When the cold weather hits, looking hot isn’t an easy thing to achieve. In many cases, an attempt to stay warm can result in a Marshmallow Man phenomenon, something that wasn’t even stylish in 1984. Check out these scarves, gloves, and other winter warmers that will dress you up, but not necessarily weigh you down. Keep reading »
If your mother is anything like mine, she probably used to yell at you all winter: “If you don’t put on a hat, you’re going to catch pneumonia!” I hated wearing my stocking hat when I was younger — all the cool girls had ear muffs or knit headbands. Oh, how the times have changed. Now, I’d wear any of the elegant hats below every day without complaint. When it starts to snow and I’m walking down the street wearing my ribbon-trimmed cloche, I’m going to feel like the most sophisticated girl in town. Keep reading »
Yesterday, there was hat-like hair at Christian Dior, and today there were giant wildflower bouquets atop the models’ heads at Junya Watanabe. Apparently headgear is big for spring. [Junya Watanabe fashion show; Paris Fashion Week; 9/30/2008] Keep reading »
How long has it been since it was cool enough for you to wear pants? Far too long, in our opinion. This hat-wearing gal, with her tank and skinny jeans, makes us yearn for sunny days that aren’t at all humid, when pants can be worn without sticking uncomfortably to the legs. Autumn rocks.

Bangs are cute and all, but they make wearing hats rather difficult. If you push them back into the hat, then you can’t take the hat off since your hair will be stuck in an awkward style, but if you leave them down, the bangs get plastered onto your forehead. That’s why someone invented the Bang-Go. This combination visor-hat allows your bangs to remain styled while shading your eyes from the sun. Too bad we’re more interested in form than function.

I burn easily and absolutely must wear a hat when I go to the beach. While I usually don the baseball cap I’ve had for about eight years (perfectly broken in and also a little smelly), I think a straw hat would look a lot more sophisticated. And who knew they came in so many flavors!? Here are 10 of my favorites. Keep reading »
Catherine and I are obsessed with hats. I can’t wait for the weather to commit to Spring so I can break out my awesome woven straw fedora. In the meantime, we enjoy looking at pictures of guys in hats because most of the time, it makes for some serious sex appeal. Unless they are covering a majorly receding hair line.

Usher is a five-time Grammy-winner, a partial owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers, and a master of catchy songs and slick — maybe too slick — dance moves. My friend Geoff and I watch the video for his new song “Love In This Club” and try to figure out what’s going on. Videos can be so confusing.
Catherine: Let me guess, he’s in a club.
Geoff: It looks like the one strip club I’ve ever been to. I suppose most of them look the same, though. Keep reading »
“Woman who love to play with fantasy are naturally disposed to a hat,” explains Alison Waters, a hat-wearer who lives in Melbourne, Australia. “A hat makes you feel marvelous and lifts your mood instantly. It’s an accessory that completes everything, not just the face.” In fact, Alison never leaves the house without one of her 160 hats atop her head. This Sunday is Easter (if you celebrate), and the only day that might be more associated with hats might be the Kentucky Derby. While wearing a hat is no longer a requirement in society — the only time I wear a hat is when I go to a baseball game or when it’s chilly outside — designers are still putting hats on the runway, season after season. If you’re planning on sporting a bonnet this Sunday, check out some options after the jump, and let us know whether you’d wear them in the comments. Keep reading »
