Most human cultures have a dress code. In a World in which the dresscode includes the Nice Hat as a sign of maturity and badassery, it can quickly become a World of Hats, in which many if not all characters wear a Nice Hat to make them more badass.

Truth in Television for many periods and cultures such as The Roaring Twenties. This trope is usually invoked only for men. The Femme Fatale often also wears a Nice Hat to appear more mysterious and subversive.

A signature element of Film Noir, which is a World of Fedora.

Not to be confused with Planet of Hats. A literal Planet of Hats is a World Of Hats IN SPACE, as in the case of the Trope Namer, but not every Planet of Hats is a World Of Hats.
