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 »
Meet the Brimmed Headband — not quite a hat, more than a visor, but totally ugly! [Athleta] Keep reading »
Mayday: Snooki has landed in Miami, and homegirl doesn’t travel light. While many of us try to pare down when we pack and move, not Nicole Polizzi. She just grabs everything she has and even wears it if she needs to, like this random sombrero she must’ve picked up one Spring Break in Cabo. [Miami, 4/5/10] Keep reading »
Having a bad hair day? Prematurely balding? Just looking for a change in your look? Throw out your hair brush and please, for the love of God, put down the Rogaine because the ponytail baseball cap is here to save you. And yes, by “save you” we actually mean “make you look completely insane.” But who cares about crazy when you’ve got a full ponytail of shiny, blond, synthetic hair? No one, that’s who. Friends and enemies alike won’t be able to help but notice the new luster in your locks and you’ll never have to be self-conscious about having a thin, mangy pony again! If you really want to get serious about thicker hair, consider combining your own with the hat’s ponytail for a truly full mane, no matter if yours is an entirely different color! In the pursuit of beauty, sacrifices must be made, after all. [$17, Kohl's] Keep reading »
Yesterday, we asked how you felt about berets being back. (Let’s just say your answers varied.) So here’s another winter look we’re putting out to the jury—the ginormous fur hat, last seen loitering on various NYC hipsters, some skinny actress during her Aspen vacation and/or at the Sundance Film Festival. These Russian-inspired caps have a wide range in price. Some, like this Adrienne Landau version (left), go for as much as $400 because they’re made of real fur. But if you’re not into being a crazy person who spends half a month’s rent on a hat, Urban Outfitters has one (right) to fit your budget at less than $30.
One thing’s for certain—they certainly look warm. So, thoughts? Keep reading »
Off the top off our heads, heh, people who wear berets: Beatniks, Parisians, Carrie Bradshaw trying to look like a dumb Parisian, models in the Spiegel catalogue, women in the ’80s.
That doesn’t paint the most appealing of pictures. While the beret has been around in fashion circles for ages, you probably haven’t had one in your closet in years. Then again, did you ever? These hats are pretty intimidating. Wearing one definitely makes a statement, and not everyone can pull it off without looking like they just walked out of a costume shop.Yet it looks like they’re making a comeback, as we’ve noticed the winter accessories popping up in new shipments at some trendy stores like Topshop, and even the more high-concept Oak in NYC. This season, Eugenia Kim‘s take on the beret has a Scottish vibe with a plaid print and showy pom-pom. Maybe these are novelty items on the shelves, but the fact that American Apparel is now selling a unisex (of course) beret as well is a sign that the masses are biting. You know what happens when hipsters start wearing something “original.” (Hint: It becomes the most common style out there.)
So, would you wear a beret? Keep reading »
Judging from oh, say, all those three wolf moon shirts that keep popping up all over the place, wolves are (still) hot, hot, hot right now! They must be if international “it” girl Daisy Lowe wore this fetching (har) hat to Rihanna’s “it” concert in London this evening. Being complete sheep (ha), we scoured the web in search of this cap, because we simply had to have it. So the bad news is we stumbled upon a few sort-of-but-not-really similar versions at Ecrater and, um, the Minnesota Historical Society, but go figure, they’re waaay too scary-looking. The good news is we finally started to wonder why the hell we were looking for a hat like this in the first place and stopped doing so immediately. Whew, that was a close one. Keep reading »
It ain’t no thang to spot Lady Gaga wearing crazy headgear or anything, but the one she wore at the 30th Anniversary Gala of MOCA (Museum of Contemporary Art) was notable for being designed by none other than uber-architect Frank Gehry. Now that’s an interesting fashion collaboration. [L.A., 11/14/09] Keep reading »
