What’s the no. 1 cold weather accessory you should never be without? If you answered hats, you’re right! Clearly, scarves and gloves don’t fall back behind, but there’s nothing like a chic and cozy hat (or beret!) to keep your head from freezing over during those early fall mornings.
So let’s see which are your best choices for fall. Ahead, three types of cold weather hats that successfully tick off both the coolness and the practical requirements on the list.
Hats Fall 2014: Beanies
What a no-brainer, right? Beanies are ridiculously easy to find and to incorporate in an outfit. You can pair them with dresses, jeans, heels or sneakers for an instant boost of coolness. Choosing a black beanie is always a safe bet, but only unusual colors will truly make you the center of attention. A neon beanie, for example, looks fantastic when paired with a dark or gray ensemble. Also, for a bad-ass look, pair any type of beanie with leather leggings and an oversized cardigan or blazer.
Hats Fall 2014: Structured Hats
From wide-brim hats to fedoras or boater hats, the options are pretty much endless. A simple, structured hat goes perfectly with high heels or with sneakers and it adds a feminine touch to any outfit. For an out-of-the-box look, wear a red fedora with a matching lipstick and keep the rest of the ensemble easy and simple. If you’re going for a more sophisticated look, a fine fedora, some kick-ass leather leggings, high heels and a faux fur should do the trick. Bonus points if the result is an all-black look. Hot!
Hats Fall 2014: Berets
Berets might have been MIA until now, but they are surely coming back in style! For the Fall/Winter 2014 season, numerous designers (Rodarte, Ermanno Scervino, Ralph Lauren) have sent berets down the runway and the result was stunning! Paired either with skirts of with trousers, we have to give it to them: berets definitely look modern and cool again. For a day-to-day look, pair your beret with a skirt and a sweater – so easy, right? Add a leather jacket to the mix to balance out the look and you should be good to go. Paris, here we cooome!
