Quick Pic: Keep Your Ears Warm This Winter With A Hair Hat

This week, the temperature dropped enough for our ears to feel the cold. It’s time to bring out the hats and ear warmers but wouldn’t this “Hallowig” hair hat be a more, um, interesting way to keep toasty this winter? Knit yourself a new ‘do by following these instructions. [Knitty via À La Garçonnière] Keep reading »

Smile! Creepy Hat Forces You To Grin At All Times


Just what we all need—a hat that makes us smile. Constantly. It’s called “The Happiness Hat” (obviously) and you either smile in it or suffer the consequences—literally, from a jolt of pain it inflicts upon you. For some reason I don’t think Bright-Sided author Barbara Ehrenreich would be feeling this contraption—because as she sees it, we are a nation of anti-depressant-popping, cheerfulness-obsessed, unrealistic folks who prize a happy outlook above all else. But back to the hat: It literally jabs you in the back of the head with a metal spike when you frown! Check out this ridiculous video of it exacting revenge on some non-smiler. Spooky.

Hair Model Citizen: Chic Hat Head

Actress Monet Mazur is today’s hair model citizen and here is why: There will be days, my loves, when your trusty tresses will, quite honestly, look like s**t. I know, I know, it’s so unfathomable, but true. Whether you have paparazzi following you around while you’re shopping or you’re simply afraid of running into a boyfriend, a bad hair day calls for a smart hat that helps you take back some control in an unpredictable world. To get the look: sweep hair back from your face; place beneath all-encompassing cap. Shew, that was a close one. [London, 10/22/09] Keep reading »

Wear Big Hats This Summer—Without Looking Like The Queen Mum

Big hats are often placed in the little-old-British-lady-at-a-garden-party category. Not anymore! They are the chicest chapeau to wear if you want to look properly polished while making a serious style statement. If you are bold enough to wear one, that is. Be warned—these wide-brimmed, bright-colored and flowered-covered numbers are not for wallflowers. Here’s a few things to keep in mind:

First, big hats with wide brims are a great way to enforce a personal bubble. Just make sure you don’t accidentally knock someone over every time you turn around. Second, keep the rest of your look simple. Think solid colors dresses with classic lines and a subtly detailed clutch. Fabulous hats are a whole lot o’ look on their own. Pairing a hat with a clean and fresh outfit is an easy way to be fashion forward rather than costume-y. Last but not least, wear it as if you just made it big at the Kentucky Derby. You will certainly look like you did! Keep reading »

Um, No: The Cap-Sac

This is the age of multitasking, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that fashion is following suit. Voilà: the Cap-Sac, a hat-cum-fannypack that protects you from the sun and stores your keys and wallet at the same time. Amazing! The nylon 80s-vibe chapeaus come in funky fresh colors like turquoise, pink, electric-yellow and cool zipper detail. Go full-on retro by pairing them with hammer pants, or rock it hipster-style with Wayfarers and skinny jeans. [$12.99, Cap-Sac.com] Keep reading »

Lady GaGa’s Head Is The Center Of The Universe

Are you sick of Lady GaGa? We aren’t! Yesterday, the Lady was on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” to perform “Poker Face.” Not only was her intro interesting (she starts off sounding like Amy Winehouse and ends up playing the piano while standing on the bench in heels), but her outfit, once again, was exceptional. Her headgear looked like a solar system model, with Lady GaGa’s head as the sun. She paired that with a Britney Spears circa 2001 patchwork denim jumpsuit. Even if you’re not a fan of Lady GaGa’s, you can’t help but appreciate her elaborate costumes. Keep reading »
