If I had a quarter for every time throughout the winter I heard my mother remind me to put a hat on my head and scarf around my neck, I’d be rich! What I didn’t realize as a child is that the combination of a hat and scarf is more than just a means to stay warm - it’s a true fashion statement. From bright colors in big knit scarves to plaid scarves, this year is all about scarves that compliment your hats.
Whether you’re headed to the ski lodge or an awards show or headed to work, everyone who is anyone is wearing a scarf. Hollywood’s youngest trend-setters are showing their fashion sense in plaid, but the one thing their missing to really polish the look is a trendy hat.
For these fashion forward ladies, may I suggest something like the Belfry Street Insular. It’s casual and trendy at the same time. Not to mention will keep your warm on cold December days.
As one fashion trend that is really here to stay, the hat and scarf combination works for both men and women. Guys have found popular pub caps and street fedora hats work just as well with scarves as a knit hat. With stars like Ne-Yo rockin’ a trendy man’s hat every time he leaves his house, it’s only natural to add a scarf as temperatures drop.

From casual to dressy, be sure to stock your closet with a variety of hats and scarves for this winter. Not only is it something you should buy yourself, hats and scarves make great stocking stuffers at the holidays, too!
