Few things cap off a satisfying meal quite like the profiterole. It’s creamy and airy and sometimes drizzled in chocolate, all of which is making me salivate just thinking about it. This light, fluffy hat is similarly meant to be the perfect topper to your favorite outfit. It has just enough detail to be interesting without being a distraction from the other items you’re wearing, so it can blend well with your existing wardrobe while still being a fun addition.
