Keep Your Head Toasty in Winter

This man knows how to keep his head warm. Very warm. It may be a bit over the top, but he certainly does get that furry hats are the trend of the moment! I just think this might be overkill (yes, I meant that pun).

Now this is more like it. Fun, sexy, warm and yes, still a bit over the top. I live in New York City so if warmth means a bit over the top, I will take it. This aviator style is the new “it” thing all over the city and with good reason. It really does do its job by covering all of the necessary parts. If fur scares you, choose a faux fur for the same effect. There are also smaller versions that are not so overwhelming to your face. Choose what works for you while staying super stylish.

I love earmuffs. Depending on the temperature outside, they can be the perfect amount of warmth. Keeping your ears toasty is usually most of the battle. The other fantastic part about muffs is that they don’t mess up your hair!! Yea for good winter hair. It is almost an anomaly.

It is clear that I love fur, but I know that is not the opinion for many in this world. Finding a pair that suits you is really what it is all about. Fur is fun because it adds some volume. You can go all Princess Lea without actually pinning two buns on the sides of your head.

And then there was the knit beret. I own a ton of these because my mom is the best knitting queen on the planet. I design and she creates. It really is a match made in heaven:)

The beret is fabulous for outdoors and indoors fashion. This way, it doesn’t matter if you have a hat head because you are never going to take it off! It adds that boho chic element to any look. It isn’t the warmest option, but if you choose a thicker yarn, it should block most of the wind and cold. Make it the pop of color in your look by picking a ruby or eggplant.
Finally, the fedora. Always awesomely stylish on anyone. It is nearly impossible not to look super cool when you throw one of these on. This wool option is great for the frozen months known as winter. It is definitely more about fashion then warmth with this hat, but sometimes I do believe in pain for beauty. My biggest gripe with this particular accessory is that when I actually arrive somewhere there is never anywhere to put it. So it is kind of a, “Does this go with my overall look?” type of piece because you will be rocking it all night long… All night… Oh, all night…..

So choose your head wear carefully and look stylishly warm for the next 4 months. Remember, the topper to your look can make or break the fabulousness. Choose wisely:)
