Your lifestyle, your quirk
I hate to think about it, but cold and snowy weather will be here before we know it. It’s actually hard to believe just over a month ago most of us were sweating to death; now here we are, coordinating sweaters to our outfits.
Snow is pretty when you’re inside looking out, but it can be a real drag if your snow day years are long behind you. It’s hardly my favorite kind of weather, but the one perks is it gives fashionistas the chance to wear fabulous cold weather garments and accessories. One hot and incredibly fun faux fur item is the trapper hat.
Trapper hats, or Elmer Fudd hats as I like to call them, were popular last year, and they are back for cold weather 2012. These fun hats are already hitting the fashion scene long before we actually need to wear them.
It seems like the whole fashion world is having a mad love affair with faux fur, and my guess is the romance will take us right into the new year. Trapper hats, along with other faux fur items, have been popping up in fashion layouts and coming down runways since the middle of the summer.
Trapper hats have come a long way from being necessary to stay warm to being necessary to stay in style. I am not looking forward to the snow, but like the rest of my fellow fashionistas, I will be wearing a faux fur trapper hat long before the snowflakes hit the ground.
Some of these hats can actually be quite pricey, but you will have no problem finding one to fit your budget. My motto will be “the bigger the better,” but you can work this trend your own way, and there are lots of options.
You don’t have stick with faux fur if really you don’t think you can pull it off; there are lots of fabric options for this hat style: plaids, prints, and solids in wool and synthetics. My mind is set on full-on faux fur, but if you can’t make a decision on faux or no, just opt for a bit of fur trim or even a reversible style, so you have two hats in one.
