When the temperature is almost below zero and there is snow covering everything in sight, it is, without a doubt, the most appropriate time to throw on as many warm layers as possible. Walking through campus on such a cold day, everyone is sporting their heaviest winter coats and boots, as well as their newest and warmest accessories. The most popular accessory of the winter season appears to be headwear. From beanies and earmuffs to knit headbands, almost everyone is bundled up from head to toe, ready to face the below freezing temperatures!
This week’s Fashionista puts a twist—literally—on typical winter headwear. Having to trek through the snow on her way to class, this Fashionista layered on not only her clothing, but also her accessories. Paired with a navy blue coat and black jeans, she finishes off her look with a Betmar black velvet turban hat that she discovered in a local vintage store. With the illusion of twisted fabric in the front, as well as the unique velvet fabric itself, this Fashionista was able to easily glam up her winter style.
When it comes to headwear, there is always something that can fit to your style. A velvet turban headband is perfect for the urban Fashionista. For the sophisticated Fashionista, fur earmuffs are a simple addition to any outfit. For the sporty Fashionista, a vibrant colored beanie is a practical statement piece. With so many options, headwear is a great way to express your individual style.
No matter what type of headwear suits your style, bundling up in these freezing temperatures is not only a must, but something that can be done in style. Take advantage of those snowy days to show off the best of your winter headwear!
Spotted: Turban-style headwear is not only for those cold, winter days. They made an appearance in Erin Featherston’s spring 2008 ready-to-wear collection.
