Nothing to wear? A non-village-idiot winter hat

Is it your head shape? Is it your face shape? Maybe it’s your nose. Whatever it is, every one you try on has you looking like Benny from Crossroads. Or, if you’re too young for that reference, Papa Smurf. Fear not: you’re truly not the only woman in the world who feels that God is yet to make the hat that suits you. And we’re here to help. This winter, you WILL go to the ball. Or at least the pub, not looking like a numpty.

The catwalk has decreed that berets are in fashion this winter. Ignore the catwalk. Unless you are Faye Dunaway, in which case, beret away. Otherwise, we very strongly advocate a pompom hat. A woollen hat sans pompom just looks too skullcap-esque to be flattering. Buy one with a turned-up cuff (trust us) with enough height that it doesn’t sit too snugly on your crown, but not so high that the top flops over. You may prefer to steer clear of black, on the basis that black hats make you look 102, and go for a softer, more skin-flattering hue such as beige, cream or – our favourite – Midult Pink. Which is like Millennial Pink, but for Midults.
