Smarter Style: Fashion 911 -- Find me a slouchy beanie hat!
January 8, 2013 at 12:00 AM

I've now entered Year 3 of my Eternal Search for it. It being a cool, hip slouchy beanie hat. We've all seen them donned by celebs in those mags in the checkout aisle. With scarfs just so, jeans, boots and that hat. A little baggy on the back of the head, perched askew. They are perfect for chilly city days, not too tight to muss the hair, can almost leave them on all day, inside, outside.

I want one. But I have yet to find one that works on me. During my quest, I've tried on quite a few. This is my year I will find it, I know I will. I won't give up. Okay, yes, I'm now obsessed. I'm channeling my inner Gollum...image me whispering, "My preeeecccccioussss!"

Here are ones I'm going to try next:

This is a  super-cute one from Nordstrom's, with a hint of angora and cashmere. Comes in so many colors...if it works, I can grab a couple more to mix it up. I just fear it may not have enough "slouch" to it.

ASOS has one that definitely looks to have the slouch factor, but am wondering if it may be too small. I like the gray color too. Hmmm....

I like the raw edge on this one and it looks to have the right slouch and is classic black...over at MissKL, but could be too short? Might be a good contender.

I'm not afraid to venture into the men's section to find this hat, my friends. This one on Urban Excess says it is the type worn by David Beckam. And who is cooler than Becks? Right, no one.

Or perhaps I just should not wear a slouchy beanie hat...perhaps the fashion gods are telling me something. Perhaps I need to switch it up all together. Earmuffs from Saks anyone?

Do you like the slouchy hat look? What do you use to keep your ears and head cozy?

    I dont like them.  I have used the ski headband thingies that go around head and cover ears.  I have an old hat (no idea what style it is) that has a cuff for the forehead.

    I don't wear hats often.  A slouchy hat is not me at all.  But my dear CM friend Cheri made me a great hat/scarf combo that I wear when I'm shovelling my driveway.

    I have several of these hats that I knit for myself. They are super comfy.

    The hats are all cute.  I use a big head wrap scarf to keep my head warm.

    I like the look, but I would have to leave it on all day, can't imagine what they would do to my hair.
