STYLE WATCH: CAT EAR HAT
Cat in the Hat
Fall and Winter have always been my favorite times of year. My mother use to always say, “That’s how you know who can really dress”. And if you really think about it, it’s kind of true. The spring and summer months are effortless. Throw on a maxi dress and flip flops and you’re out the door. But the fall and winter, that’s the time to get creative with layering and accessories. The right scarf, hat or gloves could be just the thing to set off an entire ensemble and create a new trend. This fall we’re seeing many trends such as the wide brim hat make reappearance, but the new must have accessory is the Cat Ear hat. Many celebrities have embraced their inner kitty and put their own twist on this trend. Let’s not forget when the Queen B slayyyyed in her Givenchy kitty hat and ensemble during the On the Run Tour this past summer. Yessss B!!!!

But if you’re like me, I can’t afford to wear Givenchy on a daily bases so I’m forced to find a more price conscious alternative. Forever21 just released a beanie version of this hot trend for as low as $9.90. Even the Kardashians put their own spin on the cat ear releasing a kitty sleeper suit by WildFox Couture for under $100.

This hat is a fun and easy piece to add a little pizzazz to any ensemble. Try it with a sleek pair of sequin pants, cardigan and a cute pointed toe pump when you’re heading out for drinks with the girls or a night out on the town. Perfect for day to night.

Not only is it a great staple for your wardrobe that can be dressed up or down, but it’s a practical enough fashion statement that will keep you warm while your strutting the catwalk aka the sidewalk. What spin can you fashionistas put on the new trend?
