As fashion week approaches, everything in our wardrobe is feeling either plain or tired or both. Packing for the occasion usually means a few purchases—we know this about ourselves already. But this time around, we’re stuck on the hunt for a hat. It’s winter in New York and a warm hat will be key to keeping our temperatures high. But with seasonal sales dwindling in all the major stores, we haven’t been able to find an ideal hat. That is, a hat with character. Something with style and substance. Something other than a beanie—just for the fun of it.
A few of our favorite hat designers include: Eugenia Kim, Mischa Lampert, Albertus Swanepoel, and Jennifer Ouellette; and as you might have guessed, we’re avidly stalking them on eBay. Our requirements? Must be unexpected. Something with a twist. Whimsical is wonderful—as long as it’s warm!
