It's that time of year to start thinking about holiday gift giving! Below is our guide to finding the perfect hat style for the woman on your list, from the casual hat wearer to the always accessorized style masters.
Warm & Cozy Winter Favorites
Probably my favorite gift to give or receive in winter is any and everything warm and cozy. From plush blankets to fluffy slippers the crisp weather screams "wrap me in something soft and warm"
Our Italian Knitwear
Collection offers a variety of silhouettes that are throw on and go style. Made of wool and wool blends, they are designed to frame the face and keep the wearer warm. Some styles also offer a fleece lining for additional protection from cold winter days.
, the epitome of soft to the touch, luxury materials. Cap styles like the Belfry Nocera
are perfect for the woman who want to elevate her winter wardrobe and is perfectly paired with a classic trench or peacoat.
Another great option is our Velour cloche, the Belfry Messina
. Available in a deep wine, this hat is as easy to wear as any of the knits but has a dressier and more romantic look because of its rich velour feel and texture.
Flattering Shapes For All
Ah, the Cloche
. My go to style for the woman who says "I don't look good in hats". No matter the hair length or face shape, a classic cloche can be worn by almost anyone. Made popular at the height of women's hat fashion this shape has stayed in style for decades. Styles like the Belfry Fleur
remain true to the original design with the addition of a clean modern bow detail.
is a similar style to the cloche in the way it frames the face. The top of the hat is less domed and considered a little more modern. The bucket style has grown in popularity in the last few years, quickly becoming a staple piece in women's wardrobes. The fully lined Belfry Martina
is a great option with just the right touch of fall color and leaf detail.
An unstructured Beret like the Belfry Amina
is as comfortable to wear as any basic knit cap but in a whole other league when it comes to style. My favorite thing is the subtle feminine detail. The way the edge rolls up and the delicate knit stitching with the small flower on the side check all the design boxes.
The "WOW" Factor
If you're shopping for a fashion forward woman who loves a little extra check out our Ferruccio Vecchi
line. They are known for modern touches like chain and suede details that create real statement hats. One style we fell in love with on sight was the hand painted Belfry Conca
. If it's that special piece you can't find everywhere you're hunting for, this is that hat. Another eye catching style is the Belfry Emilia
with a wrap tie, not only serving to keep the wearers ears and neck warm, this elegant feature captures Italian style beautifully.
I also recommend our Complit line for stand out pieces. They have mastered the art of taking a clean silhouette and creating interest by how they finish the hat. The feather accent of the Belfry Rosina
and leather bow detail on the Belfry Cavone
are perfect examples their eye for design and the perfect option for a women with an exquisite taste level.
The Handmade for Belfry
Collection is known for classic hat styles like a Safari. Two of our top selling styles for Fall/ Winter are the Belfry Poppy
and Belfry Gwen
. Both are wool felt with leather detail and great everyday option. I love this style when dressing up a pair of jeans and pulling a casual outfit together.
And, of course, the classic Fedora
. We have fedoras available in a huge range of colors, style, and materials, some dressy and some more casual. A fun spin on the classic fedora is the Belfry Misa
. It has a short brim making it very easy to wear, while the rich teal color and flower make it stand out for all the right reasons.
