The Trendsetter: Winter Hat Dilemma Solved
The reality that winter has begun seems to completely sink in when the first winter snowstorm strikes. The first thing that goes through my mind is deciding how to look fashionable and trendy while keeping myself warm.
I like to think of winter accessories as something you can never have enough of…kind of like shoes and chocolate. But these winter necessities can also be a nuisance–especially winter hats.
Men have it easy. They can just wake up, throw on a hat and not worry about messing up their hair in the process of trying to avoid getting frostbite. For women on the other hand, hats are a bit of a struggle. We put time and effort into curling, straightening and blow-drying our hair so that it looks good the entire day and the last thing we want to do is mess it up before walking out of the door.
The new trend that will keep you warm and stylish is earmuffs or the knit winter headband. Both of these are great alternatives to the age-old hat and the best part is that they keep you warm without having to sacrifice your gorgeous do. A great place to find a variety of knit winter headbands is the local boutique A Stone’s Throw, located at 1925 Monroe St.
As a faux fur junkie, I can’t resist a pair of fuzzy and fashionable faux fur earmuffs. I love how they keep me warm and keep my hairdo in place.
Tip: This woman wears her headband over her hair but if your hair is of major concern, another option would be to pull all your hair through the headband so that it sits directly over your ears and forehead.
