As promised, some beautiful hat trends in the shops to keep yourself a-head in winter millinery fashion (see what I did there? Terrible, I know).
Although we most often think of headwear in the context of pretty hats and fascinators for weddings and race days in the hotter months, hats are just as relevant if not more so in winter. Take a look at these everyday beauties.
La Cerise Sur Le Chapeau
We’ll start with hats. This season’s take on the fedora goes back to its thirties origins. I particularly like this one by Eugenia Kim, brilliant for day and that bit of gold really helps warm things up.
A lighter weekend version is this beauty from La Cerise Sur Le Chapeau. These guys are particularly amazing as they provide a customize your own hat service, so maybe get it to complement the trusty winter coat? For those into a more fashion vibe, my absolute favourite is as follows, from American Brenda Lynn:

Another must-have in winter (and summer and any time really) is the trilby. What a versatile bit of millinery that, you can basically make a trilby to suit any occasion. I can’t wait for First Hat to be finished so that I can embark on a First Trilby project, soooo exciting! Here is one by Anthony Peto with a bit of leopard print to make it more exciting.
Continuing in the thirties theme is unlikely source Stella McCartney with her stunning cloche.
And let’s not forget the best of hair pieces for Autumn/Winter, the added benefit being that these can be work ALL THE TIME, indoors and out, day and night, casual and smart, etc etc etc! LOVE. But you’ll have to wait for the next post.
