Fall/ Winter 2014-2015 Headwear Trend #1: Fur Hats
Fur hats are one of the primary and most noteworthy options we would like to talk about. It’s luxurious, comfy, warm, and just feminine, so why don’t you give it a try? This was the question that got a “yes” answer in case of Badgley Mischka, Rebecca Minkoff, and Crosby Derek Lam collections, which came up with significantly voluminous and impressive solutions for the fur hats also having some retro touches inspired by the ‘60s looks.
In addition, the interesting forms and shade solutions presented by Missoni are also worth mentioning, especially taking into account the bright and burning tones of orange and yellow. The karakul types are really popular for such looks. As for shows like Lanvin fall/ winter 2014-2015, furry details were used to synthesize some no traditionally cold season looks into such, which absolutely fitted into the season. Thus they created some cool brim hats with the help of adding some fur accents around it, lavishly volumizing the whole look.
The options suggested by Daks and Dsquared2 are also worth mentioning. What is especially curious in case of the hats by Daks is the ideal identical match of those black high hats with the bearskin the royal guards of Her Majesty traditionally wear.
Turning fur into detail for hoodies, Fendi and Preen by Thornton Bregazzi created some very suitable and cool fear-not-the-cold looks. Similar pieces with much greater proportions of femininity and charm have been introduced by Dolce & Gabbana.
Another super significant interpretation with fur is the huge diversity of the earflap hats presented by fashion houses like Preen and Moncler Gamme Rouge. The top classic and chic variants were introduced by Jean Charles de Castelbajac illustrated with a big variety of shades. The elegant and graceful options by Simonetta Ravizza are also worth being in our list.
Fall/ Winter 2014-2015 Headwear Trend #2: Knitted Hats
Knitted hats never get off the runways for fall/winter seasons (Check out: How to Wear a Beanie). For the coming season they are again having a moment, coming with a big diversity of looks, types, and interpretations and just different color solutions possible. Being comfortably laid on the head and looking comfy and chic, they really have their place in the fave list of ladies and fashion designers. Thus, talking about the basic shapes and looks we can note the stripy patterns suggested by Hunter Original first of all. In addition, we can also speak about the high types presented by Public School and being especially suitable for the ladies having a round face shape.
For those with an oval shape of the face, any type of knitted hats may do, like the berets by John Galliano or the beanies by Giles. Tak.Ori is another fashion house, which is really popular with the diverse options of knitted hats. The triangle forms adorned with leopard prints are one of the most noteworthy options of this type. The cute beanies suggested by Polo Ralph Lauren are another nice option to try out. Tommy Hilfiger, Moschino, and Maison Rabih Kayrouz are also included among the best options.
Fall/ Winter 2014-2015 Headwear Trend #3: Berets
Berets form the following noteworthy fashion trend for the coming season. This is a universal option for all women with any face shape and height. It also has the touch of French elegance and charm, which makes the looks with berets especially chic and glam. Thus, the options suggested by Badgley Mischka, John Galliano, Ralph Lauren are some of the basic berets you can look through. As for the totally eye-catching variants, Rodarte aces that, presenting a whole conglomeration of glittery berets taken with any shade you can imagine.
Fall/ Winter 2014-2015 Headwear Trend #4: Caps
The following interesting trend for headwear is that of the caps, which can again be found with various shapes and styles. This option is especially suitable for those ladies, who give their preference to sporty and casual style. And since they are meant for colder season, they need to be warm, too. Thus, fashion houses like A. F. Vandevorst came up with really curious variants of caps with an ideally rounded top part, the cap going below the eyebrow line. The sporty looks by DKNY are also worth mentioning, coming with prints like the logo of New York. Dsquared2 came up with some brighter alternatives made of snakeskin, while Custo Barcelona accentuated the top in blinding and catchy tones possible.
For even classier options you can look through the styles suggested by Samuji, in case of which we have some jockey-inspired options with extra warming layers underneath. As for the pieces by Moncler Gamme Rouge, here we have some more feminine and cuter variants, which may also be useful for your picks.
Fall/ Winter 2014-2015 Headwear Trend #5: Classic Hats
The classic forms of the hats do not miss out of the shows, either. Just the contrary! The wonderful diversity of the options we encounter during various fashion shows really charms and impresses us. So we can speak about the oversized bowler hats suggested by Emporio Armani and A Détacher, as well as the alternatives inspired by the Western cowboy style introduced by Cushnie et Ochs and Lanvin. In addition, we can speak about the Amish hats of Tibi, the cloche hats of Dsquared2 and Badgley Mischka, the fedora hats of Ralph Lauren and Saint Laurent, as well as the super classy variants found in the collections of Christian Siriano, Donna Karan and Public School. The extravaganza suggested by Donna Karan, for instance, was ideally matched with feathery details.
In any case, picking the hat according to your body and face type is the key to the successful looks. You can thus go for options like the ones suggested by Barbara Cassasola and Cushnie et Ochs if you are not tall, since these hats do not have too elongated and wide brims and the looks like the wide-brim options suggested by Lanvin should be excluded from your list. The exaggerated forms of the brims form the key looks of Concept Korea collection.
Fall/ Winter 2014-2015 Headwear Trend #6: Pom-Pom Hats
Pom-pom hats have always been the most playful and cute alternatives for hats. Thus coming as a separate trend for the season, they again manage to hold their positions, coming as the key details for the collections of Tommy Hilfiger, Acne Studios and Hunter Original.
Fall/ Winter 2014-2015 Headwear Trend #7: Snoods, Chadors & Kerchiefs
The last but not least fashion trend we would like to talk about is the inclination towards headwear pieces like snoods, chadors and kerchiefs. It’s noteworthy that snoods were the primary forms of such options that emerged since last season. This time, however, they also inspired the designers to come up with the chadors like the alternatives we noted during the Dolce & Gabbana show. The luxurious details like jewels and beads nicely completed the images created with chadors. As for the kerchiefs, the bright animal-inspired prints were the main options that we could see the kerchiefs with.
Fall/ Winter 2014-2015 Headwear Trend #8: Fez-Like Hats
One more curious trend we noted among many collections was the fez-like shape of hats, the designers picked for their collections. The specific fez-shaped hats (of course, coming without the tassel) were quite noteworthy for collections like Tia Cibani, Creatures of Comfort, John Galliano and Carolina Herrera.
Thus, here were the basic fall/ winter 2014-2015 headwear trends that we observed during the fashion shows for the coming cold season. So go on following the world fashion trends with us and be the stylish and cool lady all around!
