Hat Hair? A Cashmere Solution


For years I’ve failed to find a hat that would NOT: 1) squish my hair; 2) abandon my ears; 3) make me look ridiculous; or 4) be easily left behind. And, then … finally … a solution reared it’s head (so to speak). And it wasn’t a hat at all, but a cozy cashmere “hood.”

Egged on by a friend, I wandered into a charming boutique in Soho and discovered a rainbow of colorful cashmere accessories — fingerless gloves, arm warmers, scarves, wraps, baby hats — and the aforementioned hoods named appropriately: “Grace” (a la elegant Grace Kelley) and the hand-knitted “Wendy” (a la casual Peter Pan), $100 & $135. An additional plus, they’re just the thing for low temp airline cabins when you’d give all for a warmer neck. (The black one’s perfect for my husband.)
