Trendspotting: Fur Hats
The month of September has just started, and already a number of cold-weather outfits are popping up in the Style Gallery. One of my favorite looks for the upcoming fall and winter seasons is the Dr. Zhivago-esque fur hat. These retro Russian beauties have recently been crowing the heads of many a stylish Chictopian. Not only are these hats eccentric and intriguing, but they’re also exceedingly practical when it comes to the defense of chilly fall breezes and biting-cold winter snow flurries. Not sure how to pull of this unusual accessory? Check out the following Chictopians, and see how they worked the oversized fur hat!
We love the way Chictopia Style Icon, FashionisaPlayground implemented this trend. Her calm, creamy top, flowing black maxi skirt, and tough black boots act as the perfect backdrop to showcase the full splendor of her luxurious brown fur hat, while keeping with the Russian-chic fashion vibe. To keep things glamorous, she’s added a dash of brilliant scarlet lipstick—-the perfect touch to any outfit!

Backwaan goes for a more eclectic and theatrical look by pairing her fur topper with a dramatic cropped caplet, fanciful patterned tights, and vintage gold jewelry. We admire her daring fashion attitude in playing up the flamboyance of the huge fur hat! She tones down the noticeable style of her outfit by sticking to a neutral, black and grey color scheme; ideal for fall and winter.

What a better title for this photo? yOka’s ensemble seems to fully center around the elegance and mystery of her beige fur hat. She sports a pair of Audrey Hepburn -esque black shades, adding a touch of modern spy glam with a perfectly-fitting black leather jacket, skinny jeans, and ankle boots. One word: fierce!
As you can see, there are so many different ways to wear this unique accessory. Fur hats haven’t hit most chain stores yet, so scout out your local vintage clothing store or Etsty to snap up one of these terrific toppers. You’d better hurry—-these are bound to sell out fast!
