Not enough to spark your interest? Read on to find out why Kangol hats will always be a stylish hat!

The Kangol hat played a pivoted role in defining a certain era of music, which lasted from the early 80's through the early '00s.  LL Cool J put Kangol on the map, making the topper become one of his signature accessories, and in fact, he was rarely seen on the stage or red carpet without a Kangol hat! 

While Kangol was mostly a men's thing back in the day, that did not stop the style icon and doyenne of rap herself, Missy Elliott. She wore a fuzzy pink bucket hat on the cover of her hit 2002 album Under Construction and continued to represent the Kangol label throughout her career.

Whether Kangol hats were worn during a beat box session or a rap battle, the Kangol hat is a piece of music history that is more that deserving of another go in the spotlight-especially with everyone's sparked interest in '80's and '90s style iconography.
