Here's a hat trick...

Just because it's chilly with the promise of snow doesn't mean one has to hide behind a woollen beanie 'til March, the humble tea cosy is making way for a more glamorous breed of headwear. The gates have been thrown open for everyone from the fourties inspired fedora to the floppy felt sun hat.

Fearne Cotton in another leopard print felt sun hat

Both are much akin to this offering from Urban Outfitters for £40

I love the deep Maroon of this Trillby from Topshop £25

I really like the idea of a Trillby or Fedora adorned with feathers on the band, almost reminiscent of a 1940's journalist's hat where they would tuck their notes into the band.

Like so

I do like the above offering from Topshop, but I prefer my feathers to be a little more eyecatching. This is how I gave a simple £7.99 felt fedora from H&M a bit more kick..

Add peacock feathers bought from Ebay to said fedora by tucking into the band

And you have your own feather adorned fedora!
