The flawless Audrey Hepburn dons a small fur hat.
Since I moved to NYC, I feel the need to step it up a notch in terms of style. People certainly take fashion risks here -- but at the same time, they're not really risks, but a way of self-expression. I think it's an easy place to feel more comfortable with yourself. Adjusting to the cold weather has been a definite challenge, and whereas I never had the need for a faux fur hat in the South, I would very much like one now. I was always was leery of this look because I'm not sure how to wear one without looking like something landed on my head and died.
I love the classic fur pillbox style hats, but there's so many different styles -- rock 'n roll a la Janis Joplin or outdoorsy chic like what Jessica Alba is wearing. Below is a mix of inspiration from both the past and present.
