FW06 Trend: Winter Hats

I was about to devote a blog on how much I love all the winter beanies just floating around everywhere this season and recommend a few that I liked. But then I went out and tried on a few and it occured to me that winter beanies are just about the hardest thing for anyone to wear- especially the ones this season! They looked so different on me than on the mannequin (and the next girl) that I realised that one simply cannot tell from pictures whether a hat is cool of not.

Even here on the Burberry Prorsum runway, the same hat looks so different from one model to another. It looks SO much better on Gemma (left) than on Hye Park (right). Maybe its the head shape, I have the same problem. I found a similar hat and it looked awful on me, which is just too bad, because this picture of Gemma is what inspired to me write this blog and go look for a cool slouchy looking beanie like that to begin with. Perhaps I haven't found the right one yet?

Other hats from Burberry Prorsum. She looks cute with that navy ridged beanie with a cap thing (left) but I can't quite see it looking good on people in the streets. Sasha (right) looks kind of scary here, but its probably just her expression. That beanie doesn't look too bad on her.

On the Marc by Marc Jacob's runway we have these wider rimmed hats. I rather like the wide rimmed beanie thing he has there (left). She looks effortlessly cool there. Then there is the patent leather fisherman hat thing (right). It looks alright, but I think I've gotten over the whole fisherman hat thing back a few years ago and am not ready for it to come back yet.

And these two pictures are the ones that sometime makes me doubt whether the designers have tried the whole outfit on the model properly before letting them on the runway. Because she looks dreary and childish with that droopy white hat (left: burberry prorsum) usually seen on an enfant and she just looks too old to be wearing that cutesy cap thing(right: J Mendel).

And some trends are just destined to remain on the runway. I love the Balenciaga FW06 collection and all, but if I see someone on the streets wearing this, I will laugh so hard.

I do like the brims on knit hats. I think it gives it a casual look that could translate into cool fall weather as opposed to being purely for winter. I think the riding hats would be hardest to pull off but you never know...

lovin' the hat thing! i don't think hats are something you should follow trends too closely with, as whatever hat is most fashionable could quite easily make you look like a clown, whereas if you find one that's not quite so on-trend, but suits you better, you're gonna look gorgeous!

i love pulling the beanie very low over your forehead, to me it gives the illusions of your features enlarging. But that's just me. I think beanies are best worn in neutral colors and those with long hair. I love the ones at fall/winter 2006 D&G. White and grey are definitely my favorite beanie colors. Very effortlessly chic. Nice post by the way, loveee knit hats.

I love hats and have worn them quite often and I agree that hats are something that shouldn't be followed trend-wise or else it takes the chicness out of wearing one. I think beanies... though trendy now... are a great winter style.

i love the mj hat... and i also have the same problem with the funky head shape. sometimes i feel like i cant even pull my hair back into a ponytail because something about the shape of my head is just... off.

i love the way beanies LOOK on the runway,but like you say, it's hard to translate to normal everyday streetwear without loking too contrived,in some cases....anyways...have you seen this picture of mary kate and ashley? it kind of makes her look more..mature, but also very chic..

I recently bought a hat similar to the Burberry Prorsum one at top, except black with some ribbon trim. It too looked awful on me when I tried it on over my forehead like that, but then I put it on the back of my head, pushed all my hair into it, and added these little brushed-silver clips (did any of that make sense?), and it looked adorable, and I wear it a lot.

I love the hat that Gemma is wearing. It's so pretty and looks great with her long hair. I'm sorely tempted to go scouting around for something similar.

Hats are such an intimate accessory. They have to compliment your face, your head (of course:), and your style. I recommend not following current trends and going for something a little more classic. If you find the right one for you, it will be timeless. You can, truly make it your signature, and wear it for years down the road. I just bought a custom-made hat from The Hat Shop, NYC, check them out!

KOOL..I like the Burberry Prorsum Hats like Sasha is wearing,but nothing much is said about what the hats are made of? Acrylic for feel and warmth doesn't really cut it.I bought a hat from alpacaxtreme.com and love the feeling alpaca gives me.
