If you’ve read this little corner of the ‘net for long enough, you’ll remember my little phase with the cossack hat. It’s the 2011 equivalent of todays fedora, and I was rarely seen without it- even making it part of my sixth form outfit (trust me, a suit has never looked so cool- erm, kind of). It almost amazes me that I had the confidence to wear it to school like some kind of modern day Sam Shakusky or wannabe Russian Princess (funnily enough my history A Level topic was Russian History, coincidence? I think not), when styling it with this outfit required a lot of thought, and worrying that it just looked like a wild emo haircut gone wrong.
Ok, perhaps I’m being a little dramatic- but I have to say I think I’ve rediscovered a bit of a staple (until you’ve felt how warm these hats are then you’ve not been cosy) and I am all for a little faux fur headwear- especially when paired with a cute pinafore and roll neck (Ok, I’m starting to sound about 80- but you get the idea)!
