People who go to Starbucks every morning know exactly what they’re getting: melted ice cream that is somewhat coffee-flavored, adequate Wi-Fi, not entirely revolting bathrooms, and baristas in green aprons.
None of that will change, but the company’s new “lookbook” of acceptable employee clothes does allow certain tweaks and twists on each barista’s personal brand—within tightly prescribed parameters, of course.
But the permitted shirts, shoes, and skirts are not what we’re interested in. No, we’re going to skip to the part about headwear.
I know what you’re thinking: “No bucket hats?! Guess the ’90s really are dead.” But also: “Oh my god, fedoras.” Yeah, fedoras. You know them.
