Take your pick from some of this sea­son’s hat trends

Style Magazine - - Contents -

Re­gard­less of how much heat you do or don’t lose from your head, some of us just like to wear hats in cold weather be­cause they are warm and be­cause they make a fash­ion state­ment.

Of course, hat-wear­ing is in­trin­si­cally linked to hair-styling and match­ing the two is an age-old art. Learn the tech­niques our grand­moth­ers prac­tised or be­moan the hat-hair that fol­lows.

Most of us will, at some time — like a sport­ing event, en­joy the com­fort of a clas­sic wool-knit beanie with or with­out pom-poms.

Snug fit cloche styles are gor­geously ro­man­tic and retro but def­i­nitely need to match your gor­geously ro­man­tic, retro out­fit. And let’s be hon­est, only a few can re­ally rock a snappy beret and newsboy style — fab­ric please, never leather.

Win­ter hats are use­ful in pro­tect­ing your skin from that harsh Queens­land sun. Stick with felt Akubras for out­door work and keep your fe­do­ras and boaters for go­ing out.

If you want to make a big win­ter state­ment try an Amelia Erhart avi­a­tor style but do keep the gog­gles for when you are ac­tu­ally in the air.

The real win­ter ro­man­tics won’t be able to re­sist a fur hat like Lara’s in Dr Zhivago. Julie Christie wore them so well and the good news is, most peo­ple can. This is one style that tends to look fab­u­lous on ev­ery­one. They also tend not to be cheap. Luck­ily there are lots of fab­ric stores that stock faux fur — time to get stitch­ing Lara.
