Fur Hats

For everyday wear, the hat still takes center stage every season throughout the year. Many coveted design houses have upped the ante and created fur variations that appeal to all types of fashion lovers who need to keep warm from the top down. We’ve done the homework for you this season, so take ease and consider this our roundup of the most in-demand fur headwear for Fall 2013/Winter 2014.

Pillbox Hats

A nod to more sophisticated dressing, this age-old classic silhouette is flattering for many facial shapes and worn by fashionistas of all ages. Making a very strong statement, this look has an aura of a Russian fairytale romance by way of the classic film Dr. Zhivaago. This fall to channel your inner Jacqueline Kennedy or to become your own first lady of style, a swanky pillboox is a fail-safe pick that will never go out of style.

The French Beret

It’s common knowledge that French women do classic style like no other; ergo you can’t go wrong with any of the beret inspired styles we saw during the Fall 2013/Winter 2014 Shows. Traditionally, a military uniform headpiece  worn in a number of countries, the beret has been appropriated by mainstream fashion designers as a sure bet in collections. Style fiends who press pause on hats in general, because of the fear of “hat hair”, rest your pretty little heads, this look is for you! Simply put, the beret requires less of a hair commitment because it sits atop the head as opposed to being pulled completely down over it (trust us, the devil is in the details). A very chic bridge option between a casual whimsical and dressy look, the beret is Magnifique! baret

Head Scarves

Did you do a double take with this one? Well, so did we. This won a place on our list simply for being utterly unique and completely refreshing. Not just any head scarf, the ones that hit the runway this year were fur and extremely luxe. We applaud the Italian label Ermanno Scervino for taking a fashion risk that stopped us in our tracks! This makes us feel like everyone can be as mysteriously chic as Audrey Hepburn from her 1963 film Charade.

Hoodwinked

Okay, we know that technically this is cheating a bit. With so many wonderfully exaggerated hoods on equally fabulous coats throughout the Fall 2013/14 cycle we just had to call them out. In every variety, dressy or casual, the hoods resonated as the main attraction on many outerwear garments this year. With these stand out picks, who needs a hat?
