You can leave your hat on.

Winter temperatures often call for headgear to keep us toasty warm (is it true we lose our body heat through our heads?) and wool berets, fur cossack and baker boy style caps are often at the forefront of our winter accessory wish lists, but it seems that there is a new kind of sartorial headgear in town and being sported by fashionista's in both their 20's and 40's on both sides of the pond....


Renowned for their unique sense of style, both our very own Fearne Cotton and Sex and the City's Sarah Jessica Parker have been throwing caution to the wind and hoping their headgear won't get caught in a storm by leaving their usual winter headwear options at home and wearing a Fedora when out and about on crisp autumn days.



It seems sunglasses are an essential pairing to this headgear micro trend and I would love your thoughts on whether you think you could, or more importantly would, rock a Fedora this winter or do you prefer to stick with a bobble hat?

M&S Fedora £29.50.

  3. This has inspired me to pull out my hat. Only problem is with the Welly wind, one must remember to hold onto ones hat:)

  4. Love hats - my wooly one only comes out if it is really cold - and even then it's more of a beret!

  5. I'm totally a hat girl. Can't do without mine all year round. They really make a difference to an outfit.

  8. Hi my dear! Lovely post, I love hats but noticed that its really a baker boy style that suits me the best, even though I love fedoras and trilbys, Fern looks fab here! Thanks for the well wishes, am having some bad 'womens problems' but should be seeing a gynacologist very soon now xxx

  10. I love my winter woolly hats - can't stand a cold head! I do like the 'Fed' but would probably be a bit too much going on with my geek specs! x

  11. Apparently, I am in the minority. I don't do hats. None. Not even the hoods attached to some of my coats. I am just not a hat person; although I love to see them on other people. If it is true that we lose most of our heat through our heads - well, then that would explain why I'm always cold!

  15. Love all the ones you featured on the various celebrities. I was trying on hats yesterday and I couldn't decide if I actually suited them or not. I tried on a fedora style one but I thought I looked a bit like a letter T in it. Small person, big hat = letter T.

  16. I love hats but don't wear them that often. I favour the peaked cap style. OH is generally heard to mutter disparaging comments about Oliver Twist when I do! The Fedora looks great though - might have to give it a go and see if it works on me.

  17. I am more a cloche hat lady and have also a couple of stylish pull on hats fur and wool, not to mention summer straw hats. I would love to wear more. A definite stylish accessory!

  18. I love hats on other people but sadly they don't suit me at all!

  19. I think that fedoras are far better than beanies for keeping the snow off your face when it's really cold. Plus there's the added advantage of looking really cool when you're wearing one. x

  20. I'm not really a hats person but I always admire them on others. Love Sarah Jessica Palmer's coat too.

  21. I love fedoras and bobble hats and would happily wear either depending on my mood.

  22. Love the wide-brimmed fedora! I'm hoping this cooler weather sticks around longer here, so I can justify actually wearing a hat.
