is a popular accessory for keeping heads warm this winter. But it is not the only hat that can offer both comfort and style. The baker boy hat, when chosen in the right material, is also a great hat choice this winter. Here’s a bit about it. The history of the baker boy hat
. The baker boy hat is not too far removed from the cap! It is characterised by its puffed-out top and short visor. Aside from being more flexible than a cap, it is also more stylish and feminine. This ultra-Parisian head accessory owes its French name (Gavroche) to one of the characters from Victor Hugo’s novel “Les Misérables” and first appeared in the 19th century.
The return of the baker boy hat
. The baker boy cap has had its ups and downs. Sometimes favoured by women, other times by men. Though it has never disappeared completely, it has not always been at the heart of the biggest trends; but it is back this season for an urban and bohemian look in a number of different colours and materials.
Choosing your baker boy hat
. For the winter, opt for cosy materials. You don’t have to catch frost bite to look stylish. Go for leather, felt, tweed or wool. Wool is the material of choice if you want to be ultra-trendy. As for colour, seasoned fashionistas keep it neutral. Black, grey, burgundy or brown for a perfectly autumnal look.
How to wear the baker boy hat
. The baker boy hat can be worn on short, mid-length or long hair. It sits on top of the head without casting a shadow over your pretty face. Fashionistas wear it tipped slightly to the side or even backwards. The baker boy hat should be worn on loose, slightly dishevelled hair
for an artistic, bohemian look. Scrunch up your hair with a styling mousse for a tousled effect.
