Although scientists have debunked grandmother’s wisdom that you lose 45% of your body heat through your head, hats are still an absolute necessity of winter life here in the Northeast. In fact, I’ve read that the face, head and chest are actually more sensitive to temperature changes than the rest of the body, so a snuggly hat keeps you extra cozy as temperatures plummet.
I happen to love hats of all kinds—from felt fedoras, to straw picture hats, to faux fur Cossack hats. But one of the best ways I’ve found to stay warm stylishly this season is the Scala Winter Cloche. This cloche is so pretty and frames the face just beautifully.
The Scale Winter Cloche is crafted from a soft boiled wool knit and has a shired hatband with a rolled brim. This hat is a true chameleon and looks fabulous with every coat in my closet – North Face jacket, navy peacoat, even my long wool dress coat.
Not only is this a super stylish chapeau, the Scala Winter Cloche is also packable. This means you can squash it into a suitcase and have it come out looking exactly like it did when it went in. Leave it in your car over the weekend. Shove it into a coat pocket. It literally springs back to life – beautifully!
This stunner is available in classic black, trendy charcoal or camel, and flattering plum, red, or wine. Retail $30.
