We're Thinking About Fur Hats Again

Starting with Yves Saint Laurent F/W 1992 Couture, obviously.


Stay warm, look chic —  that's the lemma of fur hats. As a practical winter staple, fur hats are a fun alternative for such a frosty season, useful and stylish with that hint of frivolity that all fashionistas adore. Associated by some with Audrey Hepburn's black fur hat moment in the snow and by others with '90s British funk and acid-jazz band Jamiroquai, this warm little extra has recently experienced a prominent revival. Seen on celebrities from Brazilian model Adriana Lima to actress Angelina Jolie in Phillip Noyce's film Salt, prestigious designers like the late Yves Saint Laurent have always cherished the accessory — and nowadays, things are no different. Spotted in the latest F/W collections from renowned brands like Burberry, Jean Paul Gaultier, Dsquared2, and Fendi, it’s undeniable that fur hats are more popular than ever. 

Captivating everyone with its nonchalance, obviously in winter there's no cooler accessory to stick to. If you're looking to incorporate a cozy and stylish fur hat into your looks, take a look at our 10 most iconic fur hat moments in fashion below. 🌀
