hot head


My husband and I ventured back to Colorado's snow-capped mountains over the long weekend along with some good friends. Having just been on a ski trip, I thought I knew exactly what to pack: a fun faux fur jacket like this (or a luxe one) for dinners out and a pair of sexy booties to go with (exactly what I want to wear after sporting clunky ski boots all day), relaxed but outfit-making tops like this and this that I can easily throw a sweater over, plus a few cozy turtlenecks and cardigans. But I got only as far as LAX--i.e., not very far!--when I realized I was lacking one very important winter accessory. At the airport, we met my friend Hillary, with whom we were traveling, who was wearing a wide brimmed wool hat by Rag & Bone. Though the rest of her outfit was fairly simple--a pair of skinny jeans, a loose-fitting grey cable knit sweater and knee-high black boots--she was the essence of Alpine-glam. And she proved that a good hat can elevate any look to summit highs! So, now my next winter getaway won't be complete without one of these snow-friendly toppers from Topshop, Eugenia Kim or Saint Laurent.

I love, love, love hats! And I agree they instantly make anyone look more stylish. Here's a question for you--how do you handle your hair when you spend a day in a hat? Do you take the hat off indoors?

Hi Anne, That's weird that the first link is not working on your end. It's working when I click on it. Anyway, here's the link again: http://bit.ly/1eBOWju
