Fedoras have made such a comeback recently that they’re now normal, as opposed to trendy. But few celebrities or style geeks have mastered the swagger of a fedora like Yoko Ono. I love how she’s giving someone not pictured in the photo the side-eye that’s framed by the brim of her hat and sunglasses. That’s a “Bitch, say what?” look if I ever saw one.

Ladies, having trouble attracting a man (AND HOW)? Then grab a bowler hat. That’s right: a bowler hat. According to Daily Mail writer Deborah Francis-White, a jaunty cap will do the trick to attract a mate. Says Francis-White:
“I’ve worn a bowler hat and the effect is extraordinary. When I walk down the street dressed normally, nothing happens. If I walk down the street in a bowler, a man will say at least five times a day: ‘Nice hat!’ — which I read as a more acceptable way of saying: ‘Nice breasts!’”
Or, maybe you’re just wearing a stupid hat? Keep reading »
When it’s gray and dreary outside all we want is to do is cozy up in soft layers and things that make us smile. That’s why when we found this super adorable angora blend beret we were overjoyed! The mix of chocolate brown and bright colors is happy without being over the top and the oversized bow is like icing on a cupcake. It’s a perfect and playful edition to any winter wardrobe.
Guess what: winter sucks. If you live in the Eastern hemisphere like we do, you know that starting December 1st or so, it can be nearly impossible to go outside and feel even moderately warm. You need armor. And preferably something heavy-duty that doesn’t look crazy (read: no homemade mustache knit caps or scary bank robber-style hats). Our pick? This Topshop faux fur trapper hat, which will keep you cozy and make a statement.
Just when you thought all the fervor over “Where the Wild Things Are” had died down, Maison Martin Margiela designs this fur headdress. Not only is this thing made of 100 percent Murmansky fur, (i.e., fur from the raccoon dog), but it’s also extremely large and hideous. Not for us. Nope. [Fashion Indie] Keep reading »
Oh, look! Over there! At the end of the bar! It’s … a panda bear? Oh, wait, no, no, it’s actually just a guy wearing panda bear ears and paws. Ugh. Part of a new trend of “spirit animal” fashion, we’re seeing more and more people out and about with spirit hoods. Theoretically, yes, it’s adorable — we love our spirit animals (mini-ponies and Dorothy Zbornak) as much as anybody. But these hoods are a total sartorial boner killer and take us in the wayback machine to the candy-raving ’90s. What do you think? Would you wear a “spirit hood”? [The Vie Society] Keep reading »
If I may be so bold, I don’t think there are many things as sexy as a guy in a slouchy knit cap. Maybe Cate Blanchett’s voice. Maybe David Bowie as the Goblin King in “Labyrinth.” But that’s about it. For example, I had never really given Josh Hartnett a second look until he started showing up everywhere in a black striped beanie. Now I have to resist the urge to make out with the TV screen whenever he makes an appearance (apparently things haven’t changed much since my first celebrity crush).
