to the forefront, specifically the fedora, the homburg, and of course, the R.Pattinson Hatman. If you’re unfamiliar, a fedora is a flat cap with a narrow brim and classic rolled collar. Usually adorned with a feather or some other ornamental trim, it was originally designed for men to wear in the early 20th century. The homburg is a sort of a cross between a sports hat and a fedora, designed with an image of a medieval knight on the front. Lastly, the R.Pattinson Hatman has been embraced by men and women alike for its contemporary take on a classic look.

Catches The Eye

While we can’t speak for Mr. Pattinson, his choice to wear a cap with a feather is not an accident. The 39-year-old began donning the unique headwear on the set of the Twilight Saga premiere, Breaking Dawn – Part 1. He was spotted in London wearing the classic outfit, and the rest, as they say, is history.

When it comes to fashion, celebrities can often set trends that the rest of us try to follow. In this case, it seems that Mr. Pattinson’s choice to wear a cap is something that women have taken a liking to. In fact, the hat has earned him the title of The Most Eligible Bachelor in more than one occasion. Mr. Pattinson is also known to occasionally wear a camo fedora, which has made him even more of a style icon for the modern hunter–gatherer. While it’s always fun to see a celebrity sport a unique style and set trends, perhaps it’s best to leave the fashion choices to the professionals.

Where Do You Wear It?

If you’re fortunate enough to be one of the social media influencers who has been graced with the presence of Mr. Pattinson, you’ll no doubt have the opportunity to ask the question, “Where do you wear it?” The fact that this is even a question speaks volumes about the popularity of this style in the first place. Since the start of this year alone, searches for the R.Pattinson Hatman have increased by 82% in the UK and 56% in the U.S, according to Google Trends. The increase in searches is even more staggering when you consider that this was only a style that emerged last year. If you compare this to the same period in the previous year, you’ll see that searches are up by 39% and 45% in the UK and U.S., respectively. It would seem that the fashion police are doing their job, though perhaps it’s time for them to start wearing a camouflage uniform and ride a bike.

More Than Meets The Eye

Thoughts of romance are undoubtedly running through most everyone’s heads right about now, and we can’t blame them. Since the start of the year, searches for the romantic hashtag, #Romantic, have increased by 81% in the UK and 41% in the U.S. It would seem that the rise in searches is a reflection of how much everyone is planning to propose during the next few months. If you’re searching for a proposal too, there are a variety of luxurious locations that you might want to consider. From elegant hotels to breathtaking vineyards, these are some of the most romantic places that you can propose to your beloved. If money is no object to you, Cologne or St. Petersburg are two stunning cities that are chock-full of attractions and experiences that are fit for a king or queen. Alternatively, you can propose in the most spectacular location that you can find. If privacy is a concern, consider a small, intimate ceremony at a hotel or a private residence. Whatever you do, make sure that you plan the event with your newlywed partner and celebrate the occasion in the manner that you both desire.

It’s been an eventful year, to say the least. Though there are still a variety of glamorous events to look forward to, from premieres to openings, there is one style of headwear that we want to see make a grand entrance; the R.Pattinson Hatman. The fact that this was only a style that emerged last year is a testament to how much it’s caught on, so let’s give Mr. Pattinson our undying support as he embarks on yet another fashion adventure.
