The best way to brighten up a dull wintry day?  A great hat.  Back in the 1900’s through the era of Jackie O and the now-iconic pillbox hat, a lady always wore a hat (and gloves-we’ll chat about that topic another day).  Now it takes either a Mad Men inspired party or a cold or rainy day to don a hat.  Here are my top picks:


On the left:  A quirky combination of bohemian hippie chic  with its’ wide band and braided fringed tassels meets uptown girl with its’ panther print.  A hat that either you (or JLo) can rock.  Wear it with a fitted black sweater dress or a pair of bootleg jeans and a longer length tee or blouse and you’ll look great.  Fur Canyon hat in available at Barneys NY $225 at http://www.barneys.com/on/demandware.store/Sites-BNY-Site/default/Link-Product?

On the right, a camel colored version without the extra embellishments $46.55 available at

Military Style is everywhere.  You’ll be in shipshape form with this crisp cap pictured on the left by Jessica Simpson.  $28 available at http://www.polyvore.com/military_style_hats/shop?query=military+style+hats.  On the right is Calvin Klein‘s version for $40.  Note the interesting zipper band detail.

Trapper Hats are huge this winter.  Combine with shearling lining like the UGG version on the left $175 or faux fur like the hat by Cassin $135 on the right and you will have a hat that will not only keep you warm but you’ll be perfectly au courant.  Available at http://www.neimanmarcus.com/store/catalog/templates/P9.jhtml?itemId=cat15060744&parentId=cat2830735&masterId=cat2830732

Okay, so you aren’t going to wear these beauties to the office – uh, unless you work at Vogue, but for that special occasion these hats are stunning. Who can resist? Not for the shy-you will be noticed!  Eugenie Kim Cloche Ombre Feather Velour hat $485 on the left and Diane Von Furstenburg Shiloh hat on the right $285.
