Well, it's official. Winter wonderland has officially embraced the East Coast and Midwest, and even much of the West is experiencing chillier than usual climes. Even if you're not a fan of the cold, there is a definite upside to the cool weater: hats. Yes, hats. And while we adore our structured, upscale millinery
(think: fedoras), we also love to have fun with our hats. (Think: poofy fur hats
, bright beanies
, and more.) Vivacious hats are also a great excuse to take style just a wee less seriously and have some fun.
