With it’s wavy brim and lacy top, this is just the hat I’d grab for heading out on my way to a warmer indoor scene in the winter. My hair tends toward awful hat head, but I’d just leave this one on once I’d arrived.

Wear it with boots and charm bracelets to funky it up a little or keep it classy with a twinset and pearl choker. This beret is just waiting for you to make it your own.
