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).

Kingdom of Style pointed us to these awesome comic book-inspired hats. Whether you’re a “BAM!” or a “POW!” type of girl, these hairpieces are sure to enhance your superhero tendencies, particularly in the fashion department. Hand-crafted by London-based milliner Janine Basil, her rhinestone-encrusted statements are fit “for a fun night out, burlesque event, or even a comic convention!” Each little headpiece is outfitted with a hair comb to keep it in place — just in case your arch-nemesis shows up on the scene. They’re $95. [Etsy] Keep reading »
Not content to wait for a closet full of insane headware to be delivered, Lady Gaga wants to DIY a few. A rep for Philip Treacy, who has designed hats for everyone from Alexander McQueen to Valentino and Dior, told British Vogue that “the [internship] request came through quite a while ago.” Apparently Treacy and The Gaga “get on well and she has applied for an internship although nothing has been confirmed yet,” continued the rep. When we were fashion interns, there were coffee runs, errands in heels, and, at least in my case, an incident involving Serena Williams and quite a lot of spandex. If Treacy approves Lady Gaga’s internship application, we’re guessing she’ll get to bypass the Starbucks trips. [Vogue UK] Keep reading »
