While Houston's temperature has dipped low enough for us to venture into the realm of boots and cardigans, it's not quite time to bust out the wool coats and faux furs. So what's a girl looking to dress the part for a fall photo-op to do? Adding the right hat can make all the difference in the world.
Impossible to not look cute in, the beanie is the quintessential winter hat must-have. Versatile to the end of the season, your beanie will come in handy with a tank and scarf while out for a casual lunch or paired with a flowing top, leggings and your favorite booties. Ideally, neutral colors like gray, beige, and white will come in handy more often than not, but a beanie with funky patterns or a pop of color is no doubt an exciting way to accessorize. The fact that it adds actual warmth is surely a bonus.
Stylish and chic, we have seen the fedora make quite the comeback this season. Not tilted over one eye like Britney Spears circa 2005, but more laid-back, which works for both men and women. Adding just the right amount of dressiness to ripped jeans and heels or a crop top and pants, a fedora will keep you photo ready when Houston weather just isn't cooperating with your hair. While this hat won't necessarily be helpful in keeping you warm, it does provide a sexy fall look.
This classic fur pillbox can be made more animal-and budget-friendly by choosing faux fur instead. Perhaps not as common in the South where it's less likely to snow or freeze, the Zhivago offers a glamorous look for those oh-so-cold days. Perfect for outdoor affairs like a Christmas tree lighting or a day of outdoor retail therapy, this is undoubtedly the most fashionable way to stay warm.
A common feature of sweatshirts and jackets, hoods are a cute yet simple way to up your fall wardrobe game. The ideal accessory for when our city's erratic weather changes in the middle of the day or when you accidentally get caught in a torrential downpour, a hoodie offers just the right amount of protection. Most importantly, pulling up your hood offers a laid-back, photo-ready look when your hair isn't cooperating. This is Houston, after all.
