I need a hat, and some inspiration!

ThinkOfTheMice Mon 07-Nov-16 23:04:26

I knit my own. Much warmer than anything I've ever bought, and look better too. Use good quality wool.

Minus thirty here last winter so decent headgear a must!

A woolly one. Hth

i have a couple of floppy velvet paddington bear style black hats....tend to wear these for dog walking, or shopping, they squish into a pocket nicely and do not catch the breeze.

I have a fake black fur cossack effort, only worn when feeling v glam.

and i have a monsoon plush thing that (also black) is surprisingly versatile as the brim rolls flattish, or sits out nicely and the hat itself sits up and proud, or will pull down and sit more fitted.

I have seen a lot of wool type hats about abut recently so I may investigate a cloche or fedora type. Mind you, it's so damned windy here, that's probably not wise.

I have a baggy "rasta" knitted hat which just has elastic round the mouth. You can squash it any way you like.
And a Fair Isle pompom hat with matching gloves which are very cute but not stylish.
I've also been known to borrow DS's Davy Crockett hat (minus the tail)!

I have the Hush cashmere beanie hat - expensive but the way it's knitted doesn't give me hat hair, and it is SO cosy. Last year I bought a really lovely cloche hat, but rarely wore it as I need something that can be stuffed into my handbag.

I'm wearing a lovely soft grey cabled hat that I knitted myself.

I have bought this in blue. Only worn once and so far so good. My winter coat is navy so it looks good with that.

Ooooo I love a good hat, I have quite a variety of winter hats, a wool beret, mohair beret, sheep skin cossack hat (very from Russia with love), velvet floppy hat with the brim pinned up at a jaunty angle, chenille slouchy brimmed hat and the usual wool beany. Sadly the last of the hats i made as a teen died last year, so will be needing to make a silk and velvet 1920's style ridding hat to replace it.

The woolly bobble hats in the mantaray section in Debenhams are my favourite!! grin

I've found a Dutch (?) brand called Barts, they have several really great alternatives.

Classic black beret. Plus scarf and gloves.

I've got two bobble hats with oversized fur bobbles but as every other Mum in the playground has one I'd like something different. I'd like something a loose and slouchy but my head is massive so nothing's ever slouchy!

Joules fair isle bobble hat

NoNoNotAgain Wed 09-Nov-16 06:24:31

Thanks all. I fancy something slouchy too, but haven't found the right thing. Knitted wool (ie not wool felt type) makes my head itch, unless I go for cashmere, so it's an expensive choice!

If wool is making you itch but cashmere is ok then you're probably just wearing cheap wool - virtually all high street buyable hats and knitwear are cheap wool.

Buy a ball of alpaca or something and knit your own.

SuperFlyHigh Wed 09-Nov-16 17:20:02

Russian fur thing, I think I've got a wool one too

SunnyL Wed 09-Nov-16 17:23:12

I wear DDs hat which i bought at the church fayre for £1

Thatwaslulu Wed 09-Nov-16 17:24:23

I can't pull a hat off, much as I would love to. I don't suit any style I have tried so far.

P1nkP0ppy Wed 09-Nov-16 17:30:27

I never wear hats, they make my head itch regardless of whether they're wool, cashmere or whatever.
I will resort to ear muffs if I really have to.

bojorojo Wed 09-Nov-16 17:33:01

Fox fur from Russia.

Dowser Wed 09-Nov-16 18:13:28

I do not suit hats.
However I hate cold heads
So my go to hat is a grey wool baker boy with peak I can tuck my ears in.

SunsetBeetch Wed 09-Nov-16 18:39:58

I have a black, sparkly beret with a flower on the side, a light grey beanie with silver gemstones all over it, and a dark grey cable knit beanie. I do like a good hat.
