Winter Hats for All Kinds of Weather Street Style Style

Hot Hat Styles to Keep You Warm This Winter

Photos by Crystal Nicodemus and Kristin Yamada

Not dressing for the weather is never in fashion—after all, shivering is pretty unflattering. And yet, sometimes cold weather accessories cramp our style. Especially when it comes to hats. Finding one that suits us and our attire is a challenge. One we accept!

Taking our cues from the street-style set, we’ve rounded up several hats and caps to keep us warm this winter. They’re all really so chic, we’re calling them this season’s crowning achievement.

Asking for a Friend: How to Wear a Scarf Now

“Asking for a Friend” is our advice series that seeks to solve all manner of fashion predicaments with the help of our smart and stylish Nordstrom colleagues. 

Scarves, so pretty. So elegant. So confounding. Although this simple strip of fabric is often lauded as an instant outfit upgrade, wearing a scarf is an acquired skill. To that end, we spoke with our Styling Director, Ruth Basloe, on the best ways to wear one now.

The question: How to wear a scarf without looking like our bubbies? More to the point, how and where do you tie them?

The advice giver: Nordstrom Styling Director Ruth Basloe

The solution: “The freshest way to wear them right now is in place of another type of accessory, so as a necklace, bracelet or belt,” says Ruth. “I’m glad to see scarves having a moment as they come in handy when I can’t be bothered to think about my outfit. I just grab a basic white shirt and pants, and a scarf instantly adds a level of sophistication.”

Below, we’ve got it all tied up for you: some photo inspiration, guidance from Ruth, plus a video that shows ways to wrap a scarf and some shopping links.

Best of Paris Fashion Week Street Style

As Paris Fashion Week comes to a close, we’re reflecting on our favorite street-style looks and getting better acquainted with the ladies who wore them—by creeping around on their Insta accounts. (You’re like a friend from afar if you follow!) Because not everyone can accessorize with an umbrella, puddle jump in stilettos and layer three shirts, we love the women who try and succeed. Bien fait!
