For years, we've been obsessed with Lisa Bonet's seemingly effortless, spotlight-stealing style. The star (who these days is going by Lilakoi Moon) has a knack for showing up on a red carpet (or simply walking down the street) in breezy, unexpected combinations, and over the years, she's consistently paired her best looks with one particular accessory.

Reflecting back on Bonet's fashion choices, we'd occasionally stop and marvel at the variety of hats she's worn. Those iconic '80s and early-'90s outfits? They included some quirky-cool top hats. In '00s, she embraced the trucker — but actually looked good doing it. Bonet has stepped out cowboy hats, berets, and has even tried bowlers. Plus, she clearly knows you can never go wrong with a classic, felt wide-brim.

Much like how Jennifer Aniston has loved scarves for decades, Bonet has proven to have a thing for hats. So we've rounded up a few of her best options, which will likely provide some headgear inspiration as winter weather approaches.

Even while playing Denise Huxtable on The Cosby Show, Bonet was giving us hat inspiration. That flipped-up, straw option really pulled her baggy, '80s look together.

Who said baseball caps can't be dressed up? This one looks very cute when styled with Bonet's silver drop earrings.

Does it even get cooler than this top hat and round-frame sunglasses combo? No. No, it does not.

We'll definitely remember the star's iconic pairing forever.

Somehow, a graphic mesh hat looks like a million bucks on Bonet's head.

Back in the early '90s, the actress made a beige, sleeveless dress seem casual with the help of a black cap, black boots, and layered pendant necklaces.

She embraced a western vibe in the early '00s, showing up to the premiere of Disney's Atlantis: The Lost Empire in a cowboy hat.

Clearly, Bonet considered the style to be a '00s style essential. She later paired a cowboy hat with a red T-shirt at a production of The Vagina Monologues.

The 2003 trucker hat wasn't for everyone, but here's proof that Bonet mastered the trend.

She later rewore the same quirky style with oversize black pants, a beige satin shirt, and black suspenders.

Bonet proved a brown, felt wide-brim hat was the perfect travel companion, and it added a little oomph to her green jumpsuit.

She also used it to turn a simple black dress into a full, fashionable outfit.

Matching your pants to your beret? It's a yes for Bonet, who made a strong case for doing so in 2016.

The actress also demonstrated how great this hat option looks with a leopard coat.

Rather than wearing a basic knit beanie this winter, we might take a page from Bonet's book and try a floppy, wide-brim hat — or one of the many other options she's worn throughout the years!
