If there's one thing that will forever come to mind when the name Niall Horan is said, it's not his legacy being a part of One Direction or how good his golf swing is. In fact, it's his deep love for his hat. You know, that tweed, newsboy style cap the singer has been seen wearing for what feels like an eternity. This bond is simply unbreakable and Niall has proven just how loyal he is to this one accessory time and time again.
And in case you were wondering, he was just recently spotted rocking this topper.

Now like most Directioners, you may have found yourself wondering exactly when this love affair began and finally 1D's stylist Ellie Stidolph has spilled the deets.
"Well, this was something he was wearing before I started working with him so it's definitely something that's come from him. I just think that if you have something that makes you feel good, that you're confident wearing, that's great. Niall's very good about that," Ellie said in a new interview. "He does like experimenting with stuff – like different shaped glasses. He does like little styling things. I actively encourage it. We've been to some really cool hat shops together. It's almost like his trademark. You know, David Beckham's been wearing a lot of these hats recently – where Niall starts, David Beckham follows."
OK, so Niall stumbled upon this beloved cap all by his lonesome and just casually started a trend that none other than soccer superstar David Beckham is now a fan of? Nialler is totally in a league of his own, and it looks like this hat really is here to stay. What a time.
