Monday Wish List: Hats

It is easy to fall into an outfit rut in the winter. Nice coats are quite pricey which tends to limit our range of cool outerwear. Also there is the imperative of keeping WARM AND COSY, and that is something no fashionista should ever sacrifice.

So I find that accessorising becomes even more important when faced with cold weather constraints. A great scarf and chic leather gloves will go a long way. Because my main winter coats are black, I try to mix it up with some splashes of colour in order to avoid looking like a giant walking raven.

One of my favourite winter accessories has to be the Humble Hat. This little pieces of wool or felt can make or break any outfit and can take a girl from Winter Drab to Cool Fab.

Here are a few of my favourites:

Bring an extra touch of SASS with this wonderful geo-print number from Asos. Wear with a bomber jacket and nigh-tops for maximum Cara Delevinge-ness

Named after me, this Reiss hat is called Ava. I like to wear it with a knee-length black overcoat and leather boots to pretend I’m Carmen Sandiego.

Can you ever go wrong with Missoni? This black and white beanie goes with everything, even pyjamas. Style in whatever way you want and you will still look LUSH.

This Marc by Marc Jacobs neon beanie is bang on trend. Neon, yes; beanie, yes; Marc Jaconbs, YES! How can you go wrong? (Note: redheads are particularly well-suited for this hat).

And to add a little glitz to any drabby winter look, just add this huge and obnoxious BLING from Topshop!

Which one is your favourite?

Reiss Christmas wishlist

Reiss is one of my favourite British brands. It is effortlessly cool and sleek without being pretentious. I find myself reaching for my Reiss silk blouses more and more, especially around Christmas as a bustling social calendar makes it important to go from day to night with minimal conversion effort (read: look glam by changing in the office bathroom cubicle)!

So imagine my delight when they announced a new Christmas wishlist giveaway. All you have to do is create and submit a wishlist on their website and they will pick a winner each week betwen now and Christmas! Yay, indeed.
