BERETS and beanies, cloches and caps, trilbies and trappers - hats in every size, shape and style are the ultimate topping this season.
Often a product of fashion’s mood for nostalgia, at Gucci wide-brimmed fedoras added to the air of Seventies glamour, Marc Jacobs’ chin-strapped pillbox caps fed into the Forties feel and Burberry Prorsum’s berets completed Sixties styling.
A trend that’s no stranger to high drama, oversized headpieces gave John Rochas’ models the appearance they might topple over, while Lanvin’s low-hanging black sheriff hats sat way below eye line. At John Galliano, hats of every incarnation were covered, from ornate feathered fascinators to sequin-covered berets complete with demure eye veils.
For the easiest ways to work the trend into your wardrobe look to Missoni and its knitted beanies, which balance practicality with winter chic.
