Since the groundhog declared six more weeks of winter a few weekends ago, I’ve noticed hats becoming a major trend here at James Madison! We’ve all been battling the dreaded freezing temperatures and upcoming snow storm by keeping our ears covered in cable knit, wool and faux fur. Rightly so, since the human body releases a majority of its heat through the ears (finally using those fun facts from my general education classes). This Fashionista has been following the trend with her adorable blush beanie. I’ve always been a little wary about sporting this type of hat, but after spotting this Fashionista I will definitely need to try it!
The simple design of the hat ensures it will match almost anything and keeps the look more subtle. I’m absolutely in love with the color since I’ve always been a neutral girl! Similar styles can be purchased from PacSun or Forever 21. Is this a tad bit too plain for you? There’s also the option of beanies with pom poms, fun prints and fur lining if you’re interested in something more dramatic!
This Fashionista chose a basic outfit of jeans, a T-shirt, sunglasses and a comfortable but still stylish plaid jacket. Similar outwear can be found at NASTY GAL or even Wal-Mart! To fight the frostbite, she opted for her trusty chestnut UGGs made from cozy sheepskin. These may not be everyone’s taste, but they’re guaranteed to keep your feet nice and toasty!
