Ah… Fur Hats! Another fashion trend for 2013 Winter that has me reminiscing on my childhood and how I hated wearing hats. 20 Years later and… I love them, hell I’m wearing them in Autumn and Spring as well so talk about a style twist there. The best thing about Fur Hats is that, besides looking super cool and stylish they keep us warm and comfy, and I always thought how interesting it is that a fully covered up neck and head will keep you warmer than boots or thick trousers. Hmm. Furry heads have been around for centuries, just think about those Russian aristocratic ladies in the 1800’s who looked so ravishing in them while keeping warm on a blistering cold in Moscow. Perhaps it’s a case of who’s again guilty for this fashion trend revival… ding! Anna Karenina remake? (click here to read more on the Russian Trend). After all Keira Knighteley perfectly portrays the image of the Russian woman who adores furs, pearls and lace, all covered up in thick expensive fabrics, yet oozing utter femininity and seductiveness. And, as trends usually have their own lives and fashion roads The Fur Hat Trend is of no exception. Before massively hitting the big high-street retailers and then turning into a street -style, a trend always begins on the runway. Marc Jacobs and Temperley London had envisioned the 2012- – 2013 Autumn/Winter fashion as a return to an opulent comfort and coziness. With collections that were packed with fur hats of all sorts, designs, cuts and colors – they now gave us a free pass at these fabulous rich looking accessories. Big, small, fake fur, real fur, black, brown, white, red or super bright colored, all fuzzy & airy or au contraire thick and dense, the furs of these now so fashionable hats satisfy all tastes and styles.
Depending on what look and style you’re going for, you can choose a fur hat to match. For a Stylish even Glam approach you can opt for a black simple hat, without flaps and let your hair loose. Statement earrings will give a bit of a sophisticated touch when barely seen from behind your mane and furry accessory. It goes perfect with a coat in any style and boots. You can wear jeans, dresses, skirts, shorts and tights, trousers with it dress it up or down. For a more Chic and Fashion forward look go for big fur hats with flaps and high boots. Any jacket or coat goes with them, depending on your style. Sporty chic: parkas. Classic with a twist: coats. Edgy: leather jacket. A pair of earrings or statement necklace will jazz it up a bit. Personally these big fuzzy fur/fake fur hats with flaps are my favorite. They just make any look less pretentious, yet extremely stylish and sophisticated while keeping you warm. It has a bit of that effortlessly cool vibe to it. For some inspiration check out how models wear these amazing fur hats off duty, or how celebs choose to stay comfy in style with them.

Plus it oozes a rather refined richness and accessible extravagance, don’t you think?
